Dale Carnegie Training, a New York City-based international leader in performance improvement training and solutions, is seeking franchisees in the Utah market, in which it has not operated for several years.
“We previously had a franchisee in Utah, but after three years' time away from the state we recognized that it is an incredibly important and rapidly expanding area for businesses, company spokesperson Emily Forrest said in an e-mail. “We want to once again establish our presence in Utah in order to form new partnerships with both local and national businesses. We feel that our company is integral to helping others succeed.”
Forrest said the franchise fee is $20,000 plus an ongoing royalty of 12 percent until a royalty threshold is hit in any given year, at which point it drops to 7 percent on additional revenue.
She said Dale Carnegie Training has offered business training to 80 percent of the world’s leading companies, including middle market and large corporations as well as organizations. To produce measurable results, courses focus on improving essential management and leadership skills and are available in 30 languages throughout the world, reaching the entire United States and more than 85 countries. The 100-year-old company is a top 25 franchise as rated by the Wall Street Journal. More than five million people have attended Dale Carnegie programs. The firm has some 3,000 consultants and trainers.
