Turning Opportunity into Reality: Key Insights on How to Be a Successful Franchise Business Owner

In addition to vision and capital, a third key element to successful franchise business ownership is about the team and infrastructure choices you make. Aligning your passion and commitment with the right concept and surrounding yourself with the best resources and people can make all the difference in a successful business. Because, in franchising, the key is that you’re in business for yourself, not by yourself.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:  

  • How to connect what you’re passionate about with opportunities available from franchise brands
    • How some brands specifically support veterans and minorities in ownership opportunities
    • Peer insights on how fellow minority entrepreneurs selected their ownership opportunities
  • Questions to ask before signing on the dotted line with a franchise brand
  • How to use the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD)
  • What kind of team you need for franchise success, such as legal, communications, and workforce
  • Leveraging resources, including mentors, national and local non-profits that support franchise business owners through programs like SCORE, local chambers of commerce, and groups like the International Franchise Association and its Diversity Institute, Black Franchise Leadership Council, Hispanic-Latino Franchise Leadership Council, Pride Council, and VetFran programs
  • Answers to your questions about turning a franchise opportunity into reality
