A Winning Formula for Success in Business "Franchising…Myths vs. Facts"

“This is one of the most beneficial events that I have attended at the Greenville Chamber. I think that if you have something that needs to be codified, tapping into the brain power of successful entrepreneurs that are willing to share best practices surrounding topic specific issues is the way to go.”
