Small Business – BIG POTENTIAL Mini Expo

11am - 1pm

Causeway Branch Library, 3457 Hwy 190, Mandeville, LA 70471

Tired of making someone else wealthy and fulfilling their dreams rather than your own?

The  Small Business – Big Potential Mini Expo, co-sponsored by Louisiana Small Business Development Center, SCORE, St. Tammany Chamber of Commerce, St. Tammany Economic Development Foundation, and FranNet Louisiana will be a good first step in exploring business ownership.  This free program, with light lunch provided, will include brief overviews and time for one-to-one conversations with leading franchise businesses coming to Louisiana.

Ever wonder “How do I find a business that fits that isn’t fast food?  How do I find and thoroughly research proven franchise businesses?  What is the real ‘all in’ cost and is financing available? Can I keep my current job or business and build a ‘semi-absentee’ franchise?”

First 25 registered by August 10th will receive a free copy of the new book, “The Franchise Rules” at the event.  Details and registration at:
