Whether it’s the business-minded person who wants to be their own boss, or a new graduate looking to get into franchising, International Franchise Expo (IFE) offers an array of franchise opportunities for entrepreneurs in all walks and stages of life. Attendees are sure to find opportunities to fit every lifestyle and budget, ranging anywhere between $10K and $1M.
Tom Portesy, President of MFV Expositions, explains that the benefits of the expo go well beyond just seeing and learning about numerous franchise choices in a face-to-face platform. He says, “The best part about attending the expo has the opportunity to explore and network with industry-leading franchise brands and attend comprehensive educational programs.”
This year, workshops and seminars cover the following topics: The A to Zs of Buying a Franchise, How to Franchise Your Business, and How to Finance.
Recently, MFV Expositions acquired the rights of the Best Franchisee of the World – a global event highlighting the best franchisees with the most innovative ideas which add value to their brands – the “2019 Best Franchisee of the United States.” The winner will be announced at the expo.
