Our next meeting is a Business Lunch with guest speaker and franchising expert Brian Keen, who will be giving a talk on…
How To Franchise My Business Simply (and get it right first time)
DATE: Thu 14th June
PLACE: Waterloo Bay Hotel Berrima Street Wynnum
Brian has spent 30 years working in the franchise industry and is the author of the book “How to franchise my business – simply”. In his time he has built up six franchise groups, with over 120 outlets between them, and consulted with many many more. He is frequently interviewed in the media on franchise issues.
The Queensland Government’s Business Queensland page says “Franchises offer the independence of small business ownership supported by the benefits of a big business network”, and franchising can also be a very effective way of growing a business as a franchisor.
Australia loves franchising – there are 1,660 franchise groups in Australia that employ 4.4% of the entire workforce and franchised businesses outperform GDP growth. However recent bad press – due to bad behaviour by just a few groups – has cast an undeserved shadow over the industry. Franchising can still be great option – but you have to do it right!
At the lunch Brian will be talking about franchising as an option for fast business growth.
