Start UK Franchising in Two Amazing Days

 Start UK Franchising in Two Amazing Days
London’s International Franchise Show opens for business this April 5th & 6th at ExCel! Here’s why you should go and what you can expect if you do

Why franchise in the UK?

The most recent annual bfa/NatWest Franchise Survey (2018) reports that UK franchising has increased to an all-time high, contributing £17.2bn to the economy – up £2.1bn from 2015. Also significant is that six in ten franchised units turn over more than £250,000 and that the commercial failure rate of a franchised business is less than 10%. The biggest hurdle potential franchisors/franchisees face is finding a perfect franchise. That’s where the International Franchise Show is ready to help.
The International Franchise Show (celebrating 10 years), has grown over the past decade to become the UK’s biggest franchise show, attracting over 10,000 visitors and over 180 exhibitors from more than 60 countries. Discover a huge range of food and drink opportunities, cleaning franchises, entertainment, outdoor, work-from-home, I.T, and many more. Expand your network of valuable industry contacts and hear first-hand advice from franchisees themselves. The show hosts major brands such as Smoke’s Poutinerie, Warrens Bakery, Chemex International, Fast Signs, Agency Express, Hitio Gym, F45 Training, Tubz and many more.
