Learning more about franchising

By: David Foster

The first meeting of  the Franchise Association’s Bay of Plenty branch will take place on February 15.

As the region’s most experienced franchise lawyers, Harris Tate has seen a consistent demand for good quality franchises over the last year.

David Foster, a director of Harris Tate and former chairman of the Franchise Association of New Zealand, says one of the big challenges for a prospective franchisee (purchaser) is knowing what constitutes a good franchise to purchase.

David’s years of practicing franchise law have proven to be of great help to aspiring franchisees.

“A good franchise is not  merely the words on the page  of the franchise agreement or  the numbers in the spreadsheet,” he says. “It is a totality of  a number of elements.”

At the franchise meeting Andrew Morgan, the New Zealand master franchisor of Esquires, The Coffee Guy, Café 2U and Brumby’s, will reveal what he has learned from his experience in franchising, which includes being the general manager of large franchisor company Retail Food Group.

If you are a prospective franchise purchaser or a potential franchisor, you should attend this  meeting to learn from the wealth of experience that will be shared.
