Modeled after the traditional Speed Dating concept, speed-dating allows you to spend 10 uninterrupted minutes with each participating franchise concept representative. Use this valuable time to gain
a deeper understanding of the concept being presented. Once the Speed Fran-Dating is complete, use the provided scorecard to note your interest level of each concept.
Expo staff will collect the scorecards and provide the Franchise Concept Representative with your contact information for ONLY the concepts you are interested in learning more about!
Prior to the expo, you will receive a brief questionnaire to complete. Based on your experience, financial situation and interests, you will be matched with concepts best suited for you. Your time is valuable and we want you to spend it expanding your knowledge of the concepts you are interested in! Franchise Concept Representatives will then treat you to dinner to discuss their concept to see if it would be a good fit for you!
