Originally aired Apr 12, 2021

What does any good franchise organization recipe call for? Franchisees—the meat and potatoes of your business. Franchisees are fundamentally important to the foundation of your franchise locations. Not only do these owners ensure that your franchises are running smoothly, but they also help you expand your business. 

Join us for the third episode of our four-part How To Grow Your Business Through Franchising webinar series to learn all about the process of finding your franchise owners. Once again, Jason Feifer, the editor in chief of Entrepreneur, will sit down with our experts, Rick Grossmann and Rob Gandley, who have 30 years of franchising experience. Together, they’ll discuss:

  • What happens during the recruiting and on-boarding phase of the franchising process
  • How the first franchisees you hire will be different from franchisees who sign on at a later time
  • Where your focus should be during this stage of the process
  • How to identify the ideal franchisee candidate
