Are you an entrepreneur at heart, but have yet to come up with that million dollar idea and are looking for another way to get into business ownership? Of the three ways to get into owning a business, franchising might be the most well known but least utilized. We see franchises every day. We eat at them. They service our vehicles. They give us fun activities. They help our aging parents.

Join us as we walk through the franchising. In this course we’ll cover:

  • Define what franchises are
  • Analyze advantages and disadvantages
  • Discover how to fund a franchise
  • Provide tools to find an opportunity that best fits you
  • Best practices in succeeding

We’ll also hear from active operators of franchises to learn why they chose the opportunity they chose and their biggest challenges.

PRESENTER: Jason Nitschke – Vice President, Great Falls Development Authority; Regional Director, Great Falls area Small Business Development Center
