What You Need To Know Before Buying a Franchise

Thursday, January 24, 2019

Franchise ownership is one of the fastest growing segments of business ownership, and with good reason. It is affordable, offers a proven method of success, allows for easy entry, and provides options for a variety of backgrounds and skill levels. But before you take the plunge, attend this interactive session presented by SCORE East Bay and walk away with a better understanding of how franchising works and if it’s the right option for you. Led by Franchising Consultant: Diane Pleuss

You will learn and discuss:

  • What a franchise is and how it differs from ownership of an independent business
  • Critical factors in achieving success with a franchise
  • How to evaluate potential franchises and determine whether they are right for you
  • Costs of purchasing and operating a franchise, and potential sources of financing
  • Common franchise myths

We will, of course, also leave time for your questions.

Diane Pleuss  is a seasoned and caring franchise leader who conducts seminars on how to make an education-based decision with respect to buying a franchise. Her consulting services are free as she works with candidates nationwide.

Diane has an MBA and is currently finishing her first book on franchising .
