WICHITA — Most business owners like a little publicity for their new businesses, but Dan Carney isn’t most business owners.
Franchise founder Nathan Smith and his business partner, Traci Smith-Cone, have been consulting with Carney on their business.
“I consult with anybody that’s really interested and calls me and asks for help,” Carney says. “This is what happened with Nathan.”
He says he’s “hopefully helped him form some ideas that have been successful.”
Carney says the two disagree on how much publicity a business should have before it’s proven successful.
An ex-employee of Carney’s wanted to open the Phoenix store, and he agreed to back him.
