I want something that I can pass on for the next generation. Having four kids, I'd like to set a model to give them the idea that perhaps one day that they could, not only run a business, but also be self- sufficient. Then they wouldn't be wondering about the next day or what's the possibility of job opportunities. They could even create jobs so that they can be a part of the American dream, giving jobs instead of always having to look for one.
We're currently owners of two restaurants and we're looking for other opportunities. I think it's a good opportunity to come and learn and explore and see what's out there. There are quite a few questions you get answered by talking to these people directly at the booth as far as original investment fee, what size the store requirements are, etc. So it's good to get that information before you really try to figure out what you want to do.
We are looking to start our own franchise and the conference was very informative.
Very well put together! I gathered lots of information and the companies were welcoming.
Great expo - I am moving forward with a franchise!

The event was awesome and so many opportunities. It was a pleasant surprise to have some taste tests and samples from the different companies. The meetings I attended were great as well. I came early and stayed all day. Thank you for putting together such a wonderful opportunity!
