2014 Multi-Unit Franchising Conference: A Gold Mine for Deal-Making
If you're a franchisor looking for experienced, successful multi-unit franchisees, consider attending Franchise Update Media's 2014 Multi-Unit Franchising Conference (MUFC) next month, April 23-25 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The conference is dedicated to meeting the needs of multi-unit operators - including discovering new concepts and deal-making. That's why so many franchisors sign up as sponsors and exhibitors (see the current list of franchisor sponsors here.)
But don't take our word for it. Here are some thoughts from past franchisors about why they continue to attend, sponsor, and exhibit at this annual event:
"Our sponsorship resulted in two new deals last year."
Greg Vojnovic, Chief Development Officer, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen; 2014 Co-Platinum Sponsor
"Jersey Mike's Subs has been coming to Franchise Update Media's Multi-Unit Franchising Conference since 2008. With confidence, I can say that this event yields significant results for us year in and year out. Whether you are looking to expand your knowledge, network with top franchisees throughout the franchising world, or meet your next multi-unit franchisee, this event is a must-attend for franchisors and franchisees alike. They should rename the conference to 'How to Grow & Who to Grow With.'"
Brian Sommers, VP Franchise Development, Jersey Mike's; 2014 Co-Platinum Sponsor
"Listening to franchisees of all sizes from brands across the franchise industry has made me recognize the need to improve our franchisee training and support programs."
Madison Jobe, COO, Pizza Inn
