Highlights and Photos from Two Ismaili Chamber Franchise Events in April

Multi-Unit Franchising Conference, Las Vegas, April 26-29, 2016

The Ismaili Chamber joined forces with the mainstream organizers of this premier franchise event — Multi-Unit Franchising Conference (MUFC) was held in Las Vegas in late April. MUFC is a key national event known for large-scale deal opportunities. This year, the largest multi-unit owners gathered for a three-day conference filled with education, networking and fun.

The Ismaili Chamber organized a private event during the conference featuring the International Franchise Association’s chair, Aziz Hashim, as the speaker. An intimate group of about 50 attendees discussed business opportunities and insights and shared a great deal of excitement, motivation, and realization. Early feedback is that attendees benefited from discussions about scaling, brand selection, financing growth, and enriched their business contacts via networking opportunities.

Tampa Franchise BOSS Event, Tampa, April 10, 2016

The Ismaili Chamber and the Economic Planning Board for Florida collaborated to host a Franchise BOSS event in Tampa in early April. Ismaili Chamber shared resources on evaluating franchises, creating operating partnerships and unit economics. Additionally, the Ismaili Chamber introduced three brands who are looking to expand in Florida — Checkers (focus on C-Store Model), Captain D’s, and Any Lab Test Now. These brands offer diversity — three different industries and investment requirements ranging from $125K to $1M. Excitingly, the turnout was excellent with over 150 attendees when we were expecting 125! There are already several pursuits of business opportunities introduced during the event, as well as some operating partnerships being sought. Cheers to another great Ismail Chamber event!
