Franchising Can Be An Exciting Career Alternative. Find Out If It’s Right For You.

Overview: Franchise ownership is one of the fastest growing segments of business ownership, and with good reason. It is affordable, offers a proven method of success, allows for easy entry, and provides options for a variety of backgrounds and skill levels. But before you take the plunge, attend this interactive session and walk away with a better understanding of how franchising works and if it’s the right option for you.

You will learn and discuss:

  • What a franchise is and how it differs from ownership of an independent business
  • Critical factors in achieving success with a franchise
  • How to evaluate potential franchises and determine whether they are right for you

We will also leave time for your questions.
