 Dreaming of your own business?

franchise exhibitions...and being your own boss?

If the answer is yes then why not visit a franchise exhibition?

Discover how franchising can bring the benefits of being your own boss, alongside the support of an established network and a successful brand.

Franchising has been proven as one of the safest ways of starting a new business because you enter the market with an established brand and a proven, successful business formula to follow.

While UK GDP grew by 0.7% in 2011, the franchise industry increased economic contribution by 8% as turnover rose to £13.4billion. While other sectors contracted over the year, 9 out of 10 franchise businesses posted a profit over the year.

A day at one of the UK's Franchise Exhibitions could help make this a reality and offer new, instant business solutions. With events held in London, Birmingham and Manchester, you are sure to find an opportunity to suit your needs.

These events are all supported by the British Franchise Association (bfa) which means all the franchises exhibiting have been accredited by the bfa and have met their strict and ethical and business criteria of a good franchise.

The Franchise Exhibitions therefore give you the perfect opportunity to research the options available, as well as being able to assess for yourself the benefits of running your own business as part of an established franchise brand.

Although the failure rate in franchising is much lower than that in many other new businesses, there are still risks involved so it is essential to research the franchisor and the market thoroughly.
