Whether you are a franchisor or franchisee, or simply looking for a way to bring both sides together, our network of 110 offices across Australia and New Zealand has your needs covered.
Franchising can be a smart way of turning a small business into a national or international chain. However, running a franchise-model business also has its pitfalls.
At Findex, we have the expertise and experience to identify business opportunities for franchisors. We provide specialist advice and services, tailored to your requirements, to assist you to drive your franchise business, add value and grow your returns. We also understand the risks of franchising, such as the speed at which a franchisor can fall into financial hardship through poor business structure, lack of cost control, ineffective management or inefficient systems.
By taking a ‘whole-of-business’ approach that encompasses the business and regulatory needs of franchisors and franchisees, we deliver solutions targeting faster, more sustainable growth and better business outcomes for all parties.
