Four domiciliary care businesses will attend the British & International Franchise Exhibition next week to encourage aspiring franchisees to join their network.
In Home Care, Kare Plus, Right at Home UK and American care provider Visiting Angels, will gather at Olympia London (pictured) on January 31 to showcase their business models to prospective franchise partners.
They will join more than 100 other exhibitors at the event, including McDonald’s and Wiltshire Farm Foods, all of whom have been accredited by the British Franchise Association (bfa).
Visitors will also be able to attend a programme of seminars and Q&A sessions covering topics including how to choose, finance and run a franchise, how to franchise an existing business, and how to grow any type of venture.
Helen McCulloch, portfolio sales director for Venture Marketing Group, the organiser behind the exhibition, said: “The British & International Franchise Exhibition offers a two‐day hub of support and opportunity to aspiring and established franchisees alike.
“Whether you’re conducting initial research into franchising or seeking strategies for growth of your franchise portfolio, you’ll find the advice, contacts and franchise opportunities to propel you to your goals.”
Franchising currently contributes £17.2 billion to the UK economy, an increase of £2.6 billion since 2015.
Enjoying this growth are around 20,000 franchise owners, 93% of whom reported profitability in 2018, according to the 2018 bfa NatWest Franchise Survey.
The British & International Franchise Exhibition will take place at Olympia London on January 31 and February 1.
