bfa Prospective Franchisee Seminars
During this one day seminar, you will hear from the bfa on the important considerations and structure relating to franchising. You will be taken through some of the financial considerations of which you will need to be aware and you will hear from a bank about raising finance. A franchisee will also share with you their first-hand experiences about what it is like to be a franchisee and their experiences when they were starting the business. You will also hear about what franchisors look for and how they choose their franchisees. You will even be given an introduction to the franchise agreement, the document that sets out how the franchise will work and what you should expect. Anyone considering starting their own business will find this seminar vitally important.
bfa Prospective Franchisor Seminars
The seminars will help you to consider whether franchising is right for your business and understand the necessary skills and business culture required to be a successful franchise operation. As well as hearing from both a franchisee and a franchisor to gain their perspectives, you will gain further insight into the finance that needs to be raised and the importance of the franchise agreement; a document that will protect your business and allow you to operate effectively as a franchisor.
If you are unsure about whether franchising is right for your business or if you are looking to expand, develop or grow and have considered franchising as a method of doing so, this seminar will provide the clarification that you need.
