Franchise Ownership 101
Starting a business through a franchise is often the shortest path to profitability, and some of them require as little as $60K to start and can operate out of a home office – with no food and no retail space to rent. But how do you find the good ones? Several recession-resistant and/or essential franchises have already adapted to the current public health restrictions and some have even experienced an increased demand for their products and services. If you are on an entrepreneurial journey and trying to position yourself for the greatest amount of success during and after the crisis, this is one webinar that you do not want to miss!

• Pros and cons of franchise ownership

• What industries or business are thriving in today’s economy?
• What makes a good franchise owner?
