Become a franchise owner: Get to #BuyaBusiness expo 2016!
If you’re considering entering the potentially lucrative franchise business, get to the Full on Franchising Theatre at #BuyaBusiness expo 2016 find out everything you need to know about franchises.
Buying a franchise is an exciting opportunity to build your new business on the back of an established brand. But not all franchise models are the same, and not all opportunities are all they appear to be.
At the #BuyaBusiness expo 2016, prospective entrepreneurs will discover hundreds of business opportunities, including many top franchise opportunities. To help prospective franchise owners understand the various franchise models, important strategic considerations and the laws regulating franchises, SA Franchise Warehouse will present in-depth Franchising 101 Workshop in the Full on Franchise Theatre. These information sessions will run throughout the three days of the expo.
Kobus Oosthuizen, Founder & MD at SA Franchise Warehouse, says: “Many people don’t realise the full scope of aspects that need to be considered before a decision is made to enter the franchise world, or which franchise should be joined. There are important questions that prospective franchisees need to ask themselves and the franchisor before signing up for a new franchise opportunity. This will help ensure that they are as informed as possible and know their rights when dealing with franchisors.
For example, potential franchise owners need to consider whether they need security over and above their own cash contribution when seeking funding, what salary expectations they should have in franchise ownership, and whether their age and health will impact their franchise funding.
To help potential franchise owners make fully informed decisions, the Franchising 101 workshops will outline everything a qualified prospective buyer needs to consider before investing in a franchise opportunity. The sessions will give attendees an overview of a variety of franchising models; an in-depth look at the legalities of franchising by attorney Pieter Swanepoel; and beneficial discussions on how to evaluate and fund a franchise.
“These intensive workshops are designed to get entrepreneurs started, or growing in the world of franchising, without making costly business mistakes,” says Belinda Bradley, training director at SA Franchise Warehouse.
Attendees will also have an opportunity to discuss exciting franchise opportunities with some of South Africa’s best-known brands.
