Is NOW the Right Time to Buy a Franchise?

While there is never a perfect time, there are a lot of advantages to investigating a franchise right now. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and they are helping to fuel the growth and recovery. With ongoing layoffs, entrepreneurship has never been viewed so favorably. You don’t have to have the “big idea”. You don’t have to have industry experience. You don’t need a million bucks. Just bring your can-do attitude, your willingness to being coached and your ability to execute a business model and you could be a good fit for a franchise.

In this webinar, Franchise Consultant, Diane Pleuss, will highlight the often-overlooked opportunities that exist in franchise business ownership in today’s economic climate. Factors that impact business opportunities are a recovering economy, strong stock market, better access to funding and lower loan rates.

The pandemic made individuals of all ages question the path they are on. If you are looking for better, more fulfilling business opportunities, this webinar is for you.

In this webinar we’ll not only discuss the basics of franchising, but also zero in on:

  • The “essential” industries (it’s more than drive-throughs)
  • Funding options (rates are low and loans are available)
  • Lease incentives (more available properties & negotiable tenant improvements)
  • Pent-up demand (consumers have money to spend)
  • “Hot” categories (that are also pandemic resistant)
  • Manager-run options (for diversification)

We will also leave time for your questions;.
