The Franchising Centre’s annual Conference and Supplier Showcase is a great event for franchisors, but over the years it has also helped support a very worthy cause. The Trussell Trust’s foodbank projects do fantastic work for families who find themselves in difficulty. You can see how important their work is here.

We have raised over £10,000 from ticket sales to our annual event and if you have ever attended, then thank you – you have helped.

Here is some more information about what is going to be our biggest and best Franchise Supplier Showcase and Conference yet. We are already taking bookings and expect it to be a sell out this year, particularly as it now qualifies for 150 Points towards the BFA’s QFP qualification.

Two Things

June 27th, 2016

What makes you feel good about your work? For us, it is helping real people achieve business success. And so, our heartfelt congratulations go to Paul Thompson and his team at Waterbabies on receiving the BFA Franchisor of The Year Award at the BFA Conference last week. (Watch “Kitchen Table to International Business”.)


Whilst we at The Franchising Centre were all elated at Waterbabies success, we were soon brought back to earth when we played our new video to the conference. Why? Because so many people came up to us afterwards and said “I didn’t know you did all of that for franchisors!”. If you are one of those that didn’t know how we can help you grow your business, you can watch the video here.

Best regards,

Brian Duckett Chairman, The Franchising Centre
