014 Is a Franchise Right for You_ What Can You Learn From Franchising_ With Faizun Kamal - Web and BeyondCast - YouTube

On today’s episode, we are going to be talking about franchising and how it fits into the economic development landscape. Franchising is a form of small business ownership that doesn’t get a lot of attention by economic development agencies around the States and I think it could use a bit of love. So, hopefully this will spark some conversations in the community. As well, we will discuss what it takes to start a franchise, some tips for picking the right franchise for you and your local community, and what are some of the most exciting franchises to invest in if you wanted to start a business.
