FranchiseShow247 launched in August 2020 and its innovative approach immediately began to generate interest.
Our aim is to bring together the Franchising market by enabling a single community that showcases providers from across the globe and allows them to connect, network, engage and share their knowledge in a completely virtual space. Designed as a virtual platform that is online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The platform has shown great momentum over the last 10 months, and we now have over 40 franchise exhibitors as part of the community, connecting with like-minded companies and showcasing their business and continues to add new exhibitors weekly.
As of 2018, Natwest Survey stated the franchise industry globally was worth £17.2 billion and has proven it has a lot to offer to the UK economy.
Your initial thought of franchise companies are big global established companies, such as McDonalds, Subway or Starbucks. We don’t often associate everyday businesses with franchising, when in fact, 80% of the UK franchise market is UK-owned and developed. The franchise industry has been growing stronger over time, and the number of franchised businesses has reached around 48,000 units, with around 710,000 people employed within the sector.
