Media Bio

Stacey Marmolejo is the creator of Franchise Prep Academy (FPA), an unbiased program in which first time entrepreneurs learn all they need to know to buy and own a franchise business.

FPA’s mission is to help military veterans explore franchise ownership as their path to purpose, financial wealth and happiness in civilian life so they can serve their community with the same pride and skills they used while serving our country.

After 25 years of climbing a corporate ladder, Stacey gave up a prestigious Senior Vice President position with a national firm to purchase a start-up franchise. 16 years later she successfully sold her franchise business and now dedicates her time to helping entrepreneurs who want to pursue a similar path to career success and life happiness.

In addition to her bootcamp and courses, Stacey volunteers her time mentoring vets interested in entrepreneurship. She has also been featured in Entrepreneurs United, Management Blueprint, Veteran on the Move, Franchise Times, CBS, Fox News, Authority magazine, Buzzfeed, Thrive Global and Yahoo Finance!
