NextGen In Franchising is creating a talent pipeline for future franchisees, franchisors and suppliers, by engaging and educating the next generation.

The program engages young entrepreneurs and students who are seeking careers and business opportunities in the franchising industry. These young men and women represent a huge talent pool from which to seek future franchise owners, managers and employees for franchise businesses, and entrepreneurs with ideas and energy for new franchise concepts.

More information on NextGen, including the highly successful “NextGen in Franchising Global Competition” is available on the website.

To my fellow millennials who are contemplating franchising as a business opportunity, my biggest advice for you is to take advantage of the franchise company’s training program and resources. I became a Coverall Franchised Business Owner, because their business model, extensive training and ongoing business support services gave me the confidence I needed to pursue my dream of business ownership. Remember, you hold the future in your hands so above all else, follow your dreams.
