Multi-Unit franchising is the fastest-growing sector in the industry
Franchise Update Media Group (FUMG) has announced that it is sponsoring the 8th Annual Multi-Unit Franchising Conference which is being held April 15-17, 2009 at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. According to the information provided, this is the only conference in the country with an exclusive focus on multi-unit franchising, the fastest-growing sector in the industry, where franchisors can meet and network with successful multi-unit franchisees looking for new opportunities.
“This event is the most exclusive multi-unit franchisee gathering in the nation, and provides the ideal venue for franchisors to find out what these mega business-builders are looking for in a franchise organization, and what matters to them today,” said Therese Thilgen, president of FUMG. “During the breakout sessions, franchisors will learn specific actions they can take to help them build better, stronger and more profitable multi-franchise organizations, and they will also gain insights into how they can best prepare for explosive growth.”
Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn from Herman Cain and Russ Umphenour, two of this year’s keynote speakers. Both men were successful multi-unit franchisees who became industry-leading franchisors, and they will share their valuable perspectives from both sides of the business.
