Learn about the Semi-Absentee Franchise Business Model

Overview: Are you currently working, financially can’t leave your job, but would like to be a business owner of a “real” business – a franchise? A semi-absentee franchise model could be the answer. It can be that “bridge” to transition from “employee” to “business owner”.

In this workshop, we’ll cover the franchising basics as well as investment requirements, financing options, the franchise disclosure documents, franchise types and industries, candidate motivations and the franchise investigation process.

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