Franchise Ownership as a Career Alternative, Investment, or Both

Springfield’s Scibelli Enterprise Center
1 Federal Street Bldg. 101
Springfield, MA 01105


Event reaches out to Veterans, Displaced Executives-in-Transition, Aspiring Entrepreneurs and Others

Returning from active duty to civilian life, veterans are increasingly contemplating franchised business ownership at the encouragement of the franchising industry and Small Business Administration. The same is true of executives-in-transition who are in need of viable career alternatives in an otherwise stagnant traditional job market.

Semi-retirees, and corporate refugees are looking at franchising as well. So too are parents of college /MBA grads, who are teaming more and more with their children on franchised business ventures.

Leading small business experts will convene for a free roundtable forum, to inform opportunity-seekers who are both serious and curious about franchising. This panel-format event will focus on the pros and cons of owning a franchise, its costs, risks, and best practices – as well as research, validation, and selection processes.

Panelists will include Jeffrey I. Fialky – Associate, Bacon Wilson P.C.
