The Franchise Solutions Roundtable

Overview: In this small-group, conference room setting, you’ll have the chance to learn about franchising as a possible career path. Franchising ownership is one of the fastest growing segments of business ownership, and with good reason. It can be 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:

  • An overview of franchising
  • The franchise disclosure documents
  • Financing alternatives
  • Advantages and disadvantages of franchise ownership
  • Franchise types and industries
  • The franchise investigation process

We will, of course, also leave time for your questions.

 Diane has an MBA and is currently finishing her first book on franchising.
