Meet Aaron's Franchise Owner, Todd Wilkins
"When I took a look at Aaron's, I took a very hard look. Like a good CPA, I compared their ROI to every other business and franchise I could find and there was no comparison. Then I talked to their corporate folks, shopped their stores, and visited with their franchisees.
"After college, I got my CPA and went to work for one of the big-name accounting firms. I never saw myself owning a lease-to-own franchise, but when I compared Aaron's to other franchise businesses, I could see that Aaron's was different.
"It's a Great Lifestyle"
"With my Aaron's stores, I have family-friendly hours, manageable employees, and satisfied customers: we give a growing segment of the market an opportunity to purchase necessities like furniture, appliances, electronics and computers. I know we're fulfilling an important need.
"If you have an entrepreneurial itch to scratch, I encourage you to look at the franchise concept that has given me fulfillment and helped to secure my family's future. I'm proud to say that I'm an Aaron's franchise owner.
