Who is Josh Brown
Josh Brown is a franchise lawyer who has been in practice for almost 14 years with about 10 years in the franchise space. He is based in Indiana but does franchise work all over the country.
About six years ago, Josh started his weekly franchise podcast called Franchise Euphoria. It is a platform where franchisors and franchisees from all over the world can share their stories, their challenges, and the obstacles they’ve overcome, all to provide good and free valuable information for people who are in and around franchising.
The combination of his law practice, managing the podcast, and everything else is what keeps Josh busy.
