Master franchise conferences in Cologne and Munich
Franchise Pool International (FPI), an initiative set up by the German Franchise Association (DFV), is holding two master franchise conferences in Germany in November: on 14.11.2006 in Munich and on 16.11.2006 in Cologne.
Those participating in the conference will not only have the opportunity to learn more about master franchising but will also be able to meet some franchise systems which are currently looking for partners in Germany. Master partners will be talking about their experiences and experts will also be on hand to give advice on such matters as financing and tax. The conference, which is free of charge, is targeted at people interested in taking on a master licence for Germany or other German-speaking regions. Further information can be found at www.franchisepool.org.
Franchise Pool International supports German franchise companies to expand abroad as well as foreign companies to launch their systems in Germany. Franchise Pool International acts as a mediator between investors and franchise systems. Thanks to its franchise know-how, Franchise Pool International is able to support its customers to successfully transfer their networks to foreign markets. This often means adjusting the concept to suit the different national situations. Other hurdles include legal regulations which can differ greatly from one country to another. Franchise Pool International is run by Rolf G. Kirst who is also a board member of the DFV.
