About me

WorldWise Franchise – Here you’ll find my experience. 

First and foremost, however, is that my focus is on you the possible Franchisee.  I will guide, advocate, and work for you.

In the interest of absolute transparency I would ask that you refer to one of the most significant articles I’ve written as part of my blog. It can be found here:


As an original founder and creator of the International Franchise Professionals Group (Emeritus) I assisted with the development, design, infrastructure, strategy, organization, established the name of the group, and determined the guidelines and procedures for this online for profit subscription endeavor.  With extensive experience in franchising, as both Franchisee and Franchisor I’ve has been involved with both start up and major franchisors throughout my career. My experience includes franchise sales and development, franchise support, operations, marketing, financial management, real estate, construction, both domestic US and international franchise brand building, and brand acquisitions.

I’ve been associated in executive capacities with several premier and world class brands such as Wendy’s, Dunkin’ Donuts, Sbarro, and Focus Brands, Cinnabon, Carvel, (Roark Capital) Murphy’s Business Brokers, etc.  I’ve served in a variety of progressive capacities such as General Manager, Director, Vice President, President, Chief Operating Officer, and Managing Director.  I’ve has also served as Country Manager to 5 brands in Asia and the Middle East and lived internationally while doing so.

As a Managing Director for International Development I developed and implemented a strategic and tactical international development and franchising plan, serving as a model for international development.

A well-known public speaker in the area of both domestic and international business development, award-winning Mr. Perrotta has been interviewed on CNN and various other business networks, including radio and professional podcasts.  Along with extremely talented teams, Kim has been responsible for literally thousands of newly developed businesses and locations both domestically and internationally.

Passionate about working with the American Diabetes Association and the Congressional Diabetes Caucus for Diabetes Advocacy with Police Departments, First Responder EMTs, and in particular in conjunction with the Cleveland Clinic / Martin County Health for the purpose of ongoing education and refresher courses.  Additionally,  I am a Certified Mentor with SCORE (separate and apart from WorldWise Franchise Development).

Kim is an invaluable resource when it comes to franchising. Rare today, he is exactly who he portrays on his social media; a tireless supporter of franchisees, ethical franchising, and meaningful franchise reform. Kim helps selflessly and is a wealth of knowledge in the industry from both the franchisee and franchisor sides.

Keith Miller

Principal at Franchisee Advocacy Consulting

“Kim is an unabashed advocate for franchisees. He’s been in the industry long enough to see the good, the bad, and the ugly. When he sees the ugly, he’s not afraid to speak out or challenge others so that the ugly is exposed. Mostly, Kim wants to see the good succeed and see the bad be forced to move towards the good and a place where all stakeholders in the industry succeed”.

Over the last 25+ years Kim has continued to be a resource for market insights. I am honored to be able to have a mentor of his caliber”.
