We invite you to register for a special program hosted by the International Franchise Association’s Social Sector Franchising Task Force, in partnership with the University of New Hampshire’s Rosenberg International Franchise Center.

The webinar will feature an engaging discussion around the topics explored in a recent article published in the UMKC Law Review, “Scaling Social Enterprises through Franchise Models: Rethinking Social Franchise Agreements,” authored by attorneys Deborah Burand, David Koch, and Katie Yang.

Deborah Burand and David Koch will lead the conversation examining why (and why not) a franchise model rather than alternative growth strategies may be attractive to social enterprises that seek to scale and the implications for their franchise agreements. A social franchisor — Mercado Fresco — will also join the program to share her learnings from her social franchising agreement.

Who Should Attend?

  • Any franchisor, franchisee, or partner to the industry interested in learning more about this topic
  • Any social enterprise, nonprofits, or NGOs interested in expanding their number of locations
