Over 500,000 people are now employed in franchising across the UK and the industry turnover amounts to £13.7 billion. There has never been a better time to adopt one of the UK's most successful business models.
At The British Franchise Exhibition, you will meet face-to-face with a wide range of franchise owners, including the award-winning cost management franchise Auditel. The exhibition is supported by the British Franchise Association (bfa).
This means that all the exhibiting franchises have been checked to meet the Association's code of ethics. As a franchisee, you can develop your own enterprise, within the knowledge-bank of a reputable, established and thriving organisation. The success rates for those engaged in this way have been shown to outstrip conventional self-employment by a long way.

After visiting a previous years’ exhibition…
Auditel franchisee, Lee Freeman says: “After returning to the UK from an FD post in Europe, I looked at both franchising and buying an existing business. I concluded that franchising gave the benefit of running my own business while having the support of a network. I came across Auditel at an exhibition and had a long chat. At a Discovery Day and at subsequent meetings, I liked what I heard. I decided that Auditel ticked all the boxes and that this was the way forward.”
His initial impressions were well-founded, he says: “The training received from Auditel was first rate, from the client acquisition training through to the technical side. Ongoing advice is always available from their Head Office Team and fellow franchisees. Auditel’s systems proved invaluable in starting a business from scratch. They allowed me to concentrate on finding clients, secure in the knowledge that I could meet their needs.”
Matt Sidwell, Auditel’s Network Development Director says: “So, if like Lee, you are thinking about running your own business, with Auditel’s award-winning support, drop in to meet us on Stand N110. If you cannot visit the show, then book a seat at one of our regular free Discovery Seminars
