Aspiring entrepreneurs will have an unprecedented opportunity to get on the fast track to owning a small business by meeting face-to-face with the high-level executives from over 450 proven franchise opportunities – including Marcus Lemonis, the host of the hit reality series “The Profit” – at the 25th Annual International Franchise Expo from June 16-18 at the Javits Center in New York City. TAPinto will have an exhibition booth at the Expo.

Franchising has become one of the fastest – and most lucrative – routes to being successfully self-employed, with average annual pre-tax income for franchise owners at $80,000 per year. Touching nearly every industry – from restaurants and fitness clubs to auto repairs, pet supply stores and more – franchise investments range from as little as $5,000 up to $1 million. Last year, well over ten thousand people, from 50 states and 122 countries attended the International Franchise Expo, which is the world’s largest event for franchise ownership and development.

Attendees will have a chance to hear advice directly from Lemonis, one of the most sought-after small business and franchising experts, when he delivers the Expo’s keynote on Friday, June 17th at 10:15 a.m. Lemonis, who has invested more than $35 million to help small businesses and launch people’s franchise dreams, will also make appearances in a pop-up, completely functional replica of The Simple Greek, his new restaurant franchise brand set to open in over 20 major markets this year.

“To properly understand the current state of the U.S. economy, one must analyze and appreciate the role of small businesses throughout our country,” said Lemonis, entrepreneur and host of CNBC’s hit reality series, The Profit. “I am excited to be a part of the International Franchise Expo because of the awareness they bring to small businesses of all industries. Never underestimate their voice and influence; small business owners are innovators, problem-solvers and entrepreneurs, and, most importantly, they are the lifeline of our communities.”

The International Franchise Expo costs $10 to register in advance and $20 at the door, but people who register at www.IFEinfo.com and use promo code DCTAP can receive a complimentary pass.

“Anyone looking to be in business for themselves but not by themselves should attend the International Franchise Expo, and see the world of opportunity that exits for franchise ownership,” said Tom Portesy, President and CEO of MFV Expositions, the organization that produces the International Franchise Expo. “Becoming a franchise owner can be one of the most important decisions ever made in a person’s career and we’re here to make sure they are equipped with a solid foundation to succeed.”

Along with a comprehensive exhibit hall with franchise opportunities on display, highlights of this year’s International Franchise Expo will include:

  • Over 70 free seminars and 9 in-depth workshops – Whether planning to buy a franchise or want to franchise your successful small business, the Expo offers a jam-packed schedule of free panels and workshops on practical, legal, and strategic topics from how to connect with the right lenders and formulate a business plan to special panels for veterans, diversity and women in franchising
  • 1-on-1 consulting – Get objective advice and guidance on buying a franchise by meeting one-on-one with business leaders from the business education non-profit SCORE
  • Contests, discounts & free samples – Exhibitors will offer free product and menu samples, substantial discounts, giveaways and other special promotions – from a UPS prize package worth $176,000 with promotional video production and consulting services from Lemonis to a full franchise giveaway from art-class franchise Painting Fiesta
  • Small business heroes – Notable franchisers including ‘Shark Tank’ winner Jason Hanson and Light Middleweight Kickboxing Champion of the World Shannon “The Cannon” Hudson are among the exhibitors, offering advice as well as franchise deals

The International Franchise Expo is sponsored by the International Franchise Association (IFA) and assisted by the U.S. Department of Commerce/U.S. Commercial Service. The International Franchise Expo is owned and operated by MFV Expositions, producers of shows in the United States, Mexico, Japan, the United Kingdom and Ireland.
