Franchise Ownership : In Business For Yourself. Not by Yourself!

When: July 31, 2013
Where: E-Space, 36-46 37th Street, Long Island City, NY 11101
Time: 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Cost: Free

Join us for a high-level look at the $2 trillion Franchise Industry.  Franchising today is much more than fast food and retail.  There are over 3,100 national franchises that do just about anything you can imagine – from home tutoring to home cleaning. Opportunities abound for first time business owners, new entrepreneurs, or former execs from the C-suite seeking independence in their own business,  an opportunity to diversify their portfolio and a platform for building wealth . The franchise model offers more control over time and lifestyle and provides an equity building vehicle for the future.

"In Business for Yourself... Not by Yourself!" takes a look at a business ownership model that leverages an existing brand & proven business system, provides support & training from an expert management team, and offers an alternative pathway for control of finances and building wealth. Franchise businesses are easier to finance and command higher P-E ratios when you sell.
