In his teaser video for our 2016 Franchise Conference and Supplier Showcase, James Ashford has thrown down the gauntlet – “Tell me about a problem you are having with a franchisee and I will show you how to get them onside.”

So, here’s your chance – let me have details by return email of a difficult franchisee or group of franchisees and let’s challenge James to tell us how he would get them onside and pulling in the same direction as you.  Personally, having been in franchising for a long time, I can’t wait for this. All responses will be treated in the STRICTEST CONFIDENCE and discussed anonymously, so email me now with details of a problem franchisee and let’s put James to the test!

International Expansion

You might find this an interesting article from the British Council, about UK independent schools expanding internationally.

The main points are:

  1. There is a large and growing demand for a UK style education from the burgeoning middle classes in Asia, the Middle East and other regions
  2. An increasing number of UK independent schools are opening overseas campuses to meet this demand
  3. Demand far outweighs supply and there is a long term opportunity for UK schools to expand overseas

No doubt you are well aware of this, but if you want your school to be a part of this trend, where do you start? With us. For over twenty years, we have been guiding organisations through the process of duplicating their UK success in other countries. We do this for all types of organisations including “Not for profit” organisations and we are currently dealing with a number of UK independent schools.

If you would like to have a chat about the current opportunity for UK schools and how we can help you, please contact me by calling me on 01904 561598 or by emailing me here.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Updating Your Operations Manual

September 20th, 2016

Teaching Granny to Suck Eggs!

I know you already know the importance of regularly updating your franchise operations manual, but bear with me. There are many reasons to do it, but these three probably top the list:

  1. Your manual is the operational blueprint that everyone in your organisation is supposed to follow – if the blueprint isn’t right, then…
  2. Your manual is the second point of reference in most legal disputes
  3. Your manual is an important factor in how new prospective franchisees (have been told) judge you

The problem is of course, finding someone in your business with the time, desire and skills to do it. Well that’s where we come in – we love writing franchise operations manuals. Yes there is a cost, but what is the current and potential future cost of not doing it?

To get a quote for updating your manual, call me now on 01904 561598 or email me here.

Farrah Rose Flies the Flag in Las Vegas

Microsoft Retail Conference

 

 

 

 

Farrah Rose of The Franchising Centre had her expertise in international franchising recognised recently when she was chosen to speak at the Microsoft retail conference in Las Vegas.

The Retail Realm Partner and User Conference draws partners and users of Microsoft’s retail software from all around the globe and gives their senior management the chance to get direct feedback about their products from users and resellers. With her unrivalled experience in retail and international franchising, Rose was asked to address the audience on international growth and new routes to market.

Rose commented “Apart from the honour of being chosen to represent the global franchise industry at this high level event, it was a fascinating insight into how a major corporate like Microsoft operates. Here we had senior management meeting face to face with their customers to address specific questions and find solutions.”

Rose has over thirty years’ experience in international franchising working with companies large and small to guide their international growth. She can be contacted at The Franchising Centre
