Franchise ownership is one of the fastest growing segments of business ownership, and with good reason. It is affordable, offers a proven method of success, allows for easy entry, and providesoptions 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.  
 
An important feature of this workshop includes a hands-on look at an actual franchise disclosure document. The document discloses extensive information about the franchisor and is intended to give you enough information to make an educated decision regarding your  investment. Key areas include initial franchise fees and expenses, obligations of the franchisor and franchisee, territory restrictions, renewal and termination, franchisor financial statements, plus much more.

Session highlights:

  • Franchising overview
  • Pros and cons of franchising
  • An up close look at an actual Franchise Disclosure Document
