Business Workshop: Buying a Franchise

Thursday, October 10, 2019

Franchise ownership is one of the fastest growing segments of business ownership. Before you buy a franchise, attend this interactive session presented by East Bay SCORE to gain a better understanding of how franchising works and if it’s the right option for you.

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
This workshop is within walking distance from 12th Street/Oakland City Center BART Station.

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.
