When it comes to women in business, franchising has long been ahead of the curve. Some 30% of the UK's 40,000 franchisee businesses are owned and run by women, according to the bfa/NatWest Franchise Survey. That's higher than the rate of female SME ownership across the UK - 18%, according to the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills.
At TaxAssist Accountants 21% of franchisees are female. The majority run their franchise individually, although we also have many married couples, mother and son, father and daughter franchisees and a brother and sister team.
TaxAssist Accountants Business Development Director Sarah Robertson is hosting an interactive workshop as part of the campaign on Tuesday 17th November, at Stratford Manor in Warwickshire. This will form part of an educational and inspirational day for any women interested in finding out more about franchising. Charges do apply and booking is essential.
