We're OPEN for business
Lending is alive and well at the FFDC – and so are growing companies
There's a lot of doom and gloom out there, but attendees at Franchise Times' Franchise Finance & Development Conference in late April heard from a variety of experts about what's going right in the economic landscape of franchising. Lenders are still lending: It just might not be as easy to get funds as it once was, we learned.
Our Blueprint for Growth series featured top executives who shared both their vision and a candid view of their company's road map. We've included some of the highlights from the nine sessions, kicked off by the cover story on both a unique concept and a unique leader in the restaurant industry, Jose Cofino of Adir Restaurants, the master franchisee for Pollo Campero, a hot concept out of Guatemala. Check out who was in attendance and what the speakers from Day 1 had to say about franchising in today's marketplace .
