Titus Chair for Franchise Leadership and director of the new Titus Center for Franchising, Dr. John P. Hayes will be speaking at the Mandel PUblic Library in downtown West Palm Beach on the "A to Z's of Buying a Franchise" on Tuesday, Oct. 10 from 6 - 8 p.m.
A little bit about Dr. Hayes' topic:
If you're looking for a no-nonsense, cut-to-the-quick, show me how to evaluate franchises so that I can buy one that's right for me . . . this is the workshop you need. And it's the only one you'll need! It's taught by John P. Hayes, PhD, a 30-year franchise veteran who has been both a franchisee and a franchisor. Dr. Hayes has worked with 100 different franchise systems as a consultant and he has written extensively about the topic. He has been teaching this seminar for nearly 20 years to thousands of individuals, many of whom have successfully purchased franchises. If you hope to become a successful franchisee, get started with confidence by participating in this workshop.
You will learn the basic information about franchising but glean an in-depth knowledge through the experiences of Dr. Hayes who will help you understand how to interpret and use the Franchise Disclosure Document to discover reliable information about the performance and viability of any franchise, how to evaluate the franchisor's operating system and determine if you and your intended market are compatible with the system, the pros and cons of franchising, the fees required by franchisors, the facts about territorial and product restrictions, how to raise money to invest in a franchise, and much, much more.
This is the perfect workshop for people who are just getting started with their research as well as those who are close to making a decision to buy a franchise. Questions will be answered throughout the workshop.
