Summer is finally in full swing, and once again the franchise industry is gearing up for one of its biggest events next Thursday through Saturday, the International Franchise Expo (IFE) at the Javits Convention Center in New York City. The IFE is a premier annual event, offering over 70 free seminars and the chance to meet with over 450 of the top franchising brands.
Once again, our own Dr. John Hayes will be in attendance to teach his highly coveted session the A to Z’s of Buying a Franchise on Friday and Saturday mornings. As the newly-named Titus Chair for Franchise Leadership and director of the new Titus Center for Franchising at Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, Florida, John will deliver the essentials of researching and evaluating a franchise to those in attendance who are serious about investigating franchise opportunities at the show.
Always a sold out session, John has been teaching the course at the International Franchise Expo for over two decades now. Perfect for those thinking about buying a franchise, the course is an introduction to franchising and looks at how to invest in the “ideal” franchise system, giving prospective franchisees a good glimpse into how to be successful while also explaining the FDD (Franchise Disclosure Document) and franchise agreements.
Attendees will leave the comprehensive session with a booklet containing all the information presented, John’s book Franchise Pre-Investment Checklist and his exclusive list of 92 Questions To Ask Before You Buy A Franchise.
