Help Me Reach Out

I recently took a job working for a dear friend. Little did I know but his right hand man(my boss) is extremely difficult to get along with. They have presented to me the task of registering our company with every franchise and franchisee in the state of nj. When I asked them how I can begin to accomplish this I receive nothing. I recently found this web site and I am hoping that someone here can help me. I truely believe we offer a quality service and can help businesses find economical solutions for their flooring needs.

Is there anyone here that can point me in the right direction?

Clarification?

Don't really understand your question. Are you seeking to market your product to businesses which happen to be franchises?

If so, you should be aware that most zors have specific trade dress standards and most zees in a given area tend to use the same contractors; either because they are ordered to do so or because those contractors have developed expertise in quickly complying with f'zor standards.

Perhaps you could clarify what it is that you are trying to accomplish.

NY Rest Show

It might be a bit late to set up a booth, but I would try attending the NY Restaurant Show at the Javits Center (next month), or the Hotel/Motel show (November).

As to flooring, many zees use contractors who subcontract that type of work, and/or use referrals from their system's regional area developer. Of course, with such arrangements the party referring you may expect a "gratuity"-- but that's a whole different controversy.
