SE Missouri Franchise Zoom Class


Even in this pandemic time, the human spirit to be one’s own boss is still alive. Small businesses are starting up in the region on a regular basis.

To help future business owners understand the world of franchising, its benefits and its disadvantages, University of Missouri Extension Field Specialist Richard Proffer has partnered with Mr. Chris Coleman of FranNet to offer an one hour online discussion to anyone interested the possibility of franchising.

Chris is a franchise specialist and works to match up interested party/ies with the right type of franchise. He also educates the parties on both sides of the coin for franchises. Chris said, “the good side you are your own boss and the banks prefer a franchise for lending purposes. The down side, you still are giving some of your profit to another entity.” He works throughout the Midwest but is headquartered in St Louis, MO. 

Chris will cover in this one hour, the benefits of franchising, typical franchisor requirements, funding methods, how do you research franchises and what is the right one for you. He will then in January travel to SE Missouri to do a in-person three hour class where he will go into more depth on what franchise is right for you and answer questions. These in person classes will be social distanced and safe practices followed.

After you register, you will receive the link to the class. If we do not have ten people registered for the class by Wednesday, November 4th, then it will be cancelled and all registrants notified. 

If you do not have an internet link for the class or have questions, please call Richard Proffer at 573-243-3581 so he can assist you in attending the class.
