FranchisingWorks is working closely with local employment support agencies such as the Jobcentre Plus, as well as the UK franchise community, to help start up new franchise businesses across the UK.
Whether you’re unemployed, working part time, on a temporary contract or in career transition then our workshops are designed for you:
Free ‘Find out about Franchising’ workshops are held roughly each month, these mainly run in Merseyside & Manchester but are accessible remotely throughout the UK. These provide a thorough overview about what franchising is, its advantages and disadvantages, funding to get started, our support, how to research opportunities and next steps – it is the essential first step to exploring franchising. For workshop dates and locations, please see below.
Our ‘Introduction to Approved Franchisors’ workshop then provides you with a thorough taster of the variety of businesses who are approved on the FranchisingWorks programme, and therefore which we can support and provide support in accessing funding. We tailor the workshop to attendees, providing you all of the information that you need to see which franchise inspires you. We can then help you to make contact with those of interest to get the ball rolling.
Upcoming Franchisee First events:
Our ‘Franchisee First’ networking events bring together franchisees with soon-to-be franchisees to help build partnerships, trade and share best practice across the franchise industry. They also feature fantastic speakers to help franchisees to build their business.
