There is much to know and learn about the business format franchise operating model. Much can be gained by reading quality publications and also by attending franchise specific events, however to benefit fully a ‘one-on-one’ support structure will accelerate the take up of real life experiences and the ‘how to’ that is ever so important when first entering the sector. You cannot know enough at the start, let alone on the journey.
With 30 plus years in the franchise sector across all areas of the business operating and relationship model, John’s acute appreciation for and understanding of franchising has been immense.
Because franchising is different to all other relationship and structural business models during the work undertaken with start-up franchise systems there is always collaboration with other service providers to the development of a model. Over many years we have introduced a diverse range of other skills from our network of providers and in particular from the following professions:
- Specialised franchise lawyers
- Marketing and advertising specialists
- Branding consultants
- Demographic consultancies
- IT system and web designers
Our experience is that all service providers involved require a sound understanding of the practical management culture and franchise specific systems that blend together in a successful franchise model. This critically essential collaboration structure has over a long period of time and across many business types and operating models, enabled our knowledge base in these areas to expand in a complimentary fashion alongside those skills we apply to the business of our clients. Bringing a sound mix of this overall knowledge bank to all clients has proven to be somewhat unique and of special value to the business. All clients of Franchise Australia benefit from this considerable and valuable experience.
