Franchising as a Career, an Investment, or Both? 
Thinking about business ownership but concerned about the risks? Terese McGroarty from FranNet of Northern Ohio will share how franchise ownership can mitigate the risk of starting your own business and help you succeed faster. Explore franchising as a career option, an investment, or both! And learn how franchising is more than just food & retail stores!

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Starting a franchise vs. an independent business vs. buying an existing business
  • The best types of franchises for today's economy
  • The myths about franchising and the mistakes to avoid

This will be a round-table discussion with specific examples you can directly apply and immediately benefit from.

All who attend will receive a handout with valuable information. Bring your questions, ideas, and experiences to share!
