Paul Segreto, founder of The Franchise Today Podcast, Returns for a Visit!
After 10 solid episodes of Franchise Today, related exclusively to Covid-19 and it's impact on franchsing, we pivoted with the news cycle, producing 3 back-to-back episodes on civil unrest and reacial inequality in our country. Then, last week's story about Martha Matilda Harper, America's first hair salon owner and the mother of modern day "retail franchising" was a bit of a break from the heavier news of the prior weeks, when Jane Plitt Martha's biographer stopped in to tell the story. This week, we stay in that genre, as we talk with another pioneer: Paul Segreto. Some 11 years ago, Paul was a podcasting pioneer, when he began the Franchise Essentials Podcast, which shortly thereafter, morphed into Franchise Today. Paul hosted Franchise Today on a solo basis for quite some time, before I joined him as his co-host and co-producer, for several years, before Paul ultimately turned the reigns over to me completely, more than a year and a half ago. Well, this week, Paul is back! He's here to pay us a visit, reflect on the news of the day and catch us up on what he has been doing ever since. Paul Segreto, this week, on Franchise Today.
