Chat to franchisors about their journey into franchising
You will have the opportunity to chat to many new and very experienced franchisors.
Exhibitors include many franchisors displaying their franchises for prospective franchisees. And they will be happy to chat about their journey in franchising, giving you valuable tips gained through experience.
Certainly, over the years, our clients have found Franchise Expos are a great place to research the industry.
And, once they have established, they also find Expos are great places to source new franchisees. Some of our clients will be at each Expo this year.
Chat to professionals who help the franchise industry
Exhibitors also include many working in the industry, providing specialist advice to both franchisees and franchisors. Lawyers, franchise accountants, franchise consultants who together have worked in the industry for many years make the list.
You will find
- Free legal and financial advice set up your new business or franchise.
- Compare and research a diverse range of franchise opportunities with investment levels from under $10,000 to more than $500,000.
- Gain a more informed decision about franchising a business with the Franchise Council of Australia – available to answer your franchising questions.

Franchising Seminar Theatre
Attend a range of free information rich seminars designed to provide the essential knowledge to those who are in the early stages of their franchising journey.
Brian will be giving a talk at each Franchise Expo on some of the trickier bits around setting up a franchise.
Professional bodies at the Franchise Expo
The ACCC (Australian Competition & Consumer Commission) promote compliance with the Franchising Code of Conduct, by helping people understand their rights and obligations under the code and the Competition and Consumer Act. They do this by supplying franchisees with education materials such as guidelines, articles and fact sheets, to ensure your franchise meets the legal checklists.
The Fair Work Ombudsman provides information and advice about Australia’s workplace rights and rules. Operating independently of Government, their functions include promoting harmonious, productive and cooperative workplace relations and ensuring compliance with Commonwealth workplace laws. The services of the Fair Work Ombudsman are free to all workers and employers in Australia.
Am I in the right place?
The first step in any of our programs is to suggest you learn as much as you can about franchising. The positives, the pitfalls, whether your business will fit this model and above all to find out if you really want to grow your business through this exciting growth model.
We suggest you start by having a chat with Brian or one of his experts. We will listen to your questions and ask a few of our own and the knowledge we gain about you and your business will give our team a good idea of where you sit. We can then advise you on your next step and offer you options for action.
