Complements of The Franchise Industry – Over 120 Franchise Businesses on Display

ROSEMONT, Ill., May 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Do you see yourself as a business coach, in the senior care business, hair care or even lawn care?  If you are in career transition, or have always wanted to own your own business, your next career move might just be as a business owner of one of the nation’s most sought after franchise companies.

The Midwest Franchise and Business Exposition is one of the largest gatherings of franchise industry business models collectively under one roof with over 120 franchise concepts on display for aspiring business owners and people in career transition to begin their research. Attendees will have the opportunity to visit with representatives of the nation’s hottest franchise businesses from a broad cross section of industries.  Hosted by Franchise Source Brands International (FSBI), the goal of this Expo is to educate individuals on the benefits of business ownership and franchising, giving aspiring entrepreneurs a wealth of information and knowledge on the various business models available for investment.

The Midwest Franchise and Business Exposition will be held on Friday, May 20th and Saturday, May 21st at the Crowne Plaza O’Hare, 5440 North River Road in Rosemont, IL 60018.   The Franchise Exposition will be open on Friday from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm and on Saturday from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm.

Attendees will get a chance to speak one-on-one with representatives from many of the country’s leading franchise companies on the individual business model.  During the two-day event, educational panel discussions will feature local franchise owners, legal, insurance, accounting, marketing and financing professionals to help aspiring business owners understand what it takes to succeed in franchising.

Tom Whennen, MBA, of Oak Park, is a new franchisee and the proud owner of a business coaching business, with The Entrepreneur’s Source.  “I wanted to do something completely different after spending close to 30 years in the business world.  I realized that I can parlay my extensive corporate experience into helping other business owners grow their business.  And I’m good at it.  And the real bonus is that as a franchisee, I’m working with a proven system with all the marketing tools needed and training support I need to get off to a good start,” he added.
