Show Floor Theater 1

The annual Economic Outlook Report conducted by FRANdata, projects 26,000 new franchised business will open in 2021 and contribute a total of $780 billion to the US economy.  If you are thinking about starting a franchise, NOW is the time!  With so many opportunities, where do you start? How do you know which franchise to buy?  Yes, a franchisor’s proven operating model gives franchisees a head start to creating a business, but there are also other variables to consider, including investment costs and operational requirements.  

This lively panel discussion led by distinguished franchisee experts and moderated by Dr. John Hayes -- one of the few people to have been a franchisee, a franchisor and an advisor to franchisors and franchisees-- will share how to examine your strengths and preferences and line them up with the appropriate franchise opportunities, what the road to franchising looks like, and how you can succeed as a franchisee.
