Texas Entrepreneurs to Connect with Top Brands at Franchise Expo Houston
Nation’s leading franchise brands expanding in Lone Star State amid major business boom
September 27, 2022 // Franchising.com // HOUSTON, Texas - Those looking to be in business for themselves, but not necessarily by themselves, have their latest chance to connect with top franchise brands during Franchise Expo Houston.
Hosted by MFV Expositions and sponsored by the International Franchise Association, Franchise Expo Houston will offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to meet with more than 100 exciting franchise opportunities under one roof October 7-8 at the NRG Center.
“So many leaders in the franchise brands we work with say they’re targeting Texas and the surrounding region for the next phase of their expansion,” said MFV President Sheila Fischer. “That means there are opportunities for local entrepreneurs to have extremely valuable conversations about how franchising can further their career. They can meet one-on-one with brands of all industries and investment levels, learn from experts, and make an informed decision for their financial journey.”
Just months after welcoming a global array of brands and entrepreneurs at the International Franchise Expo in New York City, MFV Expositions is continuing its momentum out of Florida at Franchise Expo South, where roughly 175 brands met with entrepreneurs in Florida and nearby regions in early September.
Much like those events, Franchise Expo Houston is also building an impressive roster of brands who want to meet the deep, diverse pool of qualified business prospects in the Lone Star State and throughout the region. Texas is home to 3 million small businesses, according to the US Small Business Administration, with its economy outpacing the national growth rate at the end of 2021.
Franchise Expo Houston is once again proud to offer those motivated entrepreneurs an opportunity to build on that strong foundation with top names in franchising such as Zaxby’s, Ace Hardware, Sky Zone, and many more. Franchising is experiencing major growth in recent years, with thousands of franchise companies offering proven, successful concepts that help entrepreneurs enter business ownership. Many franchisors have third-party relationships with lenders or offer some in-house financing, making franchise ownership a possibility for even more people.
In addition to finding the perfect franchising fit for their lifestyle and investment level, attendees can take advantage of the industry-leading educational sessions covering a wide range of topics. Some of the free sessions are generalized such as, “Franchising 101,” while others such as, “How Women Can Be Successful in Today’s Franchise Marketplace,” provide more targeted advice. In all, Franchise Expo Houston offers valuable information to entrepreneurs at every level of expertise.
Interested entrepreneurs and business owners can learn more at Franchise Expo Houston, and while there is a $10 registration fee, those who register with code PRH will receive free admission.
