Roadmap to Success workshop to discuss franchising success

Henderson Chamber series continues with Sarah Brown of FranNet Feb. 5

HENDERSON, Nev. – Sarah Brown, a franchise business consultant for FranNet, will present “How to Fail at Franchising” as part of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce’s Roadmap to Success workshop series from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 5, at the Henderson Business Resource Center, located at 112 S. Water St. in downtown Henderson’s Water Street District.

During the presentation, Brown will explain the franchise business model, why finding the right franchise is important to success and how to find it as well as address the myths of franchising. She also will address those who want to explore diversification through semi-absentee franchise ownership, as passive franchise ownership can open additional revenue streams.

FranNet works to help those seeking a franchise find the one that best suits their personality and needs. Before joining the company, Brown served as the regional developer for Synergy Home Care in Colorado and grew the concept from one location to five in three years. She successfully sold her business in 2014. A Navy veteran, Brown’s background includes serving as an executive at Boston Market and supply chain director for General Mills.

All chamber members and the public are invited to attend. There is no cost for Henderson Chamber members. Cost for non-members is $25. An additional $10 will be charged for walk-in attendees. To reserve a space, visit by Tuesday, Feb. 3.

The City of Henderson is the sponsor for this event.
