They will then submit their entry to the contest page by uploading an image and text explaining how owning a franchise would change their life. After the entry has been uploaded, they will share the entry with their friends and online networks in order to get votes. The winning entry, the one with the most votes by Noon EST on Friday, June 1 2012, will be the recipient of the prize.

“The IFE hosts people from all corners of the globe, each with their own reasons for attending,” said Tom Portesy, President and CEO of MFV Expositions, producers of the show. “We love hearing these stories and feeling the passion and drive that comes with the prospect of owning your own business. Utilizing our social media channel is the best way for us to learn from aspiring business owners and hopefully share their inspiration with others.”
