Franchise Expo South Brings Together Thousands of Prospects From South Florida, Latin America and the Caribbean

MIAMI BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - December 15, 2010) - Entrepreneurs who dream of starting their own business will have the opportunity to explore franchising as a way to achieve business independence at the 5th Annual Franchise Expo South. Sponsored by the International Franchise Association, Franchise Expo South provides prospective franchisees from South Florida, Latin America and the Caribbean with the unique opportunity to meet face-to-face with hundreds of the most accomplished franchised systems from around the world. Held at the Miami Beach Convention Center from January 14-16, 2011, the Expo also features educational seminars about the franchise industry to learn about buying a franchise, turning a business into a franchise, expanding into the Latin America and Caribbean market, as well as the latest legal, strategic and financial issues facing the industry today.

"Franchising has a significant impact on Florida's economy and is responsible for nearly 1.5 million jobs and more than $160 million in revenue," said Tom Portesy, president of MFV Expositions, producers of Franchise Expo South. "In fact, franchises in Florida's 18th Congressional District, which includes downtown and the Brickell financial district, equate to more than $17 million in revenue. We encourage the South Florida community to learn about the benefits of franchising and how joining a well established business model can lead to entrepreneurial success."

Franchise Expo South is designed specifically to allow prospective franchisees to discover which types of businesses match their needs. The tradeshow is a forum for franchisee candidates to do their research in person and meet with franchisors to ensure their potential investment is an ideal match. The expo floor will feature more than 200 exhibitors including Arby's, Baja Fresh, Hurricane Grill & Wings, Choice Hotels, Marble Slab Creamery and The UPS Store, along with thousands of attendees.
