The Franchise Show, presented by Allstate, is pleased to be taking place at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, March 24 & 25, 2018. The Show is the perfect venue for attendees to find their best opportunity to attain prosperity and success by taking the first step to becoming a business owner. Many entrepreneurs dream of starting their own business and every year thousands of Americans consider franchising as a way to make it happen. Visitors have the chance to speak directly with representatives from proven, successful franchises. Full-time franchises and part-time business opportunities are available across Illinois. The show plays a critical role in helping people find the business that’s right for them.
“Franchising gives people the opportunity to start a business without feeling overwhelmed and alone. They have the support system of a company behind them with training, marketing and in most cases a proven brand,” said Fred Cox, president, National Event Management, which produces the Franchise Show.
The event features companies that are household names such as Allstate, 7Eleven, Auntie Anne’s Pretzels, Fantastic Sam’s and Circle K. The exhibitors at the show offer a variety of industries from traditional retail stores and restaurants to fitness, home services, education and printing. The Show is also an excellent venue to discover new franchises and get in on the ground floor of a new opportunity.
The Franchise Show successfully hosts thousands of attendees across North America every year, with the hope of helping each one become their own boss. “It’s important to be able to meet and speak with representatives from the companies at the event because it gives you a better understanding of the culture of a company and gives you a better indication of whether or not a company complements your specific personality,” says Mr. Cox. The opportunity to speak directly with representatives from the hottest franchises as well as industry experts make this event a must attend for anyone considering owning a small business or looking to grow their already established business.
The show is a significant source of information for people looking to open their own business and research franchising in depth. Visitors may attend free daily seminars given by industry experts including lawyers, financial specialists and franchise experts that have information that entrepreneurs need to know to start and grow a business. Seminar topics include: 5 Lessons I Learned in My First Year as a Small Business Owner, Secrets of Successful Franchisees and SBA programs to Start, Grow and Finance Your Small Business.
