Use your creative and organizational skills to own an event planner franchise. Learn more about the profitability, training, and lifestyle of owning an event planning franchise.

Perks of Event Planning

In 2022, the party and event planning industry reached $4.08 billion, and event planners are in high demand. Employment of meeting and event planners is projected to grow by 18% by 2031, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Despite a pause in gatherings following the initial phase of the pandemic, the industry is poised for growth. Busy schedules and heavy workloads are prompting people to outsource party planning. And the heavily curated world of social media is raising the bar on expectations for special events.


Event planning is a thriving industry, but there’s much more to it than attending glamorous functions and fancy parties. Successful event planners are detail-oriented, efficient, and flexible. They need to work well under pressure and have great communication skills. At the same time, it’s important to have an eye for style and a knack for entertaining.

Franchise Advantage

Having a partner to provide guidance and training as you embark on your event planning venture is an asset. Franchising enables you to tackle a turnkey event planning business with a proven strategy for success. The franchise provides the training, tools, and support you need to achieve profitability and build a successful business. When you purchase a wedding planner franchise, you gain access to a brand with nationwide recognition and a built-in customer base to boost the bottom line.
