Many people dream of starting their own business. Every year, thousands of Americans consider franchising as a way to make that dream a reality. For 12 years, The Franchise & Business Opportunities Expo has been a significant resource for people looking to open their own business across the country. This event, returning to Meadowlands Expo Center, November 15th-16th, 2014 plays a critical role in helping people find the business that is right for them. Event attendees can speak directly with representatives from successful full-time franchises and part-time business opportunities that are now expanding in the Tri-State region.    

The show provides an opportunity for business seekers and those looking to grow an existing business, to gain valuable knowledge, insight and guidance. The event offers a first-class educational seminar series featuring Professional Business Coaches, Franchise Industry Experts and Entrepreneurial Mentors. Visiting attendees can learn what it takes to be successful at starting, building or growing a business.

People consider buying into a franchise system for many reasons including support, security and proven success rates. The economic impact of the Franchise industry is substantial. Franchising has a direct impact on local economies as 95% of franchises are still in business after 5 years. Buying a franchise more than doubles a person’s chance to survive as a business owner. Franchisees leverage the training and marketing support from their parent companies to become a profitable business.
