How to Franchise Your Business Workshop


Presented By:
Steve Beagelman, SMB Franchise Advisors

We have all seen and heard the success stories of a small business growing in to a Nationwide Franchise. A key contributor for success is starting on the right path. Drafting a good franchise agreement is as important to a Franchisor as laying a solid foundation is to a builder. All the future revenues of a new Franchisor depend on the ability of franchisees to operate profitably under their franchise agreements.

Join us at 10:00 am on Saturday to learn exactly what you need to do to turn your existing business in to a successful Franchise operation.
