  • “This conference is an unparalleled networking, deal-making and education opportunity. I strongly urge you to attend if you are serious about multi-unit franchising -- whether as a franchisee, franchisor, a lender or a vendor partner, this is the place for you.”

    Robert Branca, Jr., President, Branded Management Group / Branded Realty Group

  • "Our sponsorship resulted in two new deals last year."

    Greg Vojnovic, CDO, Popeyes

  • "Each year I learn more about the challenges facing franchisees. I take the knowledge and improve my product that allows me to better support our franchisee and franchisor partners."

    Tom Epstein, CEO, Franchise Payments Network

  • "Jersey Mike's Subs has been coming to Franchise Update Media Group's Multi-Unit Franchising Conference since 2008. With confidence, I can say that this event yields significant results for us year in and year out. Whether you are looking to expand your knowledge, network with top franchisees throughout the franchising world, or meet your next multi-unit franchisee, this event is a must-attend for franchisors and franchisees alike. They should rename the conference to "How to Grow & Who to Grow With."

    Brian Sommers, VP Franchise Development, Jersey Mike's Subs

  • “This is a networking conference that enables you to meet multi-unit franchisees you would never meet elsewhere. People that have much in common but have no forum for sharing best practices. This is what this conference is about.”

    Tony Lutfi, President & CEO, Marlu Investment Group
