Launch Internship Program

Franworth’s Launch Internship Program offers two different learning experiences allowing students to take charge of their own development as young professionals in an encouraging, learning-centered environment. Unlike many internships, Launch provides students with behind-the-scenes exposure to both emerging and established brands.

Reach by John Rotche

REACH is about making human connections through mentorship and going for inspirational goals. Entrepreneur John Rotche draws from his experience of building successful companies to accelerate brand value in the franchising industry. Despite the reality that most franchise businesses fail to reach the critical 100-unit threshold, Rotche shares his lessons learned from his mentors, including legendary figures like Bo Schembechler, Tom Monaghan, and David McKinnon. Through their wisdom and his own experiences, Rotche provides tactics for finding strong role models, setting and achieving seemingly impossible goals, and inspiring the next generation of leaders. Proceeds from the book support the International Franchise Association’s NextGen program to aid new entrepreneurs.
