Franchising as a Career, an Investment, or Both?

February 3 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm


Is starting a business for you? Is a franchised business the best option?

Learn how franchising can provide a desirable alternative to traditional employment by reducing the risk of ownership to an acceptable level through proven business systems, comprehensive training, and ongoing support. In this presentation we’ll cover:

  • Basic information on franchising, including the range of industry categories, investment levels, and fees
  • Current trends in franchising including franchise sectors that are thriving, even in the pandemic
  • Common misconceptions about franchising
  • The pro’s and con’s of owning a franchise
  • Owning a franchise on a full-time basis vs. a part-time basis (semi-absentee ownership)
  • A strategic approach to safely researching and selecting the right franchise and mistakes to avoid

This workshop is being presented by Dan Aronoff. Dan has over 25 years of business experience working for both small and large companies, most notably in the human resources arena. He had the opportunity to work with Exxon Corporation, Kraft Foods, Kendle International (a pharmaceutical clinical trials organization) and his family’s business, Goldner Associates, which is an advertising specialties company. In 2005 he fulfilled a lifelong dream of entrepreneurship by becoming a franchisee with FranNet. FranNet offers a no-cost franchise consulting service matching individual goals, skills and financial qualifications with carefully screened franchise opportunities.
