Scaling Social Enterprises Through Franchise Models:
Rethinking Social Franchise Agreements

Date: Wednesday, Oct 13, 2021

Time: 11:15 A.M. - 12:45 P.M. Eastern Time (UTC - 4)

Hosted by the Rosenberg International Franchise Center (Peter T. Paul College of Business at the University of New Hampshire) and the International Franchise Association Social Sector Franchise Task Force, this free, 90 minute social franchising webinar will feature an engaging discussion around topics explored in a recent article published in the UMKC Law Review, Scaling Social Enterprises through Franchise Models: Rethinking Social Franchise Agreements”, authored by attorneys Deborah Burand, David Koch, and Katie Yang.

Deborah Burand and David Koch will lead the conversation examining why (and why not) a franchise model — rather than alternative growth strategies — might be attractive to social enterprises that seek to scale, and the implications for their franchise agreements. Social franchisor Mercado Fresco will also join the program to share learnings from their social franchising agreement.
