Area Representative Franchise

John D. Rockefeller, business magnate and philanthropist, is considered to be the wealthiest American of all time.  According to Wikipedia, adjusted for inflation his net worth would have been $336 Billion!   Rockefeller was quoted as saying:

"I would rather earn 1% off a 100 people's efforts than 100% of my own efforts." -John D. Rockefeller

If your ambitions stretch beyond owning a single-unit franchise, then our AR model may be the perfect fit for you.  Top Ten Percent is seeking select candidates to become Area Representative Franchisees. 

As an Area Representative Franchisee, you would secure exclusive rights to develop the Top Ten Percent brand, operating model and system in a three to six region territory.  You would oversee the development of our franchise within that regional territory and coach and mentor 12-24 franchisees that would be under you.  

Area Representative Franchisees would receive 50% of all single unit franchise fees which is currently $12,900 per franchise and 50% of all on-going monthly fees paid by the unit franchisees in your regional territory.*

Part-Time or Passive Basis is Acceptable

An Area Representative Franchise can be operated on a part-time basis, meaning you don't necessarily have to quit your current employment until you feel comfortable in doing so.

If your franchise goals include building an on-going monthly residual income for life, Top Ten Percent may be the franchise for you. 

What is the Top Ten Percent Franchise Model?

Your franchisees help local, small businesses create new customers and promote repeat business, through the use of our mobile marketing platform.  Consumers in your area are able to instantly connect to product and service discounts from top-rated businesses at the point of purchase through the use of the TTP Mobile App.

As an Area Representative you would mentor and coach Top Ten Percent franchisees in your region and through the power of mobile marketing they will instantly connect consumers to product and service discounts from top-rated businesses at the point of purchase.

Mobile Ad Spending Expected to Increase 193% in the Next Three Years to $195 Billion**

The TTP program is membership driven. Consumers first nominate businesses in your area and your franchisees will have the prestigious honor of evaluating these businesses and selecting those that qualify as Top Ten Percent Award Winners.

With a 100% free membership, consumers can Buy From The Best For Less™ byinstantly producing Exclusive Member Discounts on their smart-phone to redeem savings any time, any day and at any TTP endorsed business. No advance purchase necessary. Easy, convenient and no risk!

These best-in-class businesses in over 300 categories will pay your franchisees a nominal, monthly membership fee to benefit from the recognition they receive from their TTP endorsement and to be "digitally" connected to loyal, repeat buyers at a feasible discount price point. TTP Businesses will also gain access to a mobile marketing realm they’d find difficult to effectively do on their own, connecting to customers through an otherwise unavailable and low-cost marketing channel.


Our Founder/CEO, Jerry Clum, founded one of the most successful and fastest growing franchise systems in the country, with over 750 locations in 46 states and seven countries worldwide and $350 Million in annual revenues. He also personally owned 11 franchises of many different franchise brands. Mr. Clum knows first hand what franchise candidates want when they invest in a franchise. He built the Top Ten Percent franchise model around those benefits.

Master Franchises, Area Developers and Area Representative Franchises can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars for many franchise systems.  The Top Ten Percent Area Representative Franchise is very affordable compared to many others.  There is a significant reason for this.  Our goal is to brand nationally as quickly as possible.  Our franchisee candidate lead volume is very significant.  We are receiving up to 400 leads per month.  Compared with other franchise models, this is huge.  Unfortunately, we are only able to currently handle approximately 40 of these candidates each month.  We need your help!  By making the AR Franchise more affordable, it opens up a larger pool of qualified candidates and allows us to quickly build out our infrastructure for franchise development on a national basis.

There are two different sizes of Area Representative Franchises available. A three-region territory has nearly 900,000 in population.***  This would allow for up to 12 franchisees working under you.  A three-region territory has a franchise fee of $38,700 and you must have a minimum of $45,000 of capital available.

Franchisee Testimonials

Preston Schmidt TTP Franchisee

"Top Ten Percent University Training is a cut above the rest in franchise training. My wife and I felt like we got more real world training than we would have paid for in earning our college degrees. The industry examples Jerry provided, along with the number of business and sales aspects covered in such a short amount of time was amazing. We felt honored to be in Jerry's presence as he is so well known and respected in the industry. We highly recommend Top Ten Percent as a low investment franchise; the training received is second to none. We strongly believe that teamwork is a key factor to helping this company strive."

Ted Franklin TTP Franchisee
"I've been in sales for over 20 years and have attended many seminars and training programs and I can honestly say the week spent with Jerry and the rest of the Top Ten Percent staff was second to none. Taking the leap to start your own business is very intimidating and stressful, however, after attending the training at Top Ten Percent University I was 100% sure I had made the right decision. Jerry's knowledge and passion make you realize this business is destined to be the next big thing and I'm thankful I was able to find a way to be a part of it all."
