di Londra, il più importante salone del franchising del
The Franchise Show è un salone della famiglia MFV Expositions, holding del network BeTheBoss.
Testimonianza di Paul & Marion Lewis che dopo aver visitato The Franchise Show 2013, sono ora diventati franchisee di Equivalenza, una famosa franchise spagnola.
Paul & Marion Lewis made a decision in November 2012 that they wanted to become Franchisees. Three months later they came to our 2013 Franchise Exhibition to speak to Equivalenza, a Spanish brand which had caught Marion’s interest whilst on holiday in Costa Blanca. Attending the show was the easiest way to get the information they needed.
‘It was great to be able to meet face to face with a European company without having to travel outside the UK. But also the fact we made the effort to travel from Northern Ireland to a Franchise Exhibition in London still showed them we were serious about investing.’
‘The stand was easy to find and the exhibitors had plenty of
time to give us all the information we needed from them. I would
always advise being as prepared as possible, know who you want to
speak to and have questions ready so you can get the most out of
speaking face to face with the brands as it is a very useful
opportunity. Think carefully about which brand will be most
suitable for you in the current climate, make sure you know your
financial situation in detail – find out the fees and charges etc.
that you will have to put in to the business. Manage your
expectations - ensure they are realistic.’
‘Finally - Relax. Don’t forget to enjoy the show, it’s easy to get caught up with everything you have to get done, but take time to appreciate the event.’
One year after the show and Paul and Marion are celebrating 6
months of successfully running Northern Ireland’s first Equivalenza
Paul re-visited the Exhibition in 2014 to announce and discuss the opening of their store and a second store in Northern Ireland.
