The International Franchise Show London

 The International Franchise Show London

Taking the risk to venture out on your own can be a daunting prospect. It’s been reported that nearly 50% of start-ups fail within the first four years, with the major contributing factors being lack of market need for the product/service (42%), lack of planning (67%) and lack of relevant skills (67%). What makes it so much more surprising is that there is a viable, and frankly obvious, alternative…

Franchising contributes more than £15bn annually to the British economy and has seen a 70% increase in its workforce over the past decade. For some, investing into a franchise model is the perfect fit; offering a ready-made business model with a loyal customer base; a tried and tested brand; relationships with suppliers; a dominant online presence and extensive training. Not to mention that these aspects result in a lower level of risk for your monetary investment. It’s all there, boxed up and ready to go. If businesses came flat-packed from a certain retail giant that we’re not inclined to name, they’d probably look like franchises.

The franchise industry in the UK is more diverse than ever before and it’s ripe with opportunities for franchise first-timers hoping to get a foot in the door and for experienced business owners looking to expand their portfolio. A huge part of getting started in franchising isn’t running the business itself, but researching and pinpointing a franchise model to suit your budget, character and ambition, and that’s where The Franchise Show is ready to help.

Visitors who found their dream business

When Steve Foulsham came to the show, he had been thinking about investing in a franchise for a few years but wasn’t sure which industry he wanted to invest in. At the show, he visited many of the stands and attended seminars on the legality and contracts in franchising, which he all found invaluable. From the show, Steve decided to become a Telcoinabox Franchisee and develop his own telecommunications company.

Keith McGregor was made redundant from his job as a Financial Director and was subsequently recommended the show by a friend to get some inspiration for a new business venture. Once he was at the show he spoke to many interesting exhibitors and found the Expense Reduction Analysts stand, which he felt ticked all the boxes for him. Keith found that speaking face-to-face to the successful franchisors at the show was hugely influential for him.

Over 10,000 visitors are expected to visit The International Franchise Show London in 2018 over two days; make sure that you are one of them and register for your free ticket online at or call 0800 1577 950.
