    About This Episode

    If you want to grow your business, have you considered a Franchise model?

    Creating a franchise is a well-established business model for growth, but it's not a quick or easy route.

    Our Special Guest today, Rebecca Newenham has done just this and created a multi-award winning business, Get Ahead, which now has over 40 franchisees. Rebecca shares her experience of setting up the franchise, the pitfalls, the ideas and how to make it work.

    We also cover what to think about and look for if you want to start a business and think buying into a franchise as a franchisee could be the route for you. It's not all plain sailing, and there are some great pointers in the discussion.

    At the end there is a brainstorm on networking and what to look out for.

    Key Takeaway

    Franchising can be a great way to go if you want to take your business to the next level of growth. But it's not a simple route. There are lots of different aspects to consider, a load of preparation before you can launch, and the potential for some major, and costly, mishaps.

    Similarly, if you are thinking of buying into a franchise, a franchisee, there are many factors to explore and establish. Before you commit, make sure you know what you're getting and all of your ongoing obligations and restrictions.
