Brazilian companies are coming to Los Angeles for the West Coast Franchise Expo-2006, which occurs November 3-5 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, seeking local partners for the expansion of their businesses in the American market.

Among other companies, visitors to the Brazil Pavilion can get to know such top brands as Rosa Chá (apparel), Livraria Nobel, Showcolate (food), Wizard (language instruction) and Global Franchise (consulting), as well as learning more about the local market at the booth of the ABF (Associação Brasileira de Franchising – Brazilian Franchising Association).
