“This is arguably the most beneficial event I’ve been to in my 12+ years of franchising! Incredibly well organized with speakers and participants that were truly experts in their field. If I had to recommend one franchise event during the year to attend, this would be it.”
Ryan Combe, Better Way Franchise Group
“I didn’t know what to expect, as our contracted sales team told us that we had to attend. On their recommendation, we attended the 2018 Springboard Conference. I was amazed at the number of companies and executives that were in attendance and how open and willing they were to share what they did right on their journey as well as what they did wrong, so that we may avoid the mistakes that they made. It is a great conference and I am already looking forward to returning.”
Fire & Rice Franchising

“Springboard is the single best conference for new and emerging franchisors to accelerate their growth through the learning curve.”
Jack Rickenbach, Aranco Productions

“One of the best conferences I have ever attended. Well thought out content.”
Dawn Uremovich

“I was able to make many valuable face-to-face contacts and gained a ton of knowledge in formal sessions as well as informal networking.”
Jason Blough, Solderfit

“I have attended many many conferences in my career, and this one was hands-down the best in terms of networking and learning. Guards are down and the conversations that I had were so much more valuable than at any other educational forum I’ve attended. Thank you for providing such a great atmosphere for growth!”
Jennifer, Out Of The Box Technology

“By far top two conferences of the year based on takeaway knowledge and fun factor. It is great to be a part of a group that cares about the industry so much as to share their knowledge with all the newcomers. As JFK said, “The rising tide lifts all the boats.”
Dan Collins I ❤Mac & Cheese

“As a NEW Franchisor, I found myself in need of advice and didn’t have a place to turn, I discovered SpringBoard online and registered for the conference. It was amazing, attending rigorous training sessions, seated side by side with folks who have already achieved success in franchising, and were all so willing to share. Highly recommend! The networking opportunities were stellar, the food fabulous and the venues for the networking events were held in local businesses or locations and it helped me feel like I was exploring Philly, while I was out on business!”

“Springboard is a must-attend event for Emerging and re-Emerging brands. Frankly, all Franchisors would receive great value.”
Keith Gerson, FranConnect

“The entire event was first class and the information exchange and new knowledge gained was well worth the time and money.”
Bob Vearling, 23 Year Franchise Veteran

“Springboard is the one ‘must attend’ for emerging Franchisors. The content, networking and focus of the session is remarkable and will have a lasting positive impact on you and your organization moving forward.”
Ed Kelley

“This was certainly one of the best conferences I have attended. It was packed with high quality people, and the panelists were gracious and authentic in their stories and genuinely wanted to help emerging franchisors succeed.”
Greg Sausaman, Topper’s Craft Creamery

“Springboard is an event unlike any other. Nowhere else can you meet other franchisors, vendors, and mentors that are willing to help in any way possible. No topic or question is off-limits, you can get your toughest problems and most complicated questions resolved by just talking with other attendees.”
Dan Serfilippi, United Portraits

“Great conference. One of the best of the year for emerging franchises.”
Bruce Lane

I also met so many open, wonderful people. I was so amazed by the amount of information that people shared. I am very excited by all the connections I made there.”
Jenny Young, Brooklyn Robot Foundry

“It was a great mixture of learning and networking with top franchise executives. Best event I’ve attended in 2018!”
Crystal Lizama, CFE

“Springboard is by far the best event I attend each year and is a GREAT Value. Lane & Brad put in an incredible effort; it shows and its certainly appreciated by all.”
Paul Berman, CEO BirthdayPak



To go from feeling alone in the world of franchising for 13 years, to suddenly being immersed in the presence of hundreds of industry experts practically overnight, was the most amazing business experience of my life. I cannot thank the organizers and participants enough for making me feel so welcome and amongst friends. Truly a life-altering experience, and one which I hope to repeat annually!

Deck Rescue Franchising

I recommend this event for anyone in the industry, emerging or not. Not only is the educational content valuable and the panelists top notch, but the general atmosphere is electric. There is a literal buzz everywhere you go - people connecting and re-connecting. I love that this event doesn't take itself too seriously - able to have fun and work at the same time. True work-life balance!

I’ve been in franchising over 10 years and learn something new or take away a new piece of information at every event.

Springboard is a great event for emerging and established brands alike. For emerging brands or those new to franchising, it is a great opportunity to meet others that are in the same stage of growth as you and form those relationships early on. Additionally, you get to meet those more established in franchising who are more than happy to share anything you need. For franchise vets, it is an opportunity to give back and repay the favor that we all got at some point in our franchise career by helping the newcomers. In those conversations, you always learn new things as well. It is also a good time to connect with other established zors/zees/suppliers to share current challenges and help each other.

Ashley Mitchell

Streamline Brands

Springboard is always terrific! Which is why I always attend. I’ve been in franchising for 35 years…and always come away with tons of tangible takeaways and great news contacts. I also get to connect with old friends. This format at this Springboard was the best yet. Less monologue and more dialogue than ever before. I’m happy to speak, but I learn something new when I listen…and get to interact with others.

BrandONE Franchise Development

Springboard is the perfect conference for every emerging franchisor! Small enough to meet and start friendships with peers at a similar stage of development, and large enough to capture vision from brands who are miles ahead. This conference is exactly what we were looking for to grow our small brand to the next level!

We highly recommend Springboard to our clients. Why go at it alone when you can get advice and answers from experienced franchise pros? Springboard can help get your franchise into the winner's circle.

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.

Greg Sausaman

Topper's Craft Creamery

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.

Barry Falcon

iFranchise Group

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.

Gary Findley

Stellar Brands

I don't know why I put off going for so long. Loved the conference and learned a lot!

Matthew Hunt

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.

Denise Radcliff


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.

Fantastic event...content, staff and networking was amazing. Terrific value.

This was my first year attending and it will not be my last! The content was great, the attendees were awesome and there were many opportunities to network. There was such great energy throughout the entire conference.
