What Is the latino franchise symposium?

The Latino Franchise Symposium was created to gather all those who are interested in the Franchise business for the Hispanic Markets of the U.S and Latin America. This segment is growing at a fast pace, and yet we don’t know everything that needs to be known; all we know is that the possibilities for growth are large, with many sub segments yet to discover and even more unexplored niches.

This is why we created the Latino Franchise Symposium; a one-of-a-kind event to invite those with certain interests, experience, lessons, success stories, and even failures, to come and share visions with others and, by discussing them, increase the possibilities of success. Sponsors can talk to actual entrepreneurs, business owners, and investors about their brands, at the same time coming with an eagerness to know and create new opportunities for business, being guided and inspired by the speakers and participants. This will be, and has been, a very productive gathering in which everyone in attendance walks away with a benefit.

Latino leaders & Franchise

Our Magazine  Latino Leaders has been publishing for 17 years addressing the business, upscale and leadership readers of the U.S. Hispanic markets at a national level. With more that 240,000 distribution copies and 30,000 plus in its digital versions, plus our social media platforms, Latino Leaders is perhaps the most read business and professional publication in the Hispanic market.
Last year, due to the amount of business owners interested how to grow their franchise business and brands in the Hispanic Markets, we put together an event in where we gathered more than 80 investors, franchisees and franchisors looking for opportunities to grow their business in these markets. Brands like Pollo Campero, KFC, Popeye’s, Boston’s Pizza Hut, Cantina Laredo, Liberty Tax, Which Which, 7-Eleven and many more will be participating this year.

Due to our proven success , we’re hosting a Fifth Franchise Symposium “Understanding Opportunities in the Hispanic Markets” on May 21-22, 2019, also in Dallas, TX. This event is directed to Business Owners, Investors, Franchisees looking for opportunities to grow, and Franchisors looking on ways to expand their footprint in the Hispanic Markets


2019 Event HighLights

During the course of this event, panels, keynote addresses, and networking opportunities will take place with issues surrounding the following topics: 

  • Exploring expansion opportunities in US Hispanic Markets

  • Exploring expansion opportunities from Mexico and Latin America Markets

  • Learning and sharing experiences and visions from the ones that have succeeded in Latino communities

  • learning from the basics to expand intentionally/bi-culturally

  • Shopping for brands interested in you!

  • Meeting with motivated investors and operators from the US and Latin America

Every year, business opportunities grow, and the Hispanic Community becomes more entrepreneurial. We have detected several business leaders interested in starting, expanding, and exploring opportunities in this market. The group continues to grow, and for 2019, we have planned what we believe will be the best ever Latino Franchise Symposium.

We are developing specialized opportunities for high-end investors, multi unit operators in search of new markets and brands, and in addition, a private dinner held with these individuals and a selection of featured brands. We’re also exploring the entry level of franchise business opportunities and speaking with potential entrepreneurs to come and explore possibilities regarding starting franchise operation.

Included in this event are various sessions and seminars targeted for training and exploring a first time franchise business. This year we are going to focus on popular interests from previous years, such as; Access to Capital, Operations, Market Opportunities, in addition to the previously mentioned topics.
