Let's Make A Deal: 2014 Multi-Unit Franchising Conference weeks away
Franchisees looking to grow, expand, or simply up their game would do well to check out Franchise Update Media's upcoming 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 - especially those interested in discovering new concepts and making new deals. It's become one of the premiere meeting places for franchisees, franchisors, and allied industry (see the current list of franchisor sponsors and exhibitors here.)
This year's event will feature two major keynote speakers. First is John C. Maxwell, an internationally renowned leadership expert, coach, and author with more than 22 million books sold. Dr. Maxwell founded The John Maxwell Company and EQUIP, organizations that have trained more than 5 million leaders in 185 countries. Second is JB Bernstein, legendary sports agent and marketing pioneer and inspiration for the upcoming Disney film "Million Dollar Arm." This 25-plus year veteran of the consumer goods and sports marketing industries knows what it takes to get positive results.
Many multi-unit franchisees continue to return to this conference because of the ROI they receive. Here's what three of them had to say:
"The success and depth of knowledge of fellow attendees motivates me more than any other conference I attend."
Grant Simon, President, Simon Clips (Great Clips, Smoothie King)
"A great place to find solutions to the challenges we face as multi-unit franchisees."
Robert Branca Jr., President, JLC (Dunkin' Donuts, Baskin-Robbins)
"The Multi-Unit Franchising Conference is an absolute must attend for people who are serious about their business and franchising. This is by far the most productive conference that I go to."
John Hotchkiss, Partner, L&M Restaurant Group (Little Caesar's, Firehouse Subs)
