Ins and Outs of Launching a New Franchise

If you have ever considered franchising your business, this podcast episode was prepared specially for you. 

We will discuss the components of a franchise system, how to create a franchise roadmap, the lifecycle of a franchise system, and much more.

To make this deep dive, we have invited a special guest called Dori Steward. And why her? Dori started as a high school STEM teacher and built a multi-million-dollar, global company. So she has a wealth of knowledge and experience to share. Not only on theory, but she has actually created one very successful Franchise of her own.

Dori’s journey began as a high school engineering teacher. She was looking for new ways to engage kids from an early age in STEM studies when she realized she could create her own curriculum. What started as a project with her kids turned into a lucrative business, with inquiries from around the world. She turned this new business into a booming franchise company. After reaching more than 165 locations in 35 countries, and a reach of more than 1 million students, she sold her business in 2020.

Her expertise in business, franchising, and marketing makes her the ideal guest to share knowledge about Franchise; after all, we like to have guests in our show with entrepreneurship skills and real-world experience. 

Over the years, she has received numerous awards in recognition of her accomplishments, including the

2014 Brava Award Winner by Smart CEO Magazine, and she was listed as one of The Most Creative People in Business 2016 by Fast Company Magazine. She has also been featured on Fox News and CNN Money, in Forbes, Kiplinger Magazine, and The Wall Street Journal.
