Franchise Expo for everyone
The Polish Franchise Organization has once again been the patron of the Franchise Fair at the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw. It was worth it – says Monika Dąbrowska, president of PFO.
Why is it worth participating in the Franchise Fair?
The Franchise Fair at the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw and their spring edition in Katowice is a unique opportunity to meet representatives of numerous franchise systems operating on the Polish market. This event attracts the attention of not only industry specialists, but above all crowds of potential franchisees, who can contact the representatives of franchise companies directly to make the final decision regarding the choice of one of the systems. It is also a great opportunity for people who plan to transform their businesses into franchise companies or organize such companies from scratch to seek specialist advice.
