Franchise Update Media Group's Multi-Unit Franchising Conference on Track to Set New Attendance Record

Business Builders of Main Street America Prepare for Vegas Summit


SAN JOSE, Calif., March 31, 2009 - Franchise Update Media Group (FUMG), the leading industry resource for franchise development, today announced that attendance for the 8th Annual Multi-Unit Franchising Conference is on track to set a new attendance record. The conference is April 15-17, 2009 at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.

"The attendees at our conference are the business builders of Main Street America, generating $1 billion in annual revenues," said Therese Thilgen, president of FUMG. "We are very excited to announce that 68 percent of our multi-unit attendees are seeking to add more brands. Forty-seven percent of them generate revenues of $10 million and greater, and 25 percent operate multi-unit franchises that generate revenue of $30 million or greater."

This year's conference theme is "Playing to Win" and provides a unique opportunity for multi-unit franchisees to network, gain insight into successful growth strategies during tough economic times, and sharpen their leadership skills through workshops, roundtable discussion and keynote speakers. The conference program, workshop, and roundtable discussion topics were developed by a think tank of experienced multi-unit franchisees in the food, retail and service industries, and address the pressing business issues facing the industry today.

"The annual Multi-Unit Franchising Conference, still the only conference exclusively focused on multi-unit franchising, is one of the most valuable events I make time to attend," said Gary Grace, 2009 conference chairman and multi-unit franchisee for Supercuts and Cost Cutters. "The conference aims to help multi-unit franchisees and franchisors elevate their thinking and improve their game at a time when every advantage counts. Even during difficult economic conditions there are companies that grow and generate value faster than their competitors. They don't just survive, they thrive."
