Is Franchising For You?

Tuesday, February 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm • Organized By FranNet Office
6500 W 110th Street, Overland Park, KS 66211


Buying a franchise can be a great way to get into business vs. starting from scratch.  A good franchise includes training, proven business systems, support from the franchisor, and history of information from other franchisees in the system.  You’ll hear from Chris Coleman and Alison Mairet, both franchisees and franchise consultant.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • Franchise industry overview
  • Determine if franchising is right for you
  • Pros and cons of purchasing a franchise
  • What to look for in a quality franchise
  • How to evaluate the options and determine the Best Choices for You.
