FOCUS ON

HOME BASED / FLEXIBLE WORKING This is a seminar for people who are looking for flexibility over high profits. Entrepreneurs, mumpreneurs who want to build a business to fit around their lifestyle. This is not to suggest that flexibility in working hours always means working part time, resulting in a part time income - you may work 50 hours a week, earning handsomely. It just doesn’t matter when and where you do it. Attend this session to find out more, the available options and the differing levels of involvement.

A series of seminars, each focusing on a different franchise sector. Comprising of; • • • • • •

A brief introducing into franchising The characteristics of the sector Investment levels and expected return Skills needed Common pitfall’s The day-to-day running’s.

RETAIL / RESTAURANTS 10 years ago, if you asked a man on the street what a franchise was, the chances are he would give a fast food chain or a shop as an example. And indeed, some of the most recognisable and profitable franchise brands would fit his description. Find out about investing in a food or retail opportunity – and why the brand in this market is so important. A franchised coffee brand will almost always draw a larger crowd to that of an independent coffee shop - find out how and why, learn the ins and outs of this profitable sector.

BUSINESS TO BUSINESS The UK B2B franchise market has seen significant growth in recent years. The sector covers a multitude of business services – from helping clients grow to reducing their costs – the market covers consultancy, marketing, internet and much more. Hear from a franchisor who has helped dozens of professionals make the transition from corporate employment to self employment. Learn the essentials of this sector to win repeat business, and how you can utilise previous experiences in a proven business model.

MANAGEMENT If you are a ‘people person’ and enjoy managing a team, this sector is one to consider Management franchises come in all shapes and sizes; from children’s nurseries to training centres. If you know how to run a business and motivate people, the skills needed to create a successful business within this sector are essentially the same. Learn about the range of opportunities within this sector. Learn from a franchisor who has helped individuals reach independence by utilising their natural skills with people.

£

LOW INVESTMENT Low-cost franchises are those that typically cost £15000 or less, in many instances the investment required is less than £5000. Many are home-based or online and command very little in the way of operational costs. Attend this seminar to find out more about the opportunities available within this sector and the types of franchises within this market.

4 | THE FRANCHISE SHOW SEPTEMBER 2012 www.thefranchiseshow.co.uk

HIGH INVESTMENT High investment suggests high rewards, making this sector extremely attractive to the ambitious franchisee. Many of the large multi-national corporates are in fact franchises. At this level in the franchising market, the potential for significant financial gain clearly exists. Like any business, success can only be achieved through hard work and following a business system. Learn about this market, the levels of investment needed and the achievable returns within this solid, money-making sector. September will see international brands from the USA, France, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Australia and Canada.

CHILDREN / EDUCATION The services provided by franchises within this sector do not suffer from the vagaries of the economic climate. People will always pay for their children to be safely looked after whilst at work, or if their child requires additional help with their education. And what’s more this is repeat business. The franchisor will help with all of the necessary knowledge and expertise needed to run your business safely and legally. This seminar will provide you with market insight and the knowledge to choose, start and run a franchise within this sector.

Alongside the hottest brands from the UK, we welcome brands from the USA, France, Spain, Italy, Australia, Canada, even Brazil – here for the first time and searching for a businesspeople just like you.

We’re really excited about all the international brands here this September, and who could blame us? It makes for a unique show – a collection of brands you won’t find anywhere else in the world.

Centros Unico is at the forefront of advanced beauty treatments, specialising in laser hair removal and a wide range of other quality facial and body treatments, offering high quality treatments without the need for deep pockets. From 2008, every store opened still trades profitably today.

They will be searching for Master Franchise license holders, ready to take the brand onwards into the UK and Europe.

THE SAFEST WAY TO START A BUSINESS JUST GOT SAFER.

FRANCHISE RESALE

We all know that starting a business always carries a risk, whatever your industry, however you start. Buying into a franchise system is seen by many as the safest way to get going in business, but 2/3 of all franchises bought in the last few years were not franchise systems. They were in fact units – operational franchises with premises, a customer base, turnover, and all the rest of it already in place.

New to The Franchise Show this September, The Franchise Resale feature is your chance to get involved and find out more about this route to franchise ownership. You’ll even discover franchise units for sale within every area of the industry – all in one place, ready and waiting for the right entrepreneur to come in and take the reins. Whether you’re considering a future in business for the first time, or you want a straightforward way to expand your portfolio, Franchise Resale should be high on your list of mustattend features this September. In addition to having experts on hand to guide and advise on

• • • • • • •

the most important issues of the buying and selling process, there will be a chance to take a look at some franchise businesses on offer at the show – all pinned to the giant Franchise Resales wall – where you might find some businesses no longer available as systems, only resales. Put simply, if you’re searching for a franchise, you have to consider a resale. And Franchise Resale is the place to find it. The feature presents an unmissable opportunity to gather contacts, obtain information, and find the franchise to match your ambition and budget.

PHIL VICKERY JOINS SURELET STAND 635

A FRANCHISE VISION Managing Director, Colin Poole, said: “Having Phil on board is the icing on the cake as far as I’m concerned and I’m looking forward with a refreshed sense of optimism to the future of this great company. “We have a vision here at SureLet to become recognised nationally by our competitors and peers as a dominant and dynamic lettings franchise company and we’re going to achieve it. “The reason people choose SureLet is because we offer something unique and more appealing compared to our competitors. “Our franchise model is a fresh approach to the lettings agent market place as we have a dedicated team of property managers (the Property Management Centre) who will provide services including legal documents, references, credit checks and more as part of your package.

Rugby and cooking legend Phil Vickery MBE, has joined marketleading lettings agency franchise, SureLet Ltd as a Director.

“This model allows the franchisees to spend more time networking and building their agency rather than doing the paperwork.”

After a successful career in rugby, starting his own clothing range, Raging Bull and winning the coveted 2011 Celebrity MasterChef title, Phil is now ready for a new challenge. Phil said:

SureLet will be attending The Franchise Show on the 7th and 8th September – Phil Vickery will be attending for you to talk to about his new business venture with SureLet.

“I’ve been aware of SureLet for a number of years now as I’m a close friend of the Managing Director, Colin Poole. “I can hold my hands up and

I’ve been looking for my next long-term challenge and when the opportunity to become a director for such a fresh vibrant company came about I jumped at it.

say I know nothing about the lettings industry, but I’m taking on this role looking to soak up the skills, experience and market-leading knowledge of the SureLet team and hopefully impart my skills in the business world into their model.” SureLet Franchising was set up in 2003 and since then has had great success in the industry with around 24 franchises across the UK from as far South as Exeter and as far North as Manchester.
