About Me

Rob Bond is a leading national authority on the franchise industry. As the founder and president of Source Book Publications, located in Oakland, California, his sole focus for the past 20 years has been the dissemination of timely and in-depth information on franchising through books, websites and databases. Source Book Publications currently maintains six websites and publishes eight books on franchising, including Bond's Franchise Guide, considered by many to be the "industry bible.

Recognizing the need for a national forum to address the under-representation of minorities in the U.S. franchising community, Bond created the National Minority Franchising Initiative. The 2003-2004 program included Bond's Minority Franchise Guide, the MinorityFranchising.com website and 10 seminars hosted throughout the country.  His partner in the NMFI is Everett Wallace of Wallace Enterprises International.

Since receiving his MBA from Stanford Business School, Bond has built an extraordinary record of achievements in several Fortune 100 companies, real estate development and consulting. As an author, lecturer and consultant, he is regarded as one of the franchise industry's most knowledgeable and widely-quoted spokespersons.
