Whether you are looking to start a business or want to know how to franchise your existing business, we are here to help, give advice and support you all the way.
Franchising Works Networking Masterclass Event will be held at The Venue Expo 2016 at the Exhibition Centre, Liverpool.
Franchising is where the owner of a franchise system (‘the franchisor’) agrees to license the use of its operating systems, brand and other Intellectual Property, and provide training and ongoing support to enable another person (‘the franchisee’) to start up and run an identical business elsewhere.
Franchising is well-established in the UK, where there are almost 37,000 franchise businesses, employing over half a million people and generating £12.4bn in revenue.
Franchisees of well-established franchise systems benefit from:
Businesses based on existing models with proven track-records,
Initial training and ongoing support (which also make franchise businesses more accessible to those without work experience or skills),
Better access to bank lending to finance the purchase and start-up costs,
Economies of scale and greater purchasing power that derive from being part of a larger business network.
FACT: Franchisees go into business for themselves, not by themselves.
Franchising can therefore be described as supported self-employment. 90% of franchise businesses are still operating after 5 years. They are therefore a very sustainable form of self-employment. Many franchise businesses can be started with little experience, training and cost. FranchisingWorks has access to sources of finance to help meet the start-up costs for successful candidates with insufficient financial resources of their own.
With 900 franchises to choose from, franchising includes not only well-known fast-food and retail brands, but also many that provide services directly to private consumers in their homes or to other businesses using the franchising model. Therefore, you are guaranteed to find a franchise to meet your interest.
