Looking for a new challenge?

Thinking of starting your own business?

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


Franchising is a great way to become your own boss, offering you the ready-made structure and support of an established business model. You have the independence of self-employment coupled with the guidance and backing of the franchisor.


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. In fact, 90% of franchisees report to be profitable – which is unchanged compared to last year*.


Throughout 2010 franchising has further increased turnover by £600 million (+5%) to £12.4bn. Since 2006, the sector’s turnover, and number of franchise systems, have both grown by 15%, despite a UK GDP growth rate of only 9.4% in the same period.

* Statistics from the 2011 NatWest/British Franchise Association survey


If you’re looking for a new challenge and want to become your own boss, the Franchise Exhibitions could help make this a reality and offer new, instant business solutions. With events held around the UK and Ireland, you are sure to find an opportunity to suit your needs.


The franchise industry offers an enormous variety of businesses for sale, from a diverse range of industries and sectors. 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.
