Who i am
Who is Ralph Massetti
Father, Friend, Franchisor, Franchise Consultant & Fearless Advocate
I’m a businessman at heart, but a passionate lover of all creatures great and small.
As the longstanding President and CEO of The Franchise Builders and other businesses, I leverage my expertise in franchise consulting, development, marketing and technology to bring an entirely new level of customer experience to the franchise industry. I work with a rare personal involvement that is rooted in the genuine desire to help others succeed.
I’ve come a long way from my tough upbringing in Chicago. While it wasn’t an easy road, it left me well prepared to take on the challenges of being an entrepreneur, fighting for the merciful treatment of animals and serving my community through political pursuits.
While I was born and raised in Chicago, my true “hometown”, I now primarily live with my family in the Phoenix (Scottsdale), Arizona area.
