DoingBusiness2.0: Starting a Franchise

March 5, 2013

Franchising has been a driving force in the U.S. economy for several decades.  In 2007, Washington, DC had 26,000 jobs that are directly tied to franchised businesses.  This month’s Doing Business 2.0 seminar will focus on the benefits of franchising and its challenges from the perspectives of the franchisee as well as the franchisor.  In addition, the seminar will also focus on options for financing a franchise and the expected start-up costs for a given type of franchise.

About Doing Business 2.0
Doing Business2.0 is an initiative of the Washington, DC Economic Partnership directly drawn from our Doing Business in DC publication. The publication is a step-by-step guide for entrepreneurs on how to start or expand a business in DC. Speakers include regional university faculty members, business professionals from DC business resource centers, venture capitalists, and entrepreneurs with successful business ventures. Doing Business 2.0 is an asset for both start-ups and existing businesses. Entrepreneurs and business owners will gain access to some of the city’s top thought-leaders and have the opportunity to network with panelists and other attendees. In WDCEP’s effort to attract, retain and grow businesses in the District, this initiative is an essential educational tool and resource for all those doing business in the nation’s capital
