Have you always dreamt of being your own boss or being responsible for your own income, but never quite been sure how to do it? Maybe you feel like you need some extra support in the structuring of a business or think that you would miss a peer support network that being employed gives you. If this sounds like you then maybe franchising is for you.
Franchising is a very specific business structure that is becoming increasingly popular. It is easiest to think of franchising as a kind of licensing. It allows an individual to run a company of their own, but using another company’s brand name, trademarks and suppliers.
