Art Coley, Jr • CFE
Art Coley has been passionate about small business ownership since he was 15 when he opened a hamburger stand in Temple, TX, and eventually started franchising. Art’s various career endeavors have been centered around making small business ownership accessible for entrepreneurs worldwide.
In 2015, Art noticed a gap in the franchising industry. A franchise might have a good business model and initial success in unit growth, but without a focused system for franchise development, the franchise stalled out. Using decades of experience driving system-wide revenues for Top 200 brands, he formed CGI Franchise. Art and CGI Franchise have addressed the gap in systems and processes for a thriving franchise development team. The system is called the Recruitment Operating System®. Over the years, Art has been influenced by several key figures, including a 1994 encounter with Bud Hadfield, founder of the International Center for Entrepreneurial Development (ICED). Bud inspired Art to deepen his understanding of the franchise industry and the correlation it had on small business owners. The rest is history.
Art’s passion for working with franchise brands in development, recruiting, and onboarding has made him one of the top franchise development professionals in franchising.
He resides in Temple, Texas with his wife, Jean. They have three sons, one granddaughter, and one dog.
