Our very first Franchise Discovery Day took place virtually on Wednesday 17th March 2021, hosted by presenter and correspondent, Ben Thompson.
Representatives from Driver Hire, FASTSIGNS, Home Instead, Minster Cleaning, Revive! and X-Press Legal Services joined to discuss the sector, as well as talk about each of their individual franchise opportunities.
The 6 franchisors were joined by Pip Wilkins from the British Franchise Association, who spoke about the franchising industry in the UK and the role of the association. Ken Braddock, Franchise Director at the HSBC also joined to speak more widely about the financial aspects of franchising, and how banks look favourably on the sector when it comes to funding.
The event was a great opportunity for those interested in the sector to learn more, whether this be about how to run a franchise or the funding opportunities available, or to learn more about the specific opportunities from each of the franchisors.
