Are you an entrepreneur without an idea? Maybe a franchise is what you are looking for.

But isn’t franchising just fast food? No! Franchising is not all hamburgers and French fries. In fact, there are over 3,000 franchise concepts in all types of industries. Franchisors are looking for people with well rounded business skills to invest in and learn their concepts. Total investment for franchises range from under $100,000 and up for single locations, and franchises are more financing-friendly because of their proven track records.
In this workshop, you will learn the basics of how to find the right franchise for you, myths and realities of franchising, various types of franchises available, and community resources available for those considering franchising as an option for business ownership.
