My name is Tim McNulty. I am the Chef-Owner of the Lobster Pot Restaurant in Provincetown Massachusetts. We have been in business since 1979. Recently we have decided to expand our business through franchising. After speaking with several franchise development companies we decided on Emerging Franchises. It just felt right. From the first phone call with Greg to working extensively with Samantha on developing the FDD and the Training and Operation Manuals. I am absolutely convinced that we made the right decision. We are still in the development stage but I couldn’t be happier. The energy and professionalism is exceptional. Their knowledge in franchise development is remarkable. Every question that has come up has been answered quickly and accurately. From finding suppliers to helping with Logo design to answering legal questions they have been spot on. They have been instrumental in helping me to create other relationships with businesses that are needed in this process. They have earned my respect and my trust and I am excited about this project every day.

My experience with Emerging Franchises has been nothing short of amazing. We opened our business in May 2017 and knew we wanted to franchise from the beginning. We planned our business as though it was a franchise so we could be ready when the time came to franchise. Greg and Sam contacted my partners and I to discuss franchising our business with them. We were so green to franchising, and everything it entailed, and were honestly stressed to start pursuing it this early. After having multiple conversations over the period of a few months they put all of our fears to rest and made us feel confident that we could do this with their help. I have been personally working with Sam for the last few months and she has been awesome. When she says she can do it all she really can. She keeps me informed everyday on people interested in purchasing a franchise and handles all the leg work. If you are serious about growing your brand and believe franchising is the way, you need to reach out to them. They know what they are talking about and more importantly they are people who do what they say they will.

Foumami America, LLC


From the start, Greg and Samantha helped me form my franchise company. Everything from logo and website to financing assistance for my franchisees and graphic vendors for my graphics on walls. It seemed like anything I needed or whenever I hit a speed bump they were there to help and push it forward with ease. Within my first few weeks of offering franchises, we had our first buyer. I couldn’t be more excited! I started out nervous but with Greg and Samantha by my side I know I have any assistance or help I may need for mine and my franchisees success!

Becoming a Dapper Doughnut owner is an exciting business opportunity. It is a great way to become a part of the restaurant industry and specialized dessert sector. Our franchisees get to be a part of a popular concept with a proven system. Right now, there is opportunity to get in on the “ground floor “and grow with the brand.

If you’re reading this page you’re probably looking at different food franchises and no doubt have learned that most require a significant six figure investment. The Dapper Doughnut franchise is different. Most locations will require well under $200.000, and if you opt to operate a food truck, your out-of-pocket investment will be under $100,000. There are very few businesses that can operate with a footprint of only 200 sq. ft. and with food costs of 10%, so that will compute into a much faster ROI.


The Dog Stop® opened its doors in 2009 after owners Jesse Coslov and Chris Kane spent several years researching the pet care industry, surveying the needs of local pet owners, and planning an all-inclusive facility. Their goal was to create a fun and safe environment where dogs would love to come and play, and pet owners would feel 100% confident in the superior care that their dogs were receiving. ​ Everyone needs a mission, so as the first pups were entering the doors, Jesse and Chris made a commitment to their vision for the service.

Now, you can become a part of this booming pet care industry by owning a The Dog Stop® franchise. Previous pet or dog service experience is NOT required. Our dedicated team will train you and be there to support you on an ongoing basis. Help is never more than a phone call or email away.
