(Toronto, ON) February 11, 2014
For many small business owners, franchising provides a fast and cost efficient way to expand across Canada and beyond. To assist entrepreneurs looking to gain market share through franchising, the Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) offers its full-day How to Franchise Your Business seminar. This years seminar will take place on February 27 at the SW Hotel Toronto Airport at 5400 Dixie Road in Mississauga, Ontario.
As a growth strategy, franchising allows the small business owner to expand faster and with less capital than other business models, says Lorraine McLachlan, CFAs President and CEO. For over a decade, CFAs How to Franchise Your Business seminar has been empowering entrepreneurs with the resources, strategies and expert advice they need to transform their businesses into successful franchise systems.
Before launching a franchise program, prospective franchisors should consult legal, financial and franchise experts to ensure their concept can be franchised and to assist in the development of legal documents, operations manuals, training materials and more. By offering access to all of these experts at a fraction of what it would cost to consult each one separately, CFAs How to Franchise Your Business Seminar is a cant-miss event for any business owner looking to expand through franchising.
Topics at the How to Franchise Your Business Seminar include:
What exactly is happening in the Canadian franchising environment? Trends and recent developments.
Ensure you attract the best. Strategies for marketing to potential franchisees.
Don't forget about the law. The legal side of franchising and avoiding the pitfalls.
Money is always an issue. Financing the franchise and dealing with bankers.
Been there, done that! Dos and donts from Todd Wylie, Vice President of Development at Panago Pizza, a British Columbia-based chain that has successfully expanded across Canada with over 180 locations.
