The Pace University Small Business Development Center (SBDC) teamed up with NJSBDC Rutgers to co-host a franchising training session at the 2022 International Franchise Expo. Held at the Javits Center, the expo included exhibits from dozens of franchisors as well as in-person group instruction for aspiring entrepreneurs on a wide range of franchising topics.
