Our founder, Roz Goldstein, will be on BBC Radio 4’s The Bottom Line this evening (21st June). Tune in at 8:30pm to hear Roz discussing franchising with the host Evan Davis (Dragons Den, Newsnight).

The Bottom Line is a business conversation show, featuring a different topic each week. And this week it’s franchising’s turn in the spotlight!

It promises to be a great show and lively discussion. Roz will be joined by fellow guests Subway franchisee, Rachana Pancholi and Right at Home CEO, Ken Deary. The trio will discuss all things franchising and offer nuggets of industry wisdom to help your business thrive. The show’s discussion will focus on insights that benefit both franchisees and franchisors.

 Roz said: “Taking part in The Bottom Line was a fantastic experience. I was delighted to discuss this important topic and share legal tips to help listeners’ business’ succeed.

Setting up a new franchise is exciting but, like any business endeavour, it’s also challenging. There will be a lot to learn, think about, and big decisions to make. So whether you’re new to franchising or looking to expand your business, it’s vital to have specialist legal advice to help your franchise thrive.”

Franchising continues to appeal to many aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners. And with good reason: 

According to the bfa/Natwest Franchise Survey (2016):

  • 93% of franchises are profitable within their first two years (whereas 90% of independent business start-ups close or fail within five years)
  • Half of franchisee-owned businesses have an annual turnover of more than £250,000
  • 97% of franchisee-owned units reported profitability

There are 44,200 franchisee-owned businesses (bfa/Natwest Survey, 2016) and over 900 franchise brands operating in the UK. If you decide to join their ranks remember, having the right knowledge and expert support on your side is the key to your success.

So grab cuppa, sit back and tune into BCC Radio 4 tonight to learn more about franchising and find out if it’s right for you.

The Bottom Line airs on BBC Radio 4 FM on Thursday 21st June at 8.30pm. Or listen to it again on Saturday 23rd June at 5.30pm or on BBC iPlayer.
