An annual Chicago event coming up at the end of August (August 25 to August 27) is the answer that many franchisors are looking for.  Three years ago, a business-powerhouse saw a problem and did something about it by creating the Franchise Capital Exchange (FCX). Franchise Capital Exchange is the only event of its kind where franchisors present their business opportunities to potential investors in an effort to secure capital to fuel their future.


This event is a one-stop-shop where brands and capital partners come together and can pitch themselves to multiple parties. The event allows for cost and time efficiencies as well as encourages networking and learning opportunities.

The brain behind this revolutionary idea is that of Susan Black-Beth, Chief Operating Officer for Super Wash, Inc., who was literally born into the business world.  Susan comes from a family of entrepreneurs and grew up in a family business and started working when she was 4 years old.

Susan’s Background:

  • Susan bought her first business (Super Wash rehab) when she was 19 yrs old
  • Susan was a multi-unit franchisee for 9 years
  • She started a professional speaking business in 2010 (33 yrs old)
  • She started Franchise Capital Exchange (originally known as "Dealmakers' Summit) in 2012 (35 yrs old)
  • Overall, Susan started 3 companies by the time she was 35 

In segment 2, you will hear Marty McDermott, the President of Franchise Interviews, on WVOX radio discussing franchising and branding.
