Franchise Toy Store Owners Hit the Professional Jackpot at the Learning Express Franchise Convention in Las Vegas
The national educational toy store franchise Learning Express, winner of the 2011 Franchise Business Review Specialty Retail Category, celebrates their 25th year at their annual convention in Las Vegas from June 26 – June 29. The Learning Express home office, vendors, storeowners, family, and store employees gather for four days of vendor exhibits, business development session, networking, and of course, a Vegas-sized dose of fun!
The Learning Express franchise convention is also a time to strategize about how to make the coming year even better than the last, and offers information storeowners need to make that happen. New store owners attend a First Anniversary Training session, and all of the storeowners look forward to the keynote speaker who discusses the latest business strategies for success. Several targeted workshops are also offered to educate storeowners on a variety of topics to be implemented in franchise stores.
Most franchisors require you to do things their way. There can be little or no variation. The problem with that type of franchise is that it isn’t much fun if you’re an entrepreneur. All the excitement of running your own business-determining what products best fit your location, what in-store events you want to promote, or where you want to market-aren’t your decisions to make. Someone else is calling the shots. On the other side of the spectrum, establishing and running your own mom-and-pop shop without the guidance and expertise of a franchise system means that you’re flying solo with no one to lean on. That’s why so many start-ups fail. The Learning Express franchise development team is completely involved in every facet of franchise store development and marketing, providing storeowners with several in-store and social media resources for this promotion The company is actively seeking to create new franchise stores in various communities throughout the country. Currently, new demographic information indicates that franchise business opportunities exist in Washington and Oregon.
