After an impressive inaugural year, Franchise Expo Midwest rebrands as Franchise Expo Chicago where hundreds of the hottest franchise concepts and opportunities will be on display drawing interest from the most qualified prospects from the Chicagoland area and beyond. Held at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center this September 13-14, Franchise Expo Chicago is set to be a transformative experience for entrepreneurs and franchisors alike.

Chicago has truly established itself as a leading business hub in the Midwest, and continuously attracts aspiring entrepreneurs and talented workers each year. As one of the world’s largest and most diversified economies, the Chicagoland area has become an ideal region to promote franchise expansion and entrepreneurship to those who are ready to learn.

Thousands of entrepreneurs and future business owners from across the United States will attend Franchise Expo Chicago for a unique chance to meet face-to-face with over 100 proven franchise opportunities in every industry, across every investment level, full-time and part-time. Please visit for a comprehensive exhibitor list. Franchise Expo Chicago will also offer free educational seminars and in-depth workshops on “The A to Z’s of Buying a Franchise” and “How to Franchise Your Business.”

“In a promising market like Chicago, it is our goal to have individuals walk out of the expo feeling confident about franchising while franchisors leave with high-quality leads, all while building lasting business relationships,” said Tom Portesy, President and CEO of MFV Expositions, producers of the expo. “This is truly a must-attend event for those looking to grow and develop across the Midwest region.”
