Are you looking for ways to revitalize your Franchise Development Program? You are not alone. Many franchisors are looking for ways to restructure or supplement existing franchise sales and development programs in order to grow their business.

Come hear from leading franchise executives offering development solutions and best practices based on real world scenarios. Everyone wants to grow their business, but the recent difficulties in the marketplace have forced franchise systems to be more creative in attracting franchise candidates. IFA's Franchise Development Seminars are smaller, more interactive programs designed for franchise development professionals to hear from experts on the latest trends and best practices.

If you want to reinvigorate your recruitment process in 2017 there is no better way to learn how to do that, and do it successfully, than by attending our seminar. Come gain a wealth of knowledge and network with key contacts so you can implement a franchise development program that is right for your system’s growth in 2017 and beyond.

 

NEW FOR 2017!

Your franchise sales team is one of your greatest assets for the brand. They are the first touch point that new franchisees have with your brand, and they set the tone for all interactions that follow. Whether you are a new, emerging or well-established brand, you will always be focused on development and how to continuously improve. FranConnect has partnered with IFA to develop the Franchise Development Excellence Workshop - a hands-on workshop that will provide you with the information and tools you need to create and execute a winning sales strategy. 

The Franchise Development Excellence workshop will be hosted on May 17, 2017 at The Westin Buckhead in Atlanta, GA, and September 19, 2017 at The Highland Dallas in Dallas, TX - the day before each Franchise Development Seminar. This Certified Franchise Executive (CFE) course curriculum was created using the hard data for sales performance metrics of 480 franchise brands within the FranConnect franchise sales system. 

Register for both the Franchise Development Excellence Workshop and the Franchise Development Seminar together, and recieved a $100 discount! Registartion prices can be found in the above brochure and at the above registartion link. 

More information on the Franchise Development Excellence Workshop will be available soon!
