What is a great match for one person might be the worst choice for another. This event will allow those people who have always had a desire to own their own business but fear the unknown the opportunity to take a look at several franchises at one time while also having access to funding options and the ability to meet with many organizations that can help you on the way to business ownership all in one place.”
