Francorp is teaming up with MarketCorp International to assist franchise companies in selling more franchise locations. Through their “Own Your Own Business Seminar Program” they are promoting a two-hour, 100 slide presentation that highlights the advantages and disadvantages of three ways to own a businessâ€”starting a business from scratch, buying an existing business or buying a franchise.
The first seminar will be held in Atlanta and is free to the public. The sessions will cover all critical components of running a business, such as advertising, taxes, licenses, employees, state and local laws, financing, sales, accounting, vendors, market trends and business statistics. The meeting will be held in a very prominent, professional hotel meeting room, which was not named.
Franchisors participating in the seminar will have their company highlighted and discussed in detail at the meeting and their marketing materials will be handed out at the end of the slide presentation. MarketCorp will then set up personal interviews with each attendee to discuss their franchise interests. The ultimate goal of the seminar is to match qualified buyers with franchisors, in a meeting at the franchisor’s headquarters. MarketCorp will assist in closing the sale, getting a franchise agreement signed and collecting the franchise fees. Participating franchisors will receive a list of all attendees.
