FranNet to Host Entrepreneurial Workshop for Budding Franchisees

Burnaby Based Workshop to Support Growing Demand for Franchise Opportunities

VANCOUVER, BC - (Marketwired - February 11, 2016) - FranNet, one of Canada's leader Franchise Brokerage and Advisory Groups, is hosting a one day workshop designed to support local entrepreneurs interested in alternative forms of revenue. Potential franchisees will be given the opportunity to explore new business opportunities, speak with successful entrepreneurs and learn about the resources available for starting a small business in British Columbia.

In recent years, the franchise model has become a sought after source of revenue for all ages of professionals. According to a recent study by IHS Economics, the overall economic output of the franchise industry is expected to jump 5.8% to $944 billion -- the fastest pace since before the Great Recession.

"During an economic recession, we often see a spike in interest in franchising opportunities," said Grant Bullington with FranNet. "Many franchises can showcase their strong financial returns even during downturns in the economy. It's that type of resilience, coupled with many professionals looking for alternative sources of income that drives and increases interest in franchised businesses."

Designed as more than just a business expo, each session has been created to allow interested entrepreneurs to engage with potential franchisors, open networking, presentations and educational seminars for starting a small business. Franchise opportunities range from anywhere from a fully hands on business, to semi-absentee or manager-run operation.

The FranNet 2016 event will be held at the Delta Burnaby Hotel and Conference Centre on Wednesday, February 17th. Two sessions are open to the public from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm and 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. More information can be found here:  [https://frannetwesterncanada.leadpages.co/feb17/].
