WDCEP to Host Strategic Franchising Workshop
September 3rd, 2014
Franchising is a powerful business model used by over a million businesses in the U.S. However, in order to achieve long term success, a franchise must be a “win-win” for both the franchisor and the franchisee. This unique workshop will explore how to create a strategic path towards becoming a franchisee and how to take a business concept through the franchise process. In addition, our distinguished presenter will provide a detailed workbook for each attendee to refer to during the seminar and as a resource guide after the seminar. Whether you are a business owner who wants to franchise your concept, or an entrepreneur who wants to get behind a franchise concept…this event is for you!
