LEWISTON – Lewiston-Auburn SCORE and the Androscoggin County Chamber of Commerce will offer a franchising seminar from 1 to 4 p.m. May 14 in the Community Conference Room at the Business Service Center at KeyBank Plaza, 415 Lisbon St.

The seminar will appeal to those who want to work for themselves, but also appreciate how franchising can provide training and continued support while associating themselves with familiar names and logos.

Portland SCORE members Leonard Kovit and Alan Shaver will be the presenters for the session. Both men are former franchisees in the automobile service business. Kovit operated six Meineke shops in Maine and New Hampshire, and Shaver, with a partner, operated seven Midas shops in southern and central Maine. Shaver was also general counsel of a fast food franchiser, thereby having had experience on both sides of the franchise relationship.
