Titus Center for Franchising Advisory Board Adds 8 companies and 17 members


Titus Center for Franchising at Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, Florida, has added 8 companies and 17 members to its Advisory Board. The board now includes 72 companies and 93 franchise executives.

“Franchising is experiencing a surge of interest not only from prospective franchisees and franchisors, but from people who have been part of the franchise community for many years,” commented Dr. John P. Hayes, CFE, the university’s Chair for Franchise Leadership. “Starting with the popularity of our Selling Franchises Summit in January, we have received a record number of individuals asking to join our Advisory Board, for which we are extremely grateful.” Board members provide guidance for the Titus Center’s academic programs, as well as mentoring for students. Board dues help support the center’s operating budget.

More than 100 students have registered for a franchise course since the Titus Center opened in the Fall of 2017. More than 50 students have earned a Concentration in Franchising. Nearly 70 students are currently studying franchising at PBA. Six graduates have become franchisees and a dozen are employees of franchise companies.

Titus Center Advisory Board membership is open to companies and franchise executives that want to support franchise education. The board meets twice annually on the PBA campus. The next meeting will be Nov. 15, 2023. Guests are welcome. More information is available at TitusCenter.com.
