Franchising: A Business Model for the Times

A few weeks ago — in BusinessCast Podcast #94 – Franchising for Entrepreneurs, Robert and I had a lively discussion with Lorraine McLachlan, President and CEO of the Canadian Franchise Association (www.cfa). We wanted to get a clear sense of the role that franchising can play for current and future entrepreneurs. And, Lorraine provided us some keen insights and plenty of enthusiasm!

To help you decide if/how you can leverage this powerful business model, the CFA undertakes some powerful research. And, recently, they released some news on the latest franchising trends . Given the current state of the economy, it turns out that this may be the best time in years to explore franchises — whether you’re a potential franchisee or franchisor.

Robert and I will be at the Franchise Show on February 21st and we’ll bring you the real scoop from franchisors, franchisees and other entrepreneurs just like you who are wondering how to tap into the wealth of franchising experience, this tried-and-true model and the CFA.
