We interview successful franchisees and share their stories with you to make you aware of the various business opportunities and help you decide which franchise is right for you!
Hi, we are Sim Bachal and Jessica Dhillon. We own and operate multiple franchise locations. Owning a franchise is exciting and challenging. Just a few years ago we wanted to own a business but didn’t know where to start. For that reason, franchising seemed to be the only option for us as we could learn quickly from many different franchises the business opportunities that were available to us. Based on our budget, desired lifestyle, and interest we shortlisted a few franchises and decided to research those options thoroughly before we committed our time, effort, and money. We spent hundreds of hours speaking with franchisees regarding their experience with owning and operating those franchises. What we learned from these conversations helped us decide the right franchise for us. However, all of this took time, effort, and money. Our goal here is not only to save you that time, effort, and money but also to provide you with all the relevant information about different franchises.
What is Franchising?
Franchising is not a business itself, but a way of doing business.
It is essentially a marketing concept - an innovative method of distributing goods and services. It is also an extremely successful and rapidly growing aspect of Australia's small business sector.
Franchising is a business relationship in which the franchisor (the owner of the business providing the product or service) assigns to independent people (the franchisees) the right to market and distribute the franchisor's goods or service, and to use the business name for a fixed period of time. The International Franchise Association defines franchising as a "continuing relationship in which the franchisor provides a licensed privilege to do business, plus assistance in organising training, merchandising and management in return for a consideration from the franchisee".
