Sydney Franchising Expo Success!

Visitors to the Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo in Sydney in August welcomed an incredible two days on the show floor.

Exhibitors and visitors were pleased to be back face to face and to get down to business. Franchise Ready used the Sydney Expo to promote 8 of their clients to prospective franchisees, including, Karen’s Diner, Harry’s Café de Wheels and Fitillion. “We have exhibited at Expos all over the world, the Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo team do it better than everyone else, well organised and outstanding customer service.”, said Doug Downer from Franchise Ready.

“I think it goes to show how vibrant and successful this industry really is,” says Exhibition Manager Fiona Stacey. “It’s a matter of finding the right people to help you on your journey – be they franchisors, lawyers, consultants, accountants or other advisors.”

“All those people are available at the Expo, and more than willing to answer all your questions,” she says. “Entering a franchise agreement is serious business, and it is crucial to do your research. The Franchising Expo is a great place to start, or dive deeper into a concept you’re considering.”

Choosing the right franchise is about matching your personality, skills, experience and motivation to a particular franchise. It's about finding a good fit between you and the business. “The expo was very well organised. I was in negotiations with a Franchisor prior to attending the expo, however, the expo has expanded my horizons to consider other businesses out there”, said Raymond Thompson.

The next Expo will be in Brisbane and will offer exciting concepts like Amber Tiles, Bedshed, Chatime, Clark Pools & Spas, Deckseal, Donut King, Dream Doors, Dymocks, Gelatissimo, Gutter-Vac, Kwik Kopy, Mad Mex, Poolwerx, Quest Apartments Hotels, Rams Financial Group, Roll’d, Soul Origin, Tax Store and Xpresso Mobile Café.

“We are thrilled to bring the Franchising Expo to Brisbane” says Fiona. Like its sister Expos in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney the Brisbane event will offer visitors a forum to compare and research a diverse range of franchise opportunities, with investment levels from under $10,000 to more than $500,000.

There will also be legal and financial advice to buy and set up your new business or franchise and the Franchise Council of Australia (FCA) will be on hand to provide information and answer any franchising queries.

One of the most popular features of the Franchising Expo is the free seminar series at the centre of the show. At the Brisbane show you can hear experienced Franchisees share their stories in the 'Conversations with franchisees' panel and learn more about franchising in the ‘Is franchising right for you’ session. These sessions are designed to educate, inform and motivate. Whatever your reason for becoming your own boss, the best possible start you can give yourself is knowledge.

Furthermore, visitors can attend the Start Your Own Business Workshop which runs on Saturday 15 October from 9am, delivering advice on business ownership, how to get started and what you need to know to take the leap.

Gain the freedom and flexibility of being your own boss with an established brand and support network behind you. Visit the show to explore a wide variety of franchises, advisors and business ideas, all under one roof. See details below to get your half-price ticket today!
