Success story: Hub55 member signs first franchisee in Connecticut


Ney Queiroz spent more than 10 years teaching digital marketing to young professionals. His passion for teaching determined the core of Green Digital, a Brazilian Franchise network of digital marketing agencies, that he co-founded. A key part of Queiroz’s routine is to train new franchisers, making sure they are ready to represent the company and conquer new markets.

Based in Curitiba, Brazil, Green Digital has expanded its operations through the home-office franchise model and has franchisee branches in seven Brazilian states, Colombia, Angola, and in Florida, in the United States. To increase the company’s presence in the USA, Queiroz and Green Digital joined Hub55 and, in less than 2 months of operations, the company closed its first franchisee contract in the state of Connecticut.

Queiroz explains that “the goal is to consolidate the company’s operations in the United States, where it has already served clients from Orlando and Miami. With this step, the company starts to work in a strategic macro-region, which involves Hartford, New York and several other business cities, enabling the accelerated growth in an active market and with great demands of services in the digital marketing field”.

From the furnished office of Hub55, located at the 9th floor of 195 Church building, in down town New Haven, Green Digital and its new and upcoming franchisees have access to administrative support and an extensive networking with associations, government and business development entities. “To take advantage of our relationship with the Brazilian community in Connecticut, we are now planning with Ney Queiroz a training session for community members interested in having their own Green Digital franchise”, said Karina Fensterseifer, marketing manager of Paseli Consulting, the company behind Hub55.
