Business Franchise Australia


How do we look for the great sites?

One of the most critical decisions in franchising you will ever make!

Whether you are a franchisor, or a franchisee, finding a great site is one of the most important decisions you will be making, and sets up the way for a successful journey into the future. Great location and low rents are the dream; however, the reality is you need an excellent site, and not to be paying too much for most franchises to operate successfully

Do not think of the lease fee as a monthly expense, treat it as a long term commitment that if all else fails, the landlord will still be expecting to be paid until the end of your lease. Add that up over five to 10 years, and it will probably be the most significant expenditure you ever make outside your home.
