Franchise Direct are excited to announce that they will be participating at The Franchise Show in London’s ExCel arena on 6th & 7th February 2009.
Franchise Direct’s Sales Manager Brian Rogan said “Franchise Direct is looking forward to introducing potential franchisees, searching for good franchise opportunities, to Franchise Direct which is the UK’s premier interactive online franchising portal”. Franchise Direct representatives will be on hand at Stand 531 to introduce Franchise Direct’s website’s current features which include the best franchise opportunities available today, advice on securing financing and legal issues and an interactive forum which allows the user to view franchise videos from franchisors and existing franchisees as well as advice sessions from Franchise Direct CEO Sean McGarry. Franchise Direct offer a huge variety of franchise opportunities across a variety of different industries including the food franchise and home based franchise opportunities which are proving to be very popular.
This is the first time that The Franchise Show has been held in the UK and marks an increase in interest within the UK in franchise opportunities, which have a higher success rate than independent small businesses – especially during a recession. A BFA/NatWest Bank Survey stated that “Franchising is a safer method of starting your own business [...] 90% of franchisees are profitable”.
The Franchise Show say that “franchising, covering over 75 industries, is a tried and trusted way of working for yourself, but not by yourself”. The Franchise Show will feature hundred of exhibitors from a variety of sectors in the franchise industry ranging from well established franchises to new and upcoming franchises, as well as advisors on financing a franchise opportunity and legal issues involved in franchise agreements. The Franchise Show also offers dozens of seminars designed for franchisees, individuals interested in investing in a franchise opportunity and franchisors. Also, Rachel Elnaug, former Dragon’s Den Panellist will be among keynote speakers at The Franchise Show speaking on a variety of topics involved in franchising. There is something for everyone and it is all you need to know about franchising under one roof.
