Best NON-Franchise of 2017

Meeting Description:
Join us to learn about this stable concept with a deep history, yet lots of room for continued expansion. The dramatic rise of business start-ups in Michigan creates even more demand for these products. This “non-franchise” business opportunity blends marketing and design services with technology and manufacturing. I'm confident it will continue to be of interest to those clients of mine seeking to grow a highly-scalable enterprise, while engaging in challenging, fun and interesting work!
Here's what I like about it:

  • Custom manufactured products that EVERY business needs
  • Regular hours:  9 - 5, M - F
  • Repeat customers
  • One location with few employees
  • $200K approx. total investment (less than most retail concepts)
  • 295 current locations
  • Leverages the owner's marketing, sales, project management, technology, finance and/or manufacturing skills
  • No rules, No royalties

Register NOW, and then grab your lunch, settle in front of your computer, and learn with us...
