A New Career as a Franchise Owner? Two Free Events on 1/21 to Tell You More

Just think about it… 

“I’ve got a new job – I’m the boss.”

It’s as simple as that.  As a franchise owner, you are the boss.  No corporate ladder, no busting your rear end for the benefit of someone else.  It’s all about you.

It may sound too good to be true, but franchise ownership could be much more attainable than you may think.  Let me tell you more….

"Careers in Franchise Ownership" - Grand Rapids Workshop
As the West Michigan based FranNet Franchise Placement Specialist, my role is to educate those interested in business ownership on the opportunities that franchising provides and I am hosting a FREE, no-fee, no-obligation workshop on January 21st in Grand Rapids, MI at the Michigan Works office on Straight Ave.

During this event, we’ll cover the basics on business ownership through franchising.

Here is a brief outline of the topics covered in the “Careers in Franchise Ownership” workshop:
  • How franchising can provide a desirable alternative to traditional employment by reducing the risk of ownership to an acceptable level through proven business systems, comprehensive training and ongoing support.
  • Basic information on franchising, including the range of industry categories, investment levels and fees.
  • The legal regulations governing franchising that protect the buyer.
  • A strategic approach to defining your personal business model, quantifying your returns and safely researching and selecting the business opportunity that best fits your unique personality, skills, needs and goals.
  • Growth trends and choices in franchising that offer stability and success in weak and strong economies.
  • A brief overview of FranNet’s no-fee, no-obligation consulting service.
Join us on 1/21 Michigan Works on Straight Ave at 11:30am for this informative program.  Whether you have been thinking about becoming an entrepreneur for a while, or this article somehow caught your eye and peaked your interest – you can learn more and determine if franchsing is right for you.

"Business Ownership Exploration" - Online Webinar
At 8pm on January 21, join me for this free, detailed webinar from the business experts at FranNet. Designed just for you to answer all those initial questions on business and franchising basics, we’ll cover:

  • The advantages to starting a business
  • A look at franchise ownership
  • Misconceptions about franchising
  • Building equity as a strategy
  • How to find the right franchise

Stop climbing the corporate ladder, and create one! If you’re considering business ownership, it’s essential to use the best available resources so you can get it right the first time. At FranNet, we use an established, proprietary process to match a person’s talents and goals with the right franchise choice. In a recent study we conducted on clients we’ve placed into business, we found that:

  • Over 91% of clients we place are still in business after two years
  • More than 85% of our clients are still open after five years
  • Nearly 15% of our clients are top performers in their franchise
  • These are all “Best in Class” numbers for our industry
There are other franchise brokerage-type services out there, but what makes FranNet unique is how we look at your career options first, and then jointly decide if business ownership is the right option for you.   All of our consultants are locally based and bring face-to-face attention to your needs so that we’re personally there for you every step of the way. And perhaps the best part is that our services are completely free to you throughout.

This webinar should last about 60 minutes depending on group participation. Let FranNet help you become what you’ve always wanted to be.
