Family Financial Centers, LLC (FFC), a network of community-based financial service centers that offers financial services including check cashing, bill payment, money orders, wire transfers, gift card buy back, pre-paid debit cards, and more, announced the recent graduating class of new franchisees from training.

All new franchisees are required to participate in a week-long training at the FFC Corporate Headquarters in Doylestown, PA where they are taught the fundamentals on operating their money service business. New franchisees are also required to complete the FFC Anti-Money Laundering Training program. 

This recent class of graduates was comprised of Peter Hofbauer and Timothy Larkin. Peter and Tim are business partners who will be opening their first Family Financial Center in Northern New Jersey before the end of the year. David Jenkelowitz, Director of Training, Operations & Compliance, says, “Both Peter and Tim have a financial background. They are eager to use their prior business experience, combined with everything they learned in training about operating a Family Financial Center, and start putting it to good use as they begin their journey of business ownership in their new FFC location.”

The Family Financial Centers (FFC) franchise was designed to be an alternative to rapidly disappearing neighborhood branch banks to serve the unbanked, the underbanked, small businesses and the more than 50% of Americans living paycheck-to-paycheck. “Our financial service centers have the sophistication and professionalism of a larger corporation, yet also have the personal touch of a traditional bank. Because of the excellent support we provide to our franchisees and our proven system, we continue to welcome new franchisees into our system as we expand and grow our locations”, comments Paul Eckert, Founder and CEO of Family Financial Centers.
