A noted franchise expert, Ben Litalien, will be on Gonzaga University's campus next week for two lectures on “Franchising for Community Impact.”
The two 90-minute presentations will be Thursday, May 31, starting at 7:30 a.m. and then at 9:15 a.m.
Both are in the Wolff Auditorium at GU's Jepson Center and are free to the public.
The earlier session focuses on issues relevant to business owners and entrepreneurs. The second session ocuses on franchising and nonprofit groups.
A press release quotes him saying, “Given the sustained unemployed an under-employed populations across our communities, taking a deeper look at the franchise model is essential for providing economic stimulus."
GU is cohosting the event with SNAP, a Spokane-based nonprofit dedicated to assisting people and groups improve their lives.
