Hi jcobankco - I'm a big fan of trade shows. You might find the perfect supplier for your shelving and other store fixtures, and it's a great way to get your new franchise out there in the local business community. You can read a great article about the important benefits that trade shows can help your business out with at How Trade Shows Can Benefit Your Small Business.
Let us know what you've found out, and feel free to browse our community for other helpful articles and discussions. We look forward to hearing more from you!
