New Zealand is a country of franchise

By: David Foster

It is a little known fact that per capita, New Zealand is the most franchised country in the world with 631 franchised brands, 37,000 franchise units, a turnover of business format franchises amounting to $27.6 billion and a total annual turnover of $46.1 billion!

Successfully creating a business, managing it profitably and selling it for a handsome capital gain are some of the big boxes to tick in business planning.

LINK Business Brokers is a franchise system selling all types of businesses with a particular emphasis on franchised businesses.

Steven Matthews, a former owner of Bay Business Brokers Limited, the Bay of Plenty and Waikato LINK franchisee, is now general manager of the two branches and is also undertaking work for LINK on a national basis following the sale of his interests in the outlets to an entity associated with the franchisor.

Steven’s story will show how the professionals create, manage and sell a business for the best return.

This event is the last for this year’s Bay of Plenty branch of the Franchise Association of New Zealand.

If you would like to attend, please see the advertisement on this page.
