Want to know what the future of franchising holds? From Jan. 11-13, 2013, thousands of prospective franchisees from South Florida, Latin America and the Caribbean will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with industry-leading franchisors to discover their ideal investment opportunity at the 7th Annual Franchise Expo South on Miami Beach. Sponsored by the International Franchise Association, the Expo will be held at the Miami Beach Convention Center and features hundreds of the worldâ€™s leading franchise brands on the exhibit hall floor plus educational seminars and conferences that will examine the latest issues affecting the industry and further define the impact that franchising has on the economy.
â€œSouth Florida is a high value growth market for many concepts and also serves as the gateway to Latin America and the Caribbean,â€ said Tom Portesy, president of MFV Expositions, producers of Franchise Expo South. â€œFranchise businesses have created 1.1 million Florida jobs, while contributing $119 million to the stateâ€™s economy, demonstrating that franchising continues to have a significant impact on those who live and do business in the region.â€
Franchise Expo South is designed specifically to enable prospective franchisees to determine which types of businesses match their needs. The expo floor will feature hundreds of exhibitors from food to professional service franchises including McAlisterâ€™s Deli, Kiddie Academy, Sizzler USA, Inc., Sign-A-Rama, Cinnabon, EmbroidMe, and Wireless Zone, among other concepts.
