About the event

Find an established brand with a proven track record - and become your own boss!

If you are considering a change in career direction - you've become disillusioned with your job, because of redundancy, retirement, or you're just looking for a better quality of life - a visit to The British Franchise Exhibition in Manchester should be your next step.

Starting a business with a proven business model and established brand has historically been shown to be more successful in a recession than starting your own independent business.

Franchised businesses have weathered the recessional storm extremely well, which we should not be surprised about if we look at how franchising has proven itself over the years.

The combination of the wider business support, training and economies of scale, with the determination, enterprising nature and local business focus makes franchise businesses a very robust offering.

This year has highlighted this particularly well with success rates of franchise businesses not dropping even in the recent recessionary environment.
