Franchising is one of the most exciting new business opportunities all around the Arabian Gulf. Yet there is little formal training available and very few experts or consultants who can grow this industry and assist entrepreneurs on how to become franchisees or how best to invest in this business. American Global Consulting is now pleased to offer a series of comprehensive training courses in franchising through its new Union Training Center. In addition, American Global Consulting has special access to the most knowledgeable experts on franchising and the most successful practitioners of existing franchises. Our clients will learn the fundamentals of franchising — how to grow a franchise and what skills are needed to succeed and have opportunities to explore and make connections with some of the most successful brands around the world like KFC and Papa John’s. AGC’s franchise clients will learn about the International Franchise Association as well, the trade association headquartered in Washington DC that governs the practice of franchising across the world. Government agencies in the Gulf which are seeking specialized franchise training in order to develop their nation’s economy are advised to join this program as are private sector entrepreneurs who are planning to establish a franchise of their own. UTC’s franchising certiﬁcation program provides the knowledge and contacts needed to establish and maintain the best international franchises in the Arabian Gulf.
