This session brings together some of the area’s largest shopping center owners, representatives of national brands who have succeeded in expanding in this market and a broker with extensive experience introducing franchises into the market. The goal of the panel is to explore how to approach this market, what to expect through the process, how to best approach Landlords and how to get to lease for spaces that meet your criteria.
