Melbourne Franchising Expo Offers Something For Everyone Melbourne is set to host the final Franchising Expo for 2017 at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre on Saturday 26 – Sunday 27 August, with a huge range of exciting business ideas on offer.

A highlight of the Small Business Festival Victoria running throughout August, the Franchising Expo will showcase more than 100 franchisors, advisors, and industry insiders ready to assist people to start or grow their own business. “The Melbourne show is traditionally the biggest one for the year and visitors will find a wide range of business ideas – from lucrative food and beverage concepts and flexible home services franchises, to innovative ideas such as digital photo booths, cryotherapy and app development,”

says Event Manager Fiona Stacey. “In 2017 we are celebrating 30 years as Australia’s one-stop-shop for franchising,” she adds. “This is the only place where you can meet face to face with such a wide range of franchisors, consultants, suppliers and advisors from industry and government.” Damian Paull, CEO of the Franchise Council of Australia (FCA), is a strong supporter of the Franchising Expo. “It provides an opportunity where people can have a conversation about franchising, where they can learn whether franchising might be right for them, where they can be inspired by meeting with others in the franchising community,” he explains. “By participating in the Expos, the FCA gains a better understanding of the needs of the franchising community and really shows us where we can further help and implement change for a continuing prosperous sector,” adds Paull. “It directly puts us where we need to be, in front of the community as a peak body for the franchise sector.” The free seminar series promises some fascinating presenters, plus panel sessions

presented by the FCA featuring successful franchisees, and introductory panels discussing “Is Franchising Right for You?” Fiona Stacey says the diversity of franchises and price entry points is a huge drawcard for the Franchising Expo. “Some visitors come with specific businesses in mind, while others are open to new ideas, in industries they had never previously considered,” she says. “We also attract entrepreneurs wishing to grow their business through the franchising model. They come because the Franchising Expo is the country’s leading event to find information and inspiration to start, build or grow your own business.”

Fair Funding For Small Businesses For too long in Australia you as a small business owner and entrepreneur have been stifled in your growth ambitions with a lack of access to fair finance. The banks primarily need a first mortgage on real estate property and when you run out of homes or don’t have a home to offer the funds dry up. Even when there may be a fabulous business opportunity to acquire a new business, build out an existing one or you simply need more working capital to run your business more efficiently. Most non-bank lenders and private finance companies have very stringent terms for short-term loans at exorbitant interest rates and opaque fee structures with a promise of quick funding that makes the cost of finance simply unaffordable. ThinCats is Australia’s first Peer-to-Business (P2B) lending platform offering a unique

solution. The platform connects you to smart, sophisticated and vetted ThinCats investors who understand the characteristics of small business lending and are prepared to back your courage, your business expertise and track record of generating positive cash flows. These investors lending fractional amounts across a portfolio of SME loans to fund your business needs whilst diversifying their risk. They also know that if the cost of the finance and the terms are fair and flexible that it’s a winwin for both parties, with borrowers paying competitive rates and lenders earning attractive returns without the banks in the middle.

A Simple Business That Makes Exceptional Income Gutter Guard is a very lucrative business (if you know what you are doing). Australian owned business Gutter Knight has developed a very unique yet simple business system not seen before that you can either do all the work yourself or simply sub-contract it out and still make good money. Seeing a big gap in the market for both quality and service, Gutter Knight now seen as the market leaders was established in early 2012, providing high quality ‘gutter protections systems’ for both residential and commercial applications. Gutter protection systems commonly referred to as ‘gutter guard’ are used for keeping leaves and debris out of guttering, used in fire zones, vermin proofing, keeping rain water tanks clean and many more uses. Gutter guard is being used more often and fast gaining popularity because of its many benefits. A growing number of local council areas if deemed to be in a ‘fire

zone’ building codes ask for installation of an approved fire guard system to protect the homes, certified fire rated gutter guard is installed to comply. With ongoing changing laws and regulations for OH&S some building maintenance personnel are no longer allowed on the roof to clean gutters, so these buildings require either ongoing maintenance cleaning from an external company or installation of gutter guard. It is the same for rental properties, if a tenant cleans the gutters and has an accident the landlord is potentially liable, smart real estates and landlords are now seeing the benefits of installing gutter guard on these properties for both protecting themselves and adding value and reducing maintenance costs. There are approximately 9 million dwellings within Australia and is fair to say majority of these all have guttering. Gutter Knight has put together an attractive franchise system on offer for

under $50,000 which includes all the equipment you need, professional custom built trailer, smart marketing systems with ‘all done for you ready’ templates, sales and product training, also they help you ‘hit the ground running’ and making money from day one and ongoing. When asked “how much money can a Gutter Knight person earn?” the answer was very interesting; “imagine if you sit at home all day watching TV, what sort of level of success do you think you will achieve? Those who put the effort in to make it happen reap the rewards and in this business there are generous returns to be made, the minimum is $100,000 a year and we have one that does close to $800,000 a year”.

Gutter Knight is taking applications from motivated people so if you would like to find out more contact Brian on 1300 875 594 or visit

Franchise Resales as a Measure of System Performance by Jason Gehrke more than this, there may be other factors to consider, such as the following:

Time on Market

Jason Gehrke When looking at the health of a franchise network, the quantity and nature or resales of existing outlets can provide several useful indicators. The first of these is the proportion of total existing outlets available for sale at any one time. (For ease of reference, this will be referred to as the resale percentage from here on). If the resale percentage seems excessively high, this will indicate problems such as a lack of profitability, a loss of confidence in the business model or the franchisor, or other issues in a network that can cause a stampede to exit in the same manner that a fire will cause the occupants to abandon a building.

The resale percentage of a network can begin to climb if it takes longer for existing businesses to sell, particularly as more businesses are listed for sale before existing listings are sold. This Time on Market indicator may increase as a result of excessive prices sought by vendors, by financing problems among buyers, a change in the market itself, or a flooding of the market by listings triggered by changes in the franchise business model or ownership or management of the franchisor. The time a property takes to sell has been a common measure of the buoyancy of the residential real estate markets for several years, and increasingly is now being applied to understand the sales cycle of existing businesses. Time on market is particularly affected by price, and can range from days to months, and even years for some businesses.

Sale Price Multiples Alternatively, if the resale percentage is very low, this is likely to indicate a high degree of satisfaction with the business. To calculate the resale percentage of a network, divide the number of all existing outlets available for sale by the total number of outlets in the network, and multiply by 100. Average resale percentages will differ from one industry to another, and from one network to another. For example, resale percentages in blue-collar home services franchises where the work typically performed by the franchisee is physically demanding can be expected to be higher than the resale percentages of say a whitecollar management franchise. Likewise, the resale percentage may differ significantly between two franchise networks which operate in the same industry. For example, Coffee Franchise A may have a lower resale percentage than in Coffee Franchise B because franchisees in network A may be more profitable than those in network B. Resale percentages often range between five and 25%. If the resale percentage is 14 Australian Business For Sale ÂŽ

There are two types of sale price multiples to consider when assessing the resale of an existing franchise. The first is the profit multiple used to measure prices of both independent and franchised businesses. The profit multiple method can see business sale prices range from as little as one times profit to five or six times profit, depending on the nature of the business and the industry in which it operates (and assumes of course, that the business is actually profitable). Another price multiple measure is a comparison of the sale price of an established franchise with that of a greenfield (ie, yet to commence trading) outlet. If resales are sold for consistently lower prices than greenfield outlets in the same network, the network may well have fundamental problems it needs to address among its existing franchisees before it can hope to recruit others. Similarly, if the average price multiple of existing outlets are greater than for a greenfield site, then these businesses should be expected to be profitable and delivering a capitable gain to their sellers.

Tenure of selling franchisees Another factor than can indicate the health of a franchise network is the average tenure of franchisees who list their businesses for sale relative to the initial term of the franchise. If, for example, franchisees are listing their businesses on average half-way through the initial term of the franchise, this may indicate issues around profitability, the business model, confidence in the franchisor, etc, subject to some of the other issues listed previously. In other words, the longer a franchisee has operated the business before offering it for sale, the more likely it is that the franchisee has been satisfied with the performance of the business, and hence the more desirable it may be in the eyes of a potential buyer.

Conclusion Potential franchisees who explore these issues in detail when undertaking their due diligence will be better-equipped to make more informed decisions about the future viability of their investment. This article does not represent an exhaustive list of measures to assess resales as an indicator of system health, but can be a key starting point for observers of the sector to monitor system performance, as well as for franchisors themselves to better understand their points of differentiation in a highly competitive franchise marketplace.

Some of the other highlights of the 2016 include:

• 35% of work comes from existing customers and referrals; • 10% of leads come from the distinctive GroutPro van signage;

• 21 franchisees, partners and managers undertook the GroutPro training course in 2016; • 5 franchisees were showcased in their local and regional newspapers; • 4 appearances on Chanel 10’s Healthy Homes TV showcasing the services and benefits of becoming a GroutPro franchisee; GroutPro services are very personal in nature and it’s only when you speak to their customers that you understand why repeat business is very high. Many franchisees barely get out the front door to be asked by the homeowner, when can they come back to do the other bathroom! Personal referrals, where one customer is so happy with the outcome, are also a secret to the GroutPro success – happy customers tell all their friends and family. The relationship skills of franchisees is another key to running a successful business. It is important to remember

that communication, attention to detail and delivering in full on time, is fundamental in building a strong brand that demonstrates quality in all aspects of the business. Customers are often overwhelmed by the results achieved by GroutPro as well as the professionalism of the franchise owners. From a customer’s perspective, there is no higher level of service than having a tradesman turn up on time,

be able to give a detailed analysis on the problem, recommend the right solution to fix it, then perform the work with skill and care. If you are a motivated individual or a husband and wife team, with an eye for detail and like meeting people, then GroutPro IS the business for you. GroutPro is interested in men and women who have dreamt of starting a business for themselves but don’t want to do it alone. The next Franchisee Training course will be in September 2017 with an additional course to be held in November.

Become Part of The Solution Australia is in the grip of an escalating drug epidemic. Did you know that 70% of illegal drug users are employed2 out of 3 users find it difficult to abstain for a whole day and top-up at work…and in 80% of serious workplace accidents involving drugs or alcohol the injured people are innocent non-users. These statistics are just the tip of the iceberg. Drugs are ruining businesses and destroying peoples’ lives. Governments and authorities don’t have effective answers to reverse the situation, however, one organisation does. Drug-Safe Communities. It has a 16 year track record of creating safer and happier families, neighbourhoods and workplaces by making them drug-safe. Established by anti-drug crusader Michael White, the Drug-Safe Communities franchise opportunity is very unique. Michael is very aware of the seriousness of the drug problem facing society. When his business partner died from a heroin overdose Michael lost everything. It was this tragedy which led to him creating this business. He developed a practical and proven solution and every

‘sale’ (writing policy, running preventative workshops, and pre-employment and blanket drug testing) changes lives. Franchisees have the satisfaction of making a significant difference in their local community and one day leaving behind a long-term legacy. Drug-Safe Communities calls this unique benefit “Profitability With Purpose.” You only have to watch the media for a week to know that Australia’s multibillion dollar drug problem is widespread. This means that there are massive opportunities for ongoing repeat business for Drug-Safe Communities franchisees in order to keep their communities drug-safe.

and passion of its franchisees. As well as having a founder with so many years of industry experience, the franchisees are provided with a wealth of support from a group of industry experts who understand the importance of coaching, mentoring and business growth. Franchisees are treated as valued business partners. The whole team learns and grows together. In addition, franchisees are safe in the knowledge that this is a business based on innovation. It was the first business of its type in Australia to be certified by NATA. The first to introduce mobile testing. And, the first to establish an ASQA training Academy.

Drug-Safe Communities is a mature business. Since 2000 it has pioneered and fine tuned the services required to make an environment drug-safe. They are tried and tested. When Michael realised that the accelerating drug problem required a different business model in order to be able to reach people in all parts of Australia he decided that the most effective method was to expand the business via franchising. Michael calls this a “Franchisee First” business. He knows that a great franchise system is built upon the financial success

In light of recent news of record-breaking drug busts, along with the Federal Government’s Budget stating that welfare recipients will be drug-tested, interest in the franchise potential of Drug-Safe Communities has dramatically escalated. If you want to make your world a better place, and to be part of the solution, learn more about this dynamic Drug-Safe Communities franchise opportunity today.

The Care and Grooming of Your Manager By Bob Lyon I have talked to a lot of business owners and one thing is very clear: when it comes to creating an environment for managers and other staff to flourish, most owners just don't get it. We, as business owners have not stepped up to the idea that managing is a profession. Much of the population would rather go to the dentist than deal with certain businesses. Many think they score just above a collection of attorneys when it comes to image. Don't shoot the messenger! I certainly do not believe that stereotype is real or deserved, but rather that most businesses and shops are fair, trustworthy and professional. You have to admit though, when the media needs a story they go after some rouge tradie, the automotive industry or try to find some roaches in a restaurant kitchen. For now, let me climb down off of my soapbox and discuss the things we need to do to ensure our managers have the right environment to be the type of managers that all of us in business need. Leaders lead, and people will follow a dynamic leader. I'm not saying you have to be General Patton. There are plenty of people that followed Gandhi, and I don't think that he had to yell much. Leadership is a frame of mind and needs to be built within ourselves and our mangers. The old phrase is "the speed of the leader is the speed of the team," but the standards have to be set so that everyone understands what’s required. Many times I have talked to owners who are unhappy with their managers, but the managers are unaware of the true issues. Too often "sea gull owners" swoop in and unload on the manager, who in turn unloads on the employees. Clear-cut goals, standards and expectations that have been developed with the involvement of everyone in the business eliminate this negative behaviour and create the proper environment.

Praise Your Manager We hear it time and again - we need to praise our employees; but we fail, many times, to listen. Almost everyone invests some amount of their self-image in their

26 Australian Business For Sale ®

job. When we praise our managers when they do well, they will learn to praise the staff and the amount of positive feedback increases the positive self-image everyone gets from the job. Make people care about their job and watch how the results grow. When we do have to correct some action or behaviour, do it in private. The need for positive correction is essential to grow a manager. If you are candid and honest with them in an effort to help them grow, they will love you. If you save it all up for one annual review, they will hate you because you gave them the feeling during the year you were happy with everything they did. What you want from your manager may not be what was important at their last job. They might not even know what you want and that is totally your fault. When there is a lack of clear-cut expectations, most people will perform based on the expectations they have come to know in the past. Have you given them the tools needed to measure the performance of the shop? Do you measure and set standards for daily sales, technician productivity and customer satisfaction? If not, how will they be able to read your mind and give you the results that you need or want? If you are reading this and are not sure what I am talking about, then you need guidance to become the leader first. Don't worry, it is not a disease. Even CEOs of the biggest companies have "coaches" to help them through.

Pay Them Correctly A tough topic for many owners is how much to pay a manager and how to set up the pay plan. A set salary, without any incentives, will not reward the best mangers and will encourage apathy, where we settle for the results that we get. Not many people are money motivated, but money sure does help pay the bills. A pay schedule based only on sales can result in high sales but low net profit. Too much emphasis on sales alone can lead to discounting to get the sale and an unprofitable shop. In addition, never talk about the average sale unless you include shop productivity, customer count and margins. If you want $500 per sale, any manager can

do that; but they will often turn away customer enquiries and small sales that are the seeds of the future. A pay plan that rewards sales and gross profit margins along with high customer satisfaction bonuses will result in a profitable business with happy customers. The owner needs to know how much they need to be able to make to keep the business running and provide the return on their investment they expect. Remember you have to provide a living wage for the area you are in. If the business is not producing enough to be able to do that, then you cannot afford a manager - yet. The right pay plan is just one more way that we can help motivate the manager and staff to produce the exceptional experience that will ensure customers return and bring new ones in.

Learn to Lead Managing a current management staff, creating a new management staff or acting in that management role yourself is a complex blending of many disciplines. The most important issue to resolve is the purpose of mission that provides a clear vision of where you want to be. The tools that you will need to get there, the training that you will need to provide or learn yourself and the shape your organisation will eventually take all depend on your ability to lead. Your leadership, with compassion and uncompromising attention to your business goals is what will make the difference in your organisation. You have a rare opportunity that most people do not appreciate, in that you are shaping the lives and futures of those around you. I advise you to lay the groundwork well for your success and for those whose lives you touch.
