  • What is franchising and what are the benefits of a franchise model as a growth strategy?

  • Would franchising be right for your business?

  • What does ‘good’ franchising look like?

  • What are the legal requirements and implications when you franchise your business?

  • How can the costs of your franchise growth strategy be funded?

  • Q&As

Whether you have already considered franchising your business or if you want to learn more about if this could be part of your business plans for the future, we welcome you to join us on Thursday 26th September.
