Impressive Showing at 2013’s International Franchise Expo

Based upon the Show Directory of the June 20-22, 2013 International Franchise Expo (IFE) in New York City, there were a total of 248 franchisors that had booths at the annual event. There were an additional 160 or so suppliers that also had booths.

Of the 248 franchisors, 223 were US-based, 7 were Canada-based and 18 were international. As is usually the case, there were a number of new franchisors (roughly 25) that are new to the scene of franchising within the past year. We wish them luck in a very tough industry and a tough economy.

MFV Expositions (the IFE's producers) estimate that there were 14,902 domestic visitors and 3,725 international visitors, for a total of 18,627. Given the economy, this is an impressive showing and demonstrates that well-done franchise shows (all of the shows put on by MFV Expositions (www.MFVExpo.com) are well-organized and well-attended) still attract a large audience interested in learning more about franchising. Everyone is hopeful that the modest improvements in the economy and a slight easing of credit will bode well for the franchising industry as a whole.

Noted below is an alphabetical listing of the 248 franchisors in attendance. If you would like to view a more expansive list that also provides a link to each company's website, please click here.
