National Franchise Exhibition re-launches to support prospective franchisees
UK’s annual franchise event re-opens to showcase nationwide franchising opportunities
Britain’s annual franchising event The National Franchise Exhibition re-launches on October 4 to showcase potential business opportunities for those looking to go into franchising.
Held at the NEC Birmingham, the two-day event will enable budding entrepreneurs to meet with over 140 franchise companies from the UK and overseas across a broad spectrum of sectors such as food and drink, retail, property, homecare, fitness and finance.
Participating franchise brands including McDonalds, Cash Converters, The Creation Station and Belvoir Lettings will be on hand to provide free advice and guidance.
The British Franchise Association (bfa), who are backing the exhibition, will be running seminars to cater for those starting out as well as for existing franchise owners. It is also hosting ‘Real Franchise Stories’ which will offer first-hand accounts on running a franchise outlet.
The Finance Clinic, a stand facilitated by Franchise Finance, will provide advice on how to secure funding and free reviews on business plans.
There will also be dedicated areas for prospective franchisees looking for high investment level opportunities and those seeking to discuss resale options.
The National Franchise Exhibition runs from October 4 to October 5.
