LOUISVILLE, Ky., - Oct. 28, 2016 // PRNewswire // - Despite supporting more than 7.6 million direct jobs nationwide and providing $674.3 billion in economic output, according to the International Franchise Association, franchising is most often associated with fast food restaurant chains. To shed light on this fast-growing, job-creating industry, FranNet, a consulting firm that helps place aspiring entrepreneurs with franchise opportunities, released "More Than Just French Fries," a book bringing together the greatest minds in franchising to offer insight on how to succeed in life and business.
The book, featuring a foreword by FranNet CEO Jania Bailey, was released on Amazon.com on October 14th and is already ranked as a best selling book in the Small Business section. It provides education and information to anyone looking to go into business for themselves. Industry thought leaders, including franchise owners, consultants and suppliers are featured in the book.
"Franchising is about so much more than just fast food. People often forget that franchising provides a path for aspiring entrepreneurs to achieve the American Dream of business ownership while remaining a steady driver of our economy," said Jania Bailey, CEO of FranNet. "The collective knowledge and experience of our contributors is extremely valuable to anyone who is considering becoming a business owner, or if you are already in business, the wisdom in this book can help you expand and boost your bottom line."
Included in this rare collection of business insights are business notables, including former NBA player and franchisee George Tinsley; "Undercover Boss" TV star Steve Greenbaum; public relations expert and chief brand strategist of No Limit Agency, Nick Powills; the CEO of SCORE, one of the largest advisory groups in the USA, Ken Yancey; and Rocco Fiorentino, CEO of Benetrends, one the nation's most successful business funding organizations. FranNet consultants also contribute insight to the book, including Cindy Rayfield, Jose Torres, Kenny Rose, Pat Deering, Leslie Kuban, Heather Rosen, Blair Nicol, Sarah Brown and Chuck Prenevost.
The book focuses on topics including what it takes to become satisfied in business and in life; how the "Disney principle"" can set you head and shoulders above the competition; how to impact your community through business, how diversity can be a niche you dominate; why millennials are the future of franchising; the competitive edge you have as a woman business owner; why experience isn't necessary to become your own boss; and how to find success where you least expect it.
