Franchise Direct, the UK’s leading online portal of franchise opportunities, is excited to announce the launch of their summer Recession Buster campaign. The campaign, exclusive to Franchise Direct, features discounts and special offers from some of the UK’s leading franchises, including Guardian Financial Group and EnviroVent – the energy saving home improvements franchise, who recently won a Queen’s Award for Innovation.
The Recession Buster campaign has been established to encourage franchises to offer discounts to individuals in the UK so that the level of new business start ups in the UK will increase. The campaign will last from May 1st right through the summer until August 31st 2009 and will feature discounted franchise opportunities from a diverse range of industries including financial and accounting, home improvements, health and beauty and children’s fitness franchises.
During the economic recession, franchise opportunities offer real career alternatives to individuals facing redundancy and unemployment. Working from a proven business model, under a recognisable brand, franchises have a higher success rate than independent small businesses. In conversation with Franchise Direct recently, chairperson of the International Franchise Association Dina Dwyer Owens described franchising as “the real economic stimulus plan”. Franchise Direct hopes that the summer campaign will enable more people to start their own business and keep the British economy going.
Speaking about the launch, Director of European Sales for Franchise Direct Brian Rogan said “we hope the campaign will make more people aware of the wide range of franchise opportunities available today. The discounted franchises for sale will offer individuals real opportunities to start their own business. Some franchises are offering two for one offers on their products, others are offering financing packages or reduced franchise start up fees.”
