Over the next seven days, franchise head offices are expected to be hives of activity as the franchising world puts what it has to offer clearly on show.

At the National Franchise Exhibition, which begins this Friday, a whole host of brands will be setting out their stall to meet prospective new franchise owners. Some of the industry’s biggest brands, including McDonald’s, Mobalpa and Signs Express are making their way to Birmingham’s NEC to show off what they have to offer for the right investors.

In addition to the UK’s biggest franchise exhibition, the annual bfa awards will take place this Thursday on October 3. The awards are designed to recognise extraordinary achievement in the franchise industry and will include high-performing franchise brands such as ServiceMaster Clean and Driver Hire. The glittering awards dinner will take place at the International Conference Centre in the heart of Britain’s second city, Birmingham, just hours before the NFE kicks off.

As if this was not enough, the largest edition of The Franchise Magazine is out now and features more than 200 brands as well as free tickets to this week’s NFE.
