Paella Catering Franchise Founder Heads to Orlando to Connect With Franchisors from Across the Country at the International Franchise Association Convention
Franchising your business can be exciting, but it can also be complicated. As a franchisor, you need to keep evolving within the framework of your business model while managing the many moving pieces that contribute to the success of the brand. All the while, you need to network, build relationships, and connect with your peers so that you can keep learning and continue to grow your business.
When building a franchise, some of the best learning opportunities come from other franchisors who have been in your shoes before and can offer strategies for growth and overcoming challenges. This is the exact reason why Chef Paul Schmidgall, founder of the booming Fire & Rice franchise, is headed to the International Franchise Association Convention in Orlando this February.
Chef Paul Schmidgall Looks Forward to IFA Networking & Educational Opportunities
The IFA works to advance the future of franchising while advocating for and protecting its members and their businesses. When you’re a member of the IFA, you are part of a franchising community where people learn from one another through networking and mentoring opportunities. The IFA also motivates members with tools and solutions that set you up for success while offering support at every stage of franchise development through events, programs, and other resources.
During the convention, Chef Paul looks forward to participating in networking events and educational sessions, including summits, learning labs, receptions, roundtables, and more. There, he will connect with top-tier success stories and learn how to overcome shared challenges.
This year, the lineup of keynote speakers at the convention includes Simon Sinek, author of The Infinite Game, who will ask the question, how do we win if there is no end? Sinek says, you can’t win, but you must know how to outlast your competitors. Also speaking is Kevin Hochman, President and Chief Concept Officer of KFC US, who will share an inside look at how the brand re-established itself, and former NFL athlete Trent Shelton, who will discuss what motivates you for success and how to break free of toxic environments.
It’s going to be an exciting and rewarding three days!
