Thinking about business ownership, but not willing to take on the risk of starting your own business from scratch? It may be time to consider franchising. From consulting to restaurants, from gyms to service-based businesses, from home based to personal services, franchising offers a wide range of opportunities for entrepreneurs. In this workshop, you will learn: (1) What is franchising?; (2) What's the difference between owning a franchise and starting my own business?; (3) Types of franchises available; (4) Where to find out about franchise opportunities; (5) Initial investment requirements; (6) How COVID affected small businesses and franchises; and (7) Is business ownership in general, right for you? You will leave this workshop with a better understanding of the pros and cons of independent business ownership and franchises.
Led by franchise ownership coach Suzanne Gray, who has been coaching people who are exploring franchises since 2005.
