Budding franchisees and those looking for a “flexible working solution” are invited to attend Birmingham’s largest franchise exhibition, which takes place at the NEC tomorrow.

Running on February 17 and February 18, the National Franchise Exhibition will give visitors the chance to speak directly with popular franchises such as McDonald’s and Anytime Fitness and gain free impartial advice from experienced franchisees.

Supported by the British Franchise Association (bfa), the conference will incorporate a programme of presentations including a session on ‘Growing your own business’ which will feature keynotes from successful entrepreneur and Young Gun Steve Bartlett of multi-million pound marketing agency Social Chain, alongside Angela Enright of children’s shoe shop Huntleys Shoes.

With the franchise industry now worth £15.1bn, the event organisers have encouraged those looking to find “suitable role to acquire better work/life balance” to consider franchising.

Pip Wilkins, bfa CEO, has commented:

“The franchise industry is expected to blossom in the coming year as more people realise the benefits of franchising. It’s a successful national structure that has the ability to work on a local level, allowing franchisees to benefit from existing brand recognition. It is a powerful mix and The National Franchise Exhibition is a great opportunity to find out how it could work for you.”
