Interview with Christopher Conner, President of Franchise Marketing Systems
Why is it that some franchises seem to expand so quickly and others can’t seem to get off the ground? In the franchise development world, you have the opportunity to see some “out of this world” ideas and business concepts. The really exciting part of working in franchising is that you are able to work closely with entrepreneurs who have more vision, insight and ability to innovate than anyone on the planet.
Christopher Conner is confident that what drives the global economy is the small business owner, the entrepreneur who is looking for ways to create, constantly looking for ways to build and always taking a positive spin on how to approach opportunities. Franchising is a nice way to keep your finger on the pulse of the global small business economy and to see what, who and how people are doing business.
