London’s leading franchise exhibition is back. The British & International Franchise Exhibition has always been a successful and encouraging show for NIC Franchise. The opportunity to get face-to-face with ambitious individuals focussing on improving their livelihood is rarely as productive as it is at an event like this. Even more so when it takes place early in the new year.
The new year implies new starts and new opportunities and so it should – Read my piece titled new year, new opportunities.
As the only event in London with the support of the British Franchise Association (bfa), exploring the franchise brands and models exhibiting can be done with confidence – All organisations participating are bfa approved.
1-2 February 2019
Franchising is one of the best options for aspiring business owners and the recently published figures from a co-produced franchise survey by the bfa and Natwest really put that franchising growth and success into perspective.
You can see a breakdown of those figures in the box below.
Franchising is a unique model which often includes training and guidance, administrative support and operational assistance to ease first-time business owners into managing a successful organisation.
NIC pride itself on the provision of an experienced and safe pair of hands, training and supporting franchisees in managing and developing a commercial cleaning business. Many of the questions we get asked at exhibitions are centred around the availability of this kind of support and NIC is confident that it can offer the best possible start for any aspiring business owner. You can get a break-down of the support package here.
NIC can attest to the incredible success that the figures above represent and as an established brand in the world of franchising, NIC can point potential franchisees towards many of its own success stories, including the recently published story about Charlotte Eccleston and Kerry Miller – The £2m turnover franchisee partnership.
Whether you’re an individual wanting to test the waters, or you’re as far down the line as wanting to evaluate specific brands, the figures above paint a very powerful picture and the British & International Franchise Exhibition is an ideal opportunity to take the next step in your franchise journey.
NIC also offer Discovery Day Sessions and I would definitely advise that you read my recent blog on the critical link between Discovery Days and making the right decision.
The British & International Franchise Exhibition boasts over 60 free presentations, offers one-to-one expert guidance and provides a platform for ambitious individuals to find out more about why franchising has become one of the UK’s most successful business models. Over 100 franchise brands from a dynamic mix of business sectors are participating, so it promises to be time well spent for those researching franchising and the opportunities it presents.
Opportunities are everywhere and 2019 promises to add new ones if you’re willing to be proactive and take your future into your own hands. Take this opportunity to evaluate your position and get a better understanding of whether franchising is right for you.
I would love to be involved in helping you during that process, so please use the event to start a conversation with me and I’ll be more than happy to share the knowledge and experience I have gained over 24 years in the franchise industry.
You can get a specific meeting time with me at the exhibition by request using the form below. Alternatively, you can come along and meet me and the team on stand E120.
I can’t wait to meet you.
