For many new franchisors, franchising represents an entirely new landscape. Your prior business experience does little to illuminate a path in franchising. You can’t rely on your instincts and street smarts to guide you, because franchising involves a complicated web of relationships that all need to be in tune at the same time. Even if you have a superior product or service that distinguishes your brand from the competition, and makes money, you still need to have great relationships with franchisees, vendors, the community, state regulators and customers to truly succeed.

Successful franchisors know that franchising is based on the execution of a strategy, not the accidental discovery of the right path. The Springboard Event gives you a fighting chance, by getting to you early, with industry best practices. We take a holistic approach to the many disciplines that create a successful franchisor. You will receive valuable, actionable advice from experienced franchise founders who have been in your shoes, taken their lumps and went on to create successful franchise systems.

Our promise: Your franchise IQ will be significantly increased or a Philly Cheese Steak is on us.

What an inspirational, idea-packed and investment-worthy event for anyone involved with emerging (and re-emerging) franchisors. So much collaborative energy, sharing and camaraderie made this the BEST SPRINGBOARD EVER!

Dan Durney

Assisting Hands Home Care

This event brings together some of the best minds in the franchise category with a willingness to share their triumphs and tragedies in their careers. Often, it's easy to fall into a trap as an emerging brand. The sharing of "here is what I learned when I was an emerging brand" can mean the difference between failure and success.

This event is a must for all emerging and re-emerging brands. Come learn from those that have been there and done it before so you fully understand the franchise journey.

Always a great event and I believe it is extremely valuable for an emerging franchise. The best way for an emerging franchisor to really get valuable info is through networking with other franchisors who have been around a while.

I would recommend this event to anyone in franchising. If you're just starting out, there is a LOT of great content on a wide variety of topics. If you've been in franchising for a while, this event is great for networking and learning about changes in franchising.

The Springboard Event in Philadelphia is hands-down the best resource in franchising. Whether you're a franchisee, a franchisor, an emerging brand, or one that's been around for 50 years, you'll learn something new at every turn.
