FSN Suppliers at Franchise Young Conference

Franchise YoungConference, presented by the team behind Franchise Supplier Network, is one of our favorite events of the year!

It’s a place for the young (and young-minded) innovators in franchising to gather and share their knowledge and strategies to navigate the constantly changing digital realm. If you haven’t begun considering how to implement the latest technologies – and create your own – to build your business, you’re getting left in the dust. While their older counterparts may take the lead in experiential knowledge, successful CEOs of all ages are increasingly looking to their younger peers – and even employees! – for insight on innovation, creativity and thinking outside the box.

This year’s event is May 10-12th in Chicago and hundreds of millennials in franchising have already registered! Here’s just a few of the topics our suppliers and partners will be covering:

Supplier Summit: Cultivating Productive Supplier / Franchisor Partnership

Moderated by Jeff Horst, Rocketbarn Marketing CEO | Featuring Trevor Rappleye, FranchiseFilming CEO

At many conferences, the franchisor/franchisee relationship is a frequent topic. In this open forum session, we cover the other, unheralded relationship in the franchise space: the supplier/franchisor relationship. From selection, to new partnership rollouts, to managing expectations and ongoing supplier relations; our speakers will experience-share from both sides of the relationship to help the audience make the most of this important partnership.


Beyond The Employee Handbook: How To Attract & Retain Best-In-Class Talent

With decades of experience on one panel, attendees will take away best practices to create their own employer branding, recruitment and retention “wins” in their brand. From defining a strategy to outlining a solid plan, learn from leaders in a “PechaKucha” format on how they were able to innovate their brand’s employee experience and communication to drive recruitment and brand culture.
