With so many different franchises for sale today, figuring out which franchise opportunity is the right business opportunity can be daunting and difficult to say the least.

- "Hot” trends for today's expanding economy.
- Franchise myths and misconceptions.
- “Where's the money?" Financing your new business.
- Average investment for franchises in the Bay Area.
- Strategies for finding the best business system for you and your family.
- How to perform the proper due diligence.
- Building a tangible asset with a franchise.
- …and more!

This free, must-attend event is for anyone who wants to:

- Explore franchise ownership
- Be your own boss
- Hear about financing options
- Build long-term equity
- Evaluate your potential to become a franchise


Bio: Brian Kuepper works alongside aspiring entrepreneurs to understand if business ownership is right for them. Brian graduated with a degree in Economics, and jumped right into the corporate world as most do. He immediately fell in love with small businesses and helped several start-ups grow. With a grandfather who successfully opened and ran a retail clothing store and a father who is a serial entrepreneurial, Brian knew owning a small business was his ultimate desire. He worked with FranNet of the Bay Area in early 2014 as a client looking to open his own franchise. During this process, the opportunity to join FranNet and help buyers find the “right” business came along, so Brian took it. He has found a passion for educating and consulting clients, and helping San Francisco Peninsula investors get into businesses and franchises that are right for them.​
