Franchise Expo Chicago
Glen Rock, NJ
Franchise Expo Chicago, sponsored by the International Franchise Association, is the premier 2-day franchising event in the Midwestern United States. Launched in 2018, Franchise Expo Chicago connects established and emerging concepts to thousands of investors from the thriving Midwest region.
Our multi-million dollar cross-marketing campaign and strategic partnerships ensure you’ll meet highly qualified leads. Most attendees have already researched the industry and are ready to buy!
All MFV Expos offer dozens of educational sessions to teach prospective franchisees how to navigate the buying process and choose the brand that’s the best fit. There are also programs geared toward current franchisees and franchisors who are looking to grow their business, covering everything from social media to creating operations manuals.
Newly established concepts get maximum exposure in the Emerging Franchise section, one of the busiest areas on the show floor. We offer an exclusive booth package for brands with 10 units or fewer.
Recently, we launched a fully-integrated matchmaking platform, which allows exhibitors to find attendee prospects pre-show and schedule face-to-face meetings at the expo. Attendees can also research and make appointments with brands based on their industry, investment level, and target areas of expansion.
