OUR MISSION

The mission of Franchise Update Media is, and always has been, to help all stakeholders in franchising improve and grow their businesses. Over the years, we have grown and evolved how we deliver on that promise.


OUR FOCUS

The focus of Franchise Update Media is to provide an environment where customers can learn, find new business opportunities, network and be inspired by their peers. From our conferences with face-to-face contact to our published resources and our extensive online programs, we provide our customers with tools to further educate themselves, at their convenience.


WHY WE'RE THE EXPERTS.

When you've been in franchising for over 30 years, you learn a thing or two. We've learned a lot, which is why we make it easy for you to attract the right people for your business:

  • Franchise opportunity seekers look for two pieces of information – how to get started in franchising and what franchise brand is right for them.
  • Multi-unit franchisees come to us as the industry resource for content, programs, curriculum and new brands to help them learn, grow, and be inspired.
  • Suppliers in almost every industry look to us when they want to put their services in front of franchisors, franchisees, and franchise prospects.
  • Ready to take your franchise overseas? Talk to us about international opportunities, including our new European conference.

Advisory board power.

For each individual conference, we assemble and work with an Advisory Board of franchising leaders and influencers to develop relevant and timely content each and every year. The Advisory Board involvement and our commitment to quality content is what makes our conferences the must-attend events in franchising.
