Franchise Marketing & Development
Why Franchise Your Business Instead of Just Expanding?
A lot of people who have started a successful business and realize that there only option is to expand in order to be able to service more customers, fill more orders, etc. are faced with the decision of expanding or franchising. Why would you want to franchise rather than just opening additional locations or moving to larger facilities? There are a few reasons and, as established specialists within the franchising industry, we can help you sort it all out.
The truth is: sometimes it makes sense to expand and sometimes it makes sense to franchise. We can help you tell which is better for your growing organization. Getting a larger facility or opening more locations is more expensive. The bigger an organization gets, the more convoluted the hierarchy and management scheme. Building a franchise tends to be faster and the dedication and loyalty that sprouts from franchisors is something that otherwise can’t be bought.
Any business owner—either those who have failed or those who have been successful—can tell you that it is never enough to have a great product or great service. You need a winning strategy—one that is going to take you from the early stages of development and be scalable to a successful business’s growing needs.

Business Mastermind Workshop
Designed for leaders in the business world to gain insights into what’s changing and receive key action points that you can implement into your business today! There’s are only a few certainties in life: death, taxes… and change. And the rate of change is speeding up—rapidly. Several factors are causing this acceleration: the expansion of technology and knowledge, globalisation and the changing demographic majority.
One Major Key is the Changing Demographic:
The millennial (GenY) generation (those born in the 1977 – 1990s) are the largest to enter the workforce since the baby boomer generation. Nurtured through a different era, this generation has a different value system, and they will play a key role in the changing nature of workplace dynamics. Fact: Did you know that by 2018 GenY will outspend baby boomers and already play a key part in shaping the business world today, are you ready?
Leadership over the past 50 years has been based on the premise that the organization is purely an economic entity. The priority was to develop structures, set controls and leverage capital as effectively as possible. This was accomplished through pyramids of hierarchies performing rigidly narrow tasks within clear guidelines. This is quick changing and today, the speed of change demands a completely different business leader: one who can rapidly adapt to change, requiring constant involvement in skill development. They will need to be expert in human capital, not just financial capital; master emotional intelligence, not just economic competence; know how to collaborate, not just control; lead through networks, not hierarchies; and align people through meaning and purpose, not structures and spreadsheets.
