MSA Worldwide Announces the Franchising For Dummies Seminar Series to be held in the fall of 2011
Based on the highly successful book Franchising For Dummies®, the seminar series will provide prospective franchisors information they need to decide whether franchising is the right expansion strategy for their company. Business owners will gain an understanding of the franchise regulatory scheme in their country, the requirements for the proper design and development of a successful franchise system, the anticipated investment required and the steps necessary to complete the franchise development process.
While compliance with franchise laws is necessary for the development of a franchise system, it is not sufficient for new franchisors simply to meet the regulatory requirements of preparing and registering a disclosure document and franchise agreements. “In this economic climate, it is essential that a franchise program is structured as both marketable and sustainable. A successful program will also achieve the goal of replicating the brand experience in each location,” says Michael Seid, author of Franchising For Dummies® and Managing Director, MSA Worldwide.
“In addition to working with experienced franchise business advisors, selecting lawyers who understand both the business of franchising and how to integrate the company’s franchising strategy into the necessary legal documents is the one of most crucial decisions franchisors must make,” says Kay Ainsley, Managing Director of MSA Worldwide. “We are privileged to work with some of the most experienced lawyers of leading franchise law firms on this series.”
