A national franchise consultant since 2004, Tana Hutchinson’s skillsets in franchising and business analysis provide her clients with a dynamic power-punch combination. Tana walks you through an extensive investigation of franchise opportunities while adding energy and fun to your business search. Her warm approach and comprehensive knowledge of franchising puts you immediately at ease and quickly on the path to education in business ownership.


Tana’s diverse business experience in corporate America includes companies specializing in defense intelligence contracting, information systems, executive recruiting, and construction equipment rental. It was in the midst of her experience in this last industry, while working as a business analyst for NationsRent (now Sunbelt Rentals), that she was first introduced to franchising and became an active member of the International Franchise Association.


She later joined Tutor Time Childcare Learning Centers with franchises nationwide, where she helped franchisee candidates learn and navigate the franchise buying process. With her move to The Cleaning Authority, she assumed a significant franchise development role, working with franchisee candidates by discussing their goals for business ownership, educating them on the concept and industry, providing market research, assisting in determining territory, and, ultimately, helping them reach their dreams of owning a franchise. She played an instrumental role in helping The Cleaning Authority become a large national brand.


Having lived and worked all over the country—placing hundreds of people into all kinds of businesses from coast-to-coast—and satisfying her own entrepreneurial aspirations by owning a commercial construction business and becoming an independent franchise consultant, Tana is a wonderful resource for prospective franchisees evaluating opportunities that will help them realize their dreams.


Tana, a Virginia Tech graduate, and her husband, a Notre Dame graduate (fun Hokie/Irish household during football season!), reside in beautiful southern California. They enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle including travel, hiking, ocean sports, aviation, and overall fitness. Tana’s caring personality and vibrant lifestyle reflects her commitment to maintaining balance, focus, and determination in her own life and she brings all of her skills and talents to bear in order to help YOU reach your business ownership goals.
