The Great American Expo, producers of the largest American-owned franchise tradeshow, is returning to the Tampa Convention Center. Following an unprecedented year that resulted in the expos going virtual, the two-day event returns for in-person participation, bringing more than 100 top national franchise brands looking to expand in the greater Tampa area, including 7-Eleven, Meineke, Ninja Nation, Tilted Concepts and many more. Throughout the weekend, event attendees will have the opportunity to network with industry executives and franchise developers, talk one-on-one with brand representatives and learn exactly what it takes to get into the franchise industry. The expo also features on-going educational seminars led by industry specialists that cover a range of topics from legal, real estate, finance, marketing and beyond. As part of the expo weekend, attendees will also have the opportunity to support Feeding Tampa Bay’s Cereal for Summer program, which works to alleviate hunger during the summer months and benefits families in the Tampa Bay community, as part of an on-site food drive. Attendees are encouraged to bring boxed cereal, breakfast bars, granola and oatmeal for donation. Food drive bins will be placed near the main entrance of the expo for easy access. Masks are required for entry to the expo hall and sanitation stations will be placed throughout the event.
