Society Wine Bar franchisee Geovanni Este was looking for a food business to open in her booming Channelside neighborhood of Tampa when she met Society Wine Bar Founder and CEO Jayme Kosar at a wine class. She was attracted to the ease offered by a franchise business model.
“I was really drawn to having the backing of a team of franchising and wine experts. I’d been reading a book about small business that said franchising was the way to go,” Este says. “The Society Wine Bar franchise group will be purchasing wine in bulk, which allows for a lower cost — bringing price points really low.”
We’re seeking savvy entrepreneurs like Este to help us expand beyond our popular Tampa, Florida, flagship locations. 2018 is the opportune time to get in on the ground floor of this first-to-market wine bar concept that works well in a variety of markets.
