What does a good recipe for a franchise organization require? Franchisees – your company's meat and potatoes. Franchisees are fundamental to starting your franchise locations. Not only will these owners ensure that your franchise runs smoothly, they will also help you grow your business.
Join us for the third installment of our four-part webinar series, "How to Grow Your Business Through Franchising", to learn all about the process of finding your franchisees. Jason Feifer, Editor-in-Chief of Entrepreneur, will sit down again with our experts Rick Grossmann and Rob Gandley, who have over 30 years of experience in franchising. Together they will discuss:
– What happens during the recruiting and onboarding phase of the franchising process?
– How the first franchisees you hire differ from franchisees who enroll at a later date
– Where should your focus be at this stage of the process?
– How to identify the ideal franchisee candidate
