We're delighted to invite you to our Franchise Seminar 'A Growth Strategy for your Business' on Thursday 14 November.  

With a combined turnover of £17.2 billion from over 48,500 units of franchised businesses in the UK*, it’s not surprising that more and more businesses, across many different sectors, are turning to franchising as an effective and successful method of achieving growth.

NatWest, EMW Law and The Franchising Centre are delivering a seminar for business owners, giving a detailed introduction to franchising including:

  • What is franchising and what are the benefits of a franchise model as a growth strategy?
  • Would franchising be right for your business?
  • What does ‘good’ franchising look like?
  • What are the legal requirements and implications when you franchise your business?
  • How can the costs of your franchise growth strategy be funded?
  • Q&As

Whether you have already considered franchising your business or if you want to learn more about how we could be part of your business plan for the future, we welcome you to join us.
