Latest NIC Chronicle now available – Free information resource for prospective franchisees

February 14, 2019

The NIC Chronicle is part newsletter, part informative resource for aspiring business owners and prospective franchisees. It’s a great way to publish a variety of content that the company knows will benefit those looking to go into business for themselves, becoming a go-to resource over the years for communicating the NIC Franchise opportunity to those who request a further insight.

The current edition collects much of the information published over the course of last year on Discovery Days, women in franchising and insider tips on becoming a successful franchisee. This edition also communicates some eye-opening findings from a recent bfa Natwest Survey that should provide all the confidence a prospective franchisee needs to trust in the franchise business model.

The latest edition was certainly a popular take-away for attendees to the NIC stand during this month’s British & International Franchise Exhibition at Olympia, so it only seems appropriate to offer the resource to our website visitors too.

Below is a brief run-down of the content you can find inside the latest edition of the Chronicle. Download your free copy for full access to content.

Franchise Discovery Day Sessions critical to making the right decision

You’ve looked into the benefits, you think that you’re ready to make a positive change, but it’s still early in the process and that decision can’t be made without absolute conviction or cause to feel certain. Franchise Discovery Days are designed to do just that – one way or another, help you make an important decision.

Tips for choosing a franchise

Don’t judge a book by its cover – An insight into avoiding one of the most common mistakes people make when choosing a franchise.

It’s about you, not the title and it will take time to learn your trade. Use informative content like the Chronicle, request franchise packs or go one stage further with a discovery day session. Choosing where your future business will lie isn’t easy, and it requires time and research – Just know that it is worth it.

Women in Franchising

The trending topic of women in franchising takes centre-stage in the latest edition of the Chronicle, which is good timing after the release of bfa Natwest’s Survey reporting that women now account for 37% of new franchisees – an increase of 20% since 2015.

The Chronicle includes a main ‘Women in Franchising’ feature, an introduction to new Franchise Network Manager, Louise Harris and an insight into the successful £2m turnover franchisee partnership of Charlotte Eccleston and Kerry Miller.
