The UK’s No. 1 Franchise Directory for Over 15 Years

The British Franchise Exhibition Will Return to Manchester on 19 and 20 June 2015

With the announcement by The Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne confirming his commitment to the continued investment of an economic ‘Northern Powerhouse’, 2015 is becoming an important year for the North.

The North of England has already seen significant economic expansion over the last 10 years, with towns such as Warrington increasing their number of successful new businesses by 30% from 2004 to 20131. Confidence in the UK economy is continuing to grow and with support from The British Franchise Exhibition, ambitious entrepreneurs are being given the opportunity to start their own businesses and contribute to the strength of the local and national economy.

Returning to EventCity this summer, The British Franchise Exhibition will showcase the benefits of running a business, and offer visitors the chance to discuss potential ventures with franchise brands offering regional opportunities. Attendees will also gain exclusive insight into the proven success of the franchise model which currently boasts the employment of over 500,000 Brits across the UK. 92% of franchises are operating profitably.

Sponsored this year by the world’s No. 1 health and fitness brand, Anytime Fitness, the two-day event will bring together industry experts, key franchise brands and potential franchisees from across the north of the UK. Attendees will have the rare opportunity to meet face-to-face with top brands, all of which meet the British Franchise Association’s (bfa) strict guidelines.

Exhibitors from a wide range of industries including property, care, food and drink, cleaning, home improvement, white collar, van-based and fitness, each with a range of high to low investment options will be on hand and keen to speak with aspiring business owners to answer any queries regarding their business. Established brands such as McDonald’s, Clarriots Care, and Anytime Fitness will also be showcasing all the exciting new opportunities they have on offer.

A variety of free and informative features as well as first hand guidance from industry experts will also be available to those attending the exhibition. This includes an extensive conference programme offering over 40 free seminars, finance clinics, and panel discussions.
