 "A Business Opportunity for Millennials - Thu., Apr. 19th

  • Thursday, April 19, 2018 | 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
  • Distracted, self-absorbed, entitled. Terms often used to describe the millennial generation. For those who were born between the years 1981-1997, you can toss aside all the stereotypes you've heard about the millennial because they're not true. The largest living generation boasts a population of more than 75 million and, in two short years (2018), will have greater spending power than the boomer generation.
  • Millennials are leaving traditional employment behind and embarking on entrepreneurialism like never seen before. According to a recent study, 54% of millennials either want to start a business or already have started one, and 90% think being an entrepreneur means having a certain mindset rather than starting a company.
  • In a recent Deloitte poll, 70 percent of millennials who said they'd reject traditional business to work independently, are finding opportunities in business services, commercial cleaning, and beauty salons, just to name a few of the popular choices.
  • And with well-intentioned and well-motivated millennials looking to business ownership, a franchise business fits their opportunity very well. The franchise company provides the training, support and game plan, while the millennial provides the horsepower and capable financing to complete the picture.
  • But which business should a millennial specifically invest in? Your FranNet consultant is an expert at matching people to their ideal business. Among many things, we consider a person's budget, lifestyle, and goals to combine with a proprietary and scientific matching process that enables us to see opportunities you would never see on your own.
  • Join us for this informative webinar to learn all about franchising and how FranNet can help you become the next successful millennial entrepreneur.

 "Lunch & Learn Webinar: Michigan-based, globally inspired franchise with unique beverage offerings" - Fri. Apr. 27th

  • Friday, April 27, 2018 | 12:15 PM to 12:45 PM
  • The Michigan couple who founded this established a local favorite gathering place 25 years ago have teamed up with a Michigan-based franchise growth firm to spread the brand across the nation. This franchise is currently a ground-floor opportunity in a $40 billion industry with nearly 10% annual growth and availability in most of the state. However, we expect Michigan territories to sell out early. You don't want to miss this one!
  • You'll hear a 30-minute online preview of this franchise at 12:15 p.m. ET, Friday, April 27. Unique, globally inspired artisanal drinks made with fresh, natural, locally sourced ingredients, paired with local ownership focused on community sets this model apart from the industry, which is more fragmented than you might expect.
  • Here's why I'm excited about this franchise:
    • The business provides a product that 83% of Americans consume multiple times daily.
    • Stores open in Michigan/planned in 12 other states.
    • This unique coffee & tea shop features hand-crafted, artisanal drinks with a limited food menu for all day-parts.
    • The business differentiates itself based on quality, fresh, all natural products - primarily whole foods - that are locally sourced and globally inspired.
    • Simpler business model - no cooks, kitchen or wait staff.
    • Affordable luxury to a loyal and diverse community of guests who frequent the locations again and again.
    • Atmosphere is an upscale, relaxed environment with deep community connections.
    • The venue provides opportunities for local events tied to the community.
    • The model is designed for urban, university and suburban settings, as well as non-traditional, shared and smaller footprint spaces.
    • Surprisingly fragmented market. The largest competitor does not have a local franchise ownership model and has only 1/3 of the market.
  • Ideal Candidate:
    • Individual or couple who recognizes growth of this industry.
    • Desire to connect to their community to drive a high level of engagement with employees and customers for the ultimate guest experience.
    • People-focused, customer-service oriented with business acumen.
    • Food and beverage experience not necessary due to simplicity of business model.
    • Keep your job and operate this as a semi-absentee multi-unit or single-unit business.
    • Or, be the face of the business in your community and run the day-to-day operation.
    • Ability to invest $130K of their own assets and have a $500K net worth.?
