Kickstart Workshop

Our Kickstart Franchise Workshop


Our Kickstart Franchise Workshop is run over a weekend and gives you an amazing overview of franchising. Understanding the big picture makes the whole process much simpler.

Accredited by the Franchise Council of Australia and presented by Brian and our specialist team, this Workshop will give you the answers about exactly what is involved with building a franchise. When you are done, you will know what you have to do, the costs involved and whether you want to take this path at all.

These workshops

Are for driven business owners
Who want to create more time and money
And grow a significant business asset

You’re an experienced business owner with drive and ambition and you’ve heard franchising is a great way to grow a business. You know by building a franchised business you can attract franchise partners with capital to help you expand your business through the region, through Australia or even across the world. But you’ve also heard franchising a business costs thousands, needs lawyers and accountants and takes a lot of work and, if you don’t get it right, it can fail – horribly. And yes, I have seen franchisors make some fundamental mistakes and fail badly and expensively. But I know failure need not happen. You simply need to know the tricks to getting it right, simply and cost effectively. After 30 years in the franchising business I’ve developed a system which has enabled me to turn small and medium-sized businesses – from commercial cleaners, security contractors and business consultants through to pizzerias, hire companies and yogurt shops – into successful franchise operations for their owners.

The workshops are presented by the franchise simply team

I will be explaining the system in detail and showing how you can apply it to your own business. And I cover the commercial realities you need to think about with each step. I also work with a great team of Franchise savvy business experts and some will be there over the weekend to talk about their specialties in including:

  • A Lawyer with invaluable franchise experience.
  • An accountant with significant experience in the franchise field
  • A branding and marketing specialist

I and my team of franchise experts will outline

  • What each element is about
  • How each element fits together
  • Why it is important to follow the sequence in the process
  • Some of the tricky aspects around converting to a franchise model

And you will be working on some of the aspects of your business during some workshop sessions.

This information filled weekend gives you the opportunity to network with like-minded business owners

  • You will mix with a small group from three to twelve delegates which gives you a great opportunity to ask questions
  • I provide delightful morning and afternoon tea, lunch in the Waves Restaurant
  • And on the Saturday night, I shout you dinner with me so we can get to know one another better

And you will find out

  • What franchising is all about and how you can use it to grow and scale your business.
  • The hidden wealth-generating opportunities many new franchisors miss … and how to benefit from them and add them to your cash flow.
  • How to work out if you and your business are suitable for franchising (not all businesses or their business owners are right for franchising, and knowing that early on can save you time, heartache and money).
  • Why you don’t need heaps of capital to franchise and, if you do, how to raise working capital in a way that’s self-financing.
  • How to avoid paying the fees that some franchise consultants ask.

Happy groups of prospective franchisors at the end of the weekend
