Franchise ownership is one of the fastest growing segments of business ownership, and with good reason. It is affordable, offers a proven method of success, allows for easy entry, and provides options for a variety of backgrounds and skill levels.

The Small Business Development Center at West Texas A&M University is holding a workshop Tuesday, June 30, from 2:30 to 5:00 p.m. in Amarillo that will include a hands-on look at an actual franchise disclosure document. The document discloses extensive information about the franchisor and is intended to give you enough information to make an educated decision regarding your investment.

Key areas include initial franchise fees and expenses, obligations of the franchisor and franchisee, territory restrictions, renewal and termination, franchisor financial statements, plus much more.

Other session highlights are: Franchising overview; Pros and cons of franchising; An up-close look at an actual Franchise Disclosure Document; Tips for estimating income potential; Franchise fees; How to find the right franchise; Types of franchises; and Financing options.

Stephen Maeker, Senior Franchise Consultant, MBA, will be the special guest for the session. For more information call 372-5151.
