Learn about the world of franchise businesses.
This presentation is for people interested in business ownership, but may not know where to start. When people think of franchises, they think of large operations like fast food chains. However, there are many franchise businesses that can be started with 1-3 people, with potential to grow over time. We will discuss the many business models in the franchise world, the impact of those businesses on your lifestyle, and setting your expectations for discussions with franchisors. Options for funding a franchise business will also be discussed.
The session is free, but registration required. The Zoom link will be sent to registrants the day before the workshop.
