Franchising in the Family: Great Idea or Recipe for Disaster?

Restaurateurs often view their businesses as their legacies, passing them down from generation to generation. Many others, however, run their companies alongside family as opposed to waiting to hand off the baton after retirement. Others launch new companies together. This session looks at the pros and cons of doing business with your family.
