ENTR 235-03 Identifying Profitable Franchises There is often a fine line between a growing, money-making franchise operation and one that struggles or never quite gets off the ground. It is a skill to properly network, research, and close on a profitable franchise. This course arms students with the tools to succeed as a franchisee, and goes beyond the initial decision to such critical elements as location, hiring, operations management, marketing, and corporate relations.
