About Us

Why Brian Keen and his team of experts?

Some people we work with have frustratedly come to us because they’ve tried to go it alone and unfortunately,
they’ve missed vital steps essential to franchising well.

We believe you need to methodically cover all the details of a franchise path in a particular order.
This saves you time, effort and money, which is why we tailor our process to effectively work for you.

We‘d love to help

The team at Franchise Simply is made up of highly experienced business specialists, each with expertise in the different franchise areas which generally need to be modified for success.

We have assisted dozens and dozens of businesses become franchised, whether from a simple concept or from an existing business.

We have also helped dozens of other business owners who, for one reason or another,
have decided to take advantage of the benefits of structuring their business like a franchise but who have not finalised the process to create franchised outlets.

Led by Brian Keen – Founder of Franchise Simply

Australia’s most sought after advisor for business owners considering franchising

I would be honoured to help you franchise your business and reap the rewards this business model offers.

I’m passionate about helping people become financially secure and independently wealthy by setting up their own business, wherever they are, whatever their background.

Having worked in the franchise sector for over 30 years and helped business to grow by over $9bn in that time, I believe franchising offers one of the most exciting business models around for anyone looking to create real wealth and financial independence for themselves.

I know it can help you

  • Expand your business
  • Increase its value and saleability
  • Help with staffing issues
  • Help you leverage yourself out of the day-to-day and work on your business
  • Give you your life back so you can spend time with family and doing the things you love to do
  • Give you pride in what you can achieve

I first saw the massive potential for franchising to create a successful business – fast – after opening and operating seven stores in just five years as a franchisee for Bedshed, setting up and growing six franchise groups of my own and working with many other businesses through Franchise Alliance, the consultancy I set up.

Based on this depth of experience, I’ve helped many dozens of businesses to franchise successfully, increasing their profits and allowing their owners to retake control of their lives by working fewer hours.

Helping you do the same will give me great pleasure

Our Team of Experts

Because of my intensive commercial experience with franchised businesses, I believe that franchising must involve all aspects of your business if you are to be successful. I also believed each member of the team advising you must have experience in their specific area of interest through their own business and have advised other franchised businesses so they understand the full suite of tricky issues which can be involved.

Listed here in the order in which you will first meet them as you work through the step-by-step process of the Franchise Success Path.

We believe in the power of giving back


And, because I understand how business can transform lives, I also founded and became Chairman of MicroLoan Foundation Australia (MLFA), a charity which, to date, has provided over $3,000,000 in loans to impoverished women in Malawi, Zimbabwe, Zambia to allow them to start their own business and improve life for themselves and those who depend on them.
