Franchise Expo Austin is the premier event covering the franchise industry for the Greater Austin Area, and serves as the industry's one-stop shop for prospective franchisees.
National franchising activity largely bounced back to the pre-pandemic level in 2021, but states have experienced different levels of economic recovery because of states’ disparities in business climates, migration trends, and change of consumer preferences, among others.
Texas is expected to witness the most growth in franchise activity in 2023, as was the case for 2022. Growth in the Southern U.S. will outpace the rest of the U.S. franchise market. Austin self-proclaims as a fiercely entrepreneurial; pro-business and pro-environment. The Austin region is home to entrepreneurs, startups, growing companies and tech giants.
At Franchise Expo Austin, hundreds of the hottest franchise concepts and opportunities will be on display, and the most qualified investors from the Austin and surrounding areas will be in attendance. The show also offers the industry's most comprehensive conference and educational program to gain the behind-the-scenes information needed for success right from the start. Thousands of entrepreneurs and future business owners from across the United States will attend Franchise Expo Austin, looking for franchise opportunities. Visitors will have the chance to meet face-to-face with franchise opportunities in every industry, across every investment level, full-time and part-time.
In an expanded partnership between MFV Expo and the IFA, all exhibitors can take advantage of official IFA learning sessions each day of the show. There are also learning sessions geared toward CFE candidates seeking certification, which will be offered at the expo on Thursday, September 14, for an additional fee. Whether you are already attending the Expo or are looking for more ways to earn CFE credits, the Thursday CFE Sessions are a great way to learn and earn!
A multitude of other education sessions are available for attendees throughout the Expo show hours! Stay tuned for more information on available education opportunities before and during the show!
