“My # 1 bit of advice for an emerging franchisor is to spend as much time and money on figuring out how to sell franchises as they possibly can. I rarely find a franchisor who gets this part of franchising.”

It is usually a combination of insufficient capital, a lack of franchise sales systems and know-how, a need for the right onboarding and support systems to set their franchisees up for success, and sometimes a lack of general franchising knowledge.


Let’s face it: Franchising is hard. Growing through franchise sales is hard. Sustaining that growth…might be even harder….


Fortunately, the Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) community has a strong network of franchisors who are ready and willing to share their experience and advice to help emerging franchisors through the CFA’s Smart Growth for Emerging Franchisors virtual conference!


Attending Smart Growth for Emerging Franchisors will provide you with the knowledge you need to avoid costly mistakes and best position your franchise system for rapid, successful, and sustainable growth.


Smart Growth for Emerging Franchisors is designed for franchisors, CEOs, COOs, Presidents, concept creators, franchise operations executives, franchise development executives, franchise marketers, franchise relations specialists and anyone looking to take their brands to the next level of sustained expansion!
