The franchising industry’s premier annual event will include a course specifically designed for prospective and existing veteran franchisees.
The buzz surrounding the International Franchise Association’s annual convention is building at rapid rates. Between January 29 and February 1, the industry’s leaders will gather in Las Vegas to share best practices, swap war stories, establish key relationships and learn from one another as part of a collective effort to move franchising forward.
#IFA2017 is filled with a seemingly unending list of can’t miss presentations, roundtables and super sessions. This year, one of those sessions is specifically designed for veteran franchisees and veterans with a strong entrepreneurial drive who are potentially interested in franchise ownership. The course, titled “Promoting Veteran-Owned Franchises,” is linked to the IFA’s ongoing VetFran program that works to provide access and opportunities in franchising to military veterans and their families.
The VetFran course will take place on Tuesday, January 31 between 10:15 and 11:45 am. The panel of experts speaking as a part of the course include Sport Clips CEO Gordon Logan, The Rosie Network Founder Stephanie Brown, Grease Monkey International’s Ralph Yarusso, CFE, and Misty Stutsman, who acts as the Director of the Center of Excellence for Veteran Entrepreneurship.
