New York, NY, June 2, 2023 -  Rafael Alvarez the Founder and CEO of the Latino Franchise Association announced Franquicias Fest, the largest latino franchise expo in the country. The announcement was made during the International Franchise Expo at the Javits Center in New York City.

The main reason why the Latino Franchise Association is organizing Franquicias Fest is to connect the franchising community (Franchisor, Franchisee, Suppliers and franchise executives) with the latino community. The main purpose is to promote and attract latinos to invest in franchise businesses by becoming franchisees and to convert and launch their successful Latino owned businesses into a nationwide franchise brand and thus becoming a franchisor. 

Franquicias Fest is a very important event for the latino community totally and is Free of cost and is a great opportunity to encourage franchising and entrepreneurship for the public right in the heart of New York City. The goal is to create a franchising ecosystem where franchisors, franchisees, suppliers, professionals and just about everyone that wants to benefit from the franchising business model, can connect and create amazing and highly profitable brands. And most importantly, brands that can have a major positive impact in our community. 

For the remainder of the century, the competitiveness of the American economy will be largely dependent on how well Latinos do nationally. This event will give everyone the opportunity to learn and find out more about the franchising industry. We are going to have more than one hundred franchise brands exhibiting their products and services that are hungry to connect with the Latino Community.  The educational component is key and for that reason we are going to have more than 25 franchise seminars and panels talking about the current topics that will help Latinos understand the value proposition that the franchise industry provides. We have confirmed the participation of many nationwide speakers and panelist that are taking their time to participate in this great event.
