Franchising as an alternative career path
Use your years of experience to achieve success on your terms.

Franchising can be an attractive option to senior corporate professionals who are looking to transition out of corporate life into a new and rewarding career. The dynamics of a franchise can be very similar to those found in a corporate environment except one primary difference; you're the captain of your own ship.

Frequently Asked Questions
If you've spent the majority of your career working in a corporate environment then franchising can feel like a home from home. To start with, many find that the dynamics of a franchise can be very similar to the dynamics found in a corporate environment but with one primary difference; you're the captain of your own ship. It can be a very rewarding path to the realisation of your dreams as franchising provides many of the benefits of small business ownership, but without the high risks that can come with independent business ownership.
Franchising has proven to be a logical 'next step' for many corporate professionals who were looking to make a change in their career. In fact, the industry is full of former corporate executives who have successfully made the transition away from corporate life to a new and rewarding career running their own small business.
Franchising has two costs; the upfront franchise fee and the on-going royalty. The upfront franchise fee is essentially your setup costs; the cost of buying your franchise licence, training and getting your business up 'n' running. The on-going royalty is a normally a % of your monthly sales (sometimes a flat fixed fee) and is for your on-going training, support and guidance.
