Founders Series: Rick Bisio, and the Journey to the “The Educated Franchisee”

May 2 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Rick Bisio is well known in our community as an insightful and practiced leader. Outside of his love for Hawaiian shirts, when he has the time to relax, Rick is classic, thorough, and unpretentious as he gets things done.

You won’t want to miss this session on the story behind the man and the business.
