Drive Your Way To Success

This Autumn, uncover the many benefits of franchising at the industry’s flagship event.

With job satisfaction in the UK having reached record lows recently, 1 over 20 per cent of employees are searching for alternative ways to work. This news comes as The National Franchise Exhibition returns to the NEC, Birmingham, on 13 & 14 October, offering a host of new career paths for those looking for greater fulfilment.

For those who particularly dislike the office environment, vehicle-based franchises offer the perfect solution. Not only do vehicle-based businesses offer significant growth opportunities for ambitious entrepreneurs, they also provide a number of top perks job seekers traditionally look for in a career.

James Crossman, a franchisee with Greensleeves in West Yorkshire, comments: “Since joining the franchise, I have a better work/life balance. There are some long days and some short days, but my working hours are mine to manage.”

Franchisees also have the opportunity to get away from the traditional ‘desk job’ and become an active part of the community. James adds: “A major factor in the enjoyment of my job is that the view from my office window is different every day.”

For many budding entrepreneurs, the prospect of building up a business from scratch is a daunting concept. However, many franchisees that have invested in a vehicle-based franchise find that it is a straightforward and hassle-free process. Darren Morris, a franchisee with Lawnkeeper, comments: “If you are initially starting out on your own, then a vehicle-based franchise is a good way to be able to get your business up and running quite quickly. There is no better way to market your business than by having a moving advert on your van and being seen out and about working by loads of different people.”

From repairs to property management, The National Franchise Exhibition will host a vast range of vehicle-based franchises to suit every need. Brands include Zero Dry Time, Mac Tools and Agency Express, all of which offer franchise opportunities to suit all budgets.

The National Franchise Exhibition is the only event of its kind to be fully supported by the British Franchise Association (bfa), ensuring that all exhibiting brands have met the strict accreditation criteria set by the industry’s sole regulatory body.

The National Franchise Exhibition takes place at the NEC in Birmingham, on 13 & 14 October. Visitors can gain free entry by registering online with code FED1 at www.FranchiseTickets.co.uk.
