WSI in the News: WSI Franchise Owner Grows Business & Crosses Borders

Posted by Mark Dobson On April - 6 - 2011

“Going Global: Worldwide Expansion Within Reach for Small Businesses” – Business News Daily, March 31, 2011

Here’s a great success story about one local business owner and his journey to expand his business internationally.

Last week WSI Franchise owner and Digital Marketing Consultant, Doug Schust, was featured in a Business News Daily article discussing the challenges and successes of his WSI business’ international expansion. is an online resource for people planning to start a business and for those seeking insight on news and trends affecting small business owners.

Originally based out of Waterloo, ON, Canada, Doug aspired to venture into the international markets and expanded his WSI franchise to Ecuador in 2008. And considering the great successes he’s earned since expanding, his next plans are to take his WSI business to the United States as well as the United Kingdom.

Here’s a short excerpt from the article:

A franchise owner since 1997, Schust always planned on expanding globally, and got the opportunity to do so three years ago in Ecuador. The move has been a successful one, with Schust recently landing a seven-figure account with Metropolitan Touring, a travel company based in Ecuador. Reaching this point, though, has been a long process, Schust said, noting it took two years to get the Ecuadorian franchise running as smoothly as the one in Canada. “The speed in which we all move is a little different,” Schust said of working in different countries. “To get everyone on the same page was a bit of a transition.”
