Have You Ever Thought About Owning a Franchise?- Montgomery County

November 14, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Do you think all franchises cost a small fortune? It’s not true! Let Stephanie Lewis, Business Ownership Coach, teach you the facts and dispel the fallacies about franchising and funding. You will learn how to compare and contrast franchising versus independent business ownership. Stephanie will guide you through deciding which franchise may be the best fit for you, options for funding, associated costs and understanding a basic Franchise Disclosure Agreement.

We are located at 51 Monroe Street in Suite 20 on the Plaza East Level. We share offices with Rockville Economic Development (REDI)

If you are parking in the garage below the building at 51 Monroe, you would push “PL” on the elevator, turn left and look for the east wing. ( Plaza East sign is above the Wing entrance)

There are several parking options:


  • There is a garage under our building at 51 Monroe Street, but the entrance is on Monroe PLACE.
  • There is another underground garage with an entrance after the stop sign on Monroe Street from Rockville Town Center and also an entrance on 255 Frederick Road( Route 355) easily accessible if you are heading south on Route 355. From this garage, you will need to walk through the lobby and exit at the plaza level and walk across the plaza to Building #51. This entrance is the plaza level.
  • There are also open lots throughout the area of Rockville Town Center.


Please arrive on time. Coffee and tea will be served.

Note our Policy: No Refunds for workshops not attended. No cash walk-ins (credit cards accepted) in our Rockville location.
