“We are thrilled for this chance to network and represent all three of our brands at this great event,” said Mark Jameson, chief support and development officer of Propelled Brands. “Propelled Brands is set to show everyone about our three franchise opportunities and how we support our franchisees. Additionally, having such strong members of our network speak at this event is exciting. The panel and class held by our very own Emily Staples and Jeff Lewis will provide valuable information and offer those who attend the chance to improve both themselves and their business.”

There were a lot of things I didn’t know before opening a business that I wish someone would have told me.”
