Vienna, VA, April 14, 2012 --(PR.com)--

What:

FranNet of Virginia is hosting its third biannual Capital Area Franchise Fair to help prospective entrepreneurs explore a variety of franchise options, understand the franchise model, and make informed decisions that will help them achieve their business and personal goals.

When:

May 15, 2012, 12:30pm- 5:00pm

Where:

The Tower Club

Vienna, VA

Why:

FranNet of Virginia—in partnership with SCORE and Community Business Partnership—is sponsoring a series of workshops and a Resource Fair to educate aspiring entrepreneurs about some of the non-conventional options in franchising. Most people equate franchise with “fast food;” but franchises are available in over 90 different industries, many of which require fewer hours and far less start-up funds while generating greater profits than food businesses. The Capital Area Franchise Fair will help attendees explore different options and learn about navigating the franchise research and ownership process.

Who:

  • Heather Rosen, a FranNet of Virginia franchise consultant and coach who helps people identify the right franchise based on skill sets, financial and lifestyle goals, budget, and financial capabilities
  • Lenders and alternative financing companies
  • Franchise lawyers
  • SCORE counselors
  • Women’s Business Center and Small Business Development Center counselors
  • Representatives of select national and international franchise companies
