“Finding your path in business ownership: open a franchise or start from scratch?” Heather Rosen, President of FranNet of Virginia, will be presenting a workshop focused on how to maximize your returns and minimize risk when starting a business in the current economy. The course will cover various ways of starting a business and will then go into more details about the often misunderstood franchise model. Come and learn which types of B2b service, consumer service, retail, auto or food franchises have been successful in this or similar markets, and how to safely and efficiently figure out whether one of the 3,000+ franchise businesses is right for you. Everyone has different strengths, weaknesses, goals and risk tolerance levels so there is no one-size-fits-all franchise for each individual and every market.
