Just Between Friends: The Big Idea

Shannon Wilburn and Daven Tackett, owners of Tulsa-based Just Between Friends Franchise Systems Inc., taped a segment for the CNBC show “The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch” late last month. The segment, titled “Hidden Millions,” aired Jan. 28.
The popular cable show features successful entrepreneurs and business owners who have turned their “big idea” into millions.
During the trip to New York, Wilburn was interviewed for ABCNews.com, WomenForHire.com and Small Business Television.
“It’s been amazingly busy ever since,” said Diane White, co-owner and vice president at Emerge Interactive Media, the public relations and marketing agency for the firm. “Their Web site was blowing up that night.”
JBF Franchise Systems Inc. has grown from a small consignment sale in a Tulsa living room 10 years ago to a $4.5 million business, up 80 percent from $2.5 million in 2006. The franchise system now boasts 61 franchises in 16 states.
