Are you looking to break into the UK market with the help of a master franchisee or a regional developer?
The franchise sector continues to grow rapidly in the UK. The British Franchise Association/NatWest Franchise Survey 2018 recently found that the total contribution of franchising to the UK economy is in excess of £17bn, up over £2bn since 2015.
With 58% of visitors to The British & International Franchise Exhibition 2022 open to the idea of a master or regional franchise, it is clear that international brands entering into the UK market pose an attractive opportunity to our audience.
Perhaps you are looking for franchisees to expand your brand internationally?
The British Franchise Association/NatWest Franchise Survey 2018 also found that one in three UK franchisors now also have an international operation. Is it time you took your concept overseas?
