GREEK will be offering a chance to have the initial franchise fee (valued at $35,000) waived for one eligible franchisee in order to help them start up their own MR. GREEK restaurant franchise. The competition will kick off Monday, August 24th! The initial franchise fee waiver is a wonderful way to help the economy – one person at a time.
“We are thrilled that MR. GREEK has decided to hold this competition in conjunction with our upcoming show”, states Fred Cox, President of National Event Management. “To see such a high quality franchise help stimulate the economy by waiving the initial franchise fee for one eligible franchisee is a huge offering in these times.

To enter the competition, beginning August 24th, 2009, would-be entrepreneurs will need to visit www.torontofranchiseshow.com or the MR. GREEK booth at Canada’s National Franchise & Business Opportunities Show, to be held September 12th & 13th, 2009 at the International Centre, and submit an application and an essay (maximum 500 words) explaining why they deserve a MR. GREEK franchise. All applications and essays will be accepted in-person at the Show no later than 5:00 pm Sunday, September 13th, 2009, or on-line until 11:59 pm that same day. Five finalists will be chosen from among all eligible applicants and assigned a MR.
