The Benefits of Being A Wise Cracks Franchisee:

Bob Belyea

Retired Ontario Wise Cracks Franchisee

I wish I had found this business ten years earlier! I chose the Wise Cracks Franchise as it”s an established business model/brand that has an excellent reputation. Our Wise Seal® products and Wise Dry® technology are industry leading and most important for me is that they are exclusive to the Franchisee only and are not licensed for use outside the Franchise.

Wise Cracks offers me an opportunity to live and maintain a great lifestyle that we enjoy, as well as being family run, which allowed my wife to quit her job and work with me in our Wise Cracks business.
