April 14, 2011 // Franchising.com // SOUTHBURY, Conn. – With an increasing number of individuals choosing to ride the wave of the economy's recovery through entrepreneurship, a "New Normal" has emerged. As part of their personal and professional discovery process in this new reality, Midwestern U.S. professionals seeking to become self sufficient or who have accepted the challenge of starting or buying their own business have the rare opportunity to see and hear firsthand from leading franchisors and business coaches at The Entrepreneur's Source's (TES) Midwest Showcase.
TES, the franchise industry's leading career and business coaching company, was created to help these promising entrepreneurs fulfill their dreams of being self-sufficient. The company will be hosting the Showcase on Friday, May 20, 2011 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, May 21 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Crown Plaza O'Hare Hotel, located at 5440 North River Road in Rosemont, Ill. The second in a series of four free, regional showcases throughout the United States, the Midwest Showcase gives budding entrepreneurs the opportunity to explore various business options that best fit their desired income, lifestyle, wealth and equity goals.
"Entrepreneurship will help fuel the economy's recovery, but with many promising would-be entrepreneurs getting bombarded with get-rich-quick schemes and other hard-sell pitches, it's no wonder that only a handful launch their own businesses," said Brian Miller, president and COO of FranchisEsource Brands International, The Entrepreneur's Source's parent company. "We want to remove barriers and make everyone's path to business ownership as smooth as possible. Franchising is a fertile ground for those who are seeking to be self employed."

Free seminars and educational materials will offer attendees relevant information about franchising in general and specific opportunities throughout the Midwest region. Plus, attendees can meet with representatives from some of the most prestigious franchise companies that have targeted the Midwestern United States for expansion.
