The Kent Franchising Exhibition...14th/15th September 2007

With over 40 exhibitors, Kent Franchising Exhibition 2007 will take place on the 14th and 15th of September...perfect for anyone who is interested in starting a business and wants to consider franchising as an option.

What is franchising and is it right for you?

Franchising is a way in which you can start your own business with products and services which are tried and tested in the market and with the support of a national training and marketing organisation.

With a recent survey showing nine out of ten franchises making a profit, there has never been a better time to get into franchising.

Women and Franchising

Running a franchise provides the flexibility and work/life balance that appeals to women with other commitments.

Women are being particularly courted by franchisors. To find out if it will work for you (and your partner) visit the Kent Franchising Exhibition and attend the seminar session by Pam Feltham 'Breaking the barriers to starting a business - how franchising can help women.'

Franchising provides a network of support when it is needed and will give you confidence to grow your new business.

Franchising for the Over 50's

There is no discrimination on grounds of age when starting a franchise.

This is a safe method of starting something new and making that step from being employed to being your own boss.

Self employment can offer personal dignity, individual satisfaction and financial independence.

Understanding the world of work and self determination are a big bonus. Having confidence and planning ability often proves a successful combination.

Research confirms that '5 years after start up, considerably more businesses run by people over 50 are operating more successfully than those run by younger people'.

Franchising Your Business

If you are the owner of a successful business with the desire to grow and expand then becoming a franchise operation is a simple way to achieve this.

As the company owner, you grant a licence to a local operator to use your name, product, service and goodwill for a specific period of time. You provide the training and market knowledge for the franchisee to gain confidence and establish a successful business.

There needs to be a solid partnership between the franchisee and the franchisor and this creates a 'win, win' situation.
