Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo returns to Sydney!

The Melbourne Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo, held in May, presented an impressive showcase of the thriving franchising industry. 


Both exhibitors and visitors were thrilled to have the opportunity to engage face-to-face and delve into business discussions at this highly successful event, generating a strong sense of enthusiasm within the industry. 


Glenn Dobson from The Drug Detection Agency said he was “Pleasantly surprised at the numbers coming through the door, we haven’t stopped talking to potential franchisees”. The remarkable level of interest and engagement demonstrated the strong appeal of the brands exhibiting. 


Paddy Mulcahy from Think Water said it was an exciting couple of days. “Blown away with the numbers coming through the door, the organisers have done a great job of marketing the event.”


Exhibition Manager Fiona Stacey agreed, “I think it goes to show how vibrant and successful this industry really is. We were quietly confident, but it was still a huge relief to see crowds lining up for the opening. It marks the return of a huge interest in working for yourself.”


The event’s triumph underscored the resilience and vitality of the franchising industry and reflected the desire among individuals to explore franchise opportunities and embark on their entrepreneurial journeys. 


Selecting the perfect franchise involves aligning your personality, skills, experience and motivation with a specific franchise opportunity. It entails finding a mutually beneficial match between you and the business. 


The upcoming Sydney Franchising Expo in August will present a range of thrilling concepts for aspiring business owners. Among these exciting options available are Amber, BedShed, CouriersPlease, Craveable Brands, DeckSeal, Gong Cha Tea, Gradi Group, Hydraulink, JNBY, Minuteman Press International, Muffin Break, Plumbing Bros, Poolwerx, Skill Samurai, Sushi Sushi and many more. These franchises offer diverse opportunities for individuals seeking to venture into the franchising industry. 


“We are thrilled to bring the Franchising Expo to Sydney” says Fiona. Like its sister Expos in Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, the Sydney event will offer visitors a forum to compare and research a diverse range of franchise opportunities, with investment levels from under $10,000 to more than $500,000. 


In addition to the variety of franchise and small business options, attendees can also benefit from expert guidance in legal and financial matters related to purchasing and establishing a new business or franchise. The Franchise Council of Australia (FCA) will be present at the event, offering valuable information and addressing any questions or concerns related to franchising. 


One of the most popular features of the Franchising Expo is the free seminar series on the show floor. In Sydney, you can hear from experienced franchisees as they share their stories in the ‘Conversations with franchisees’ panels and learn more about franchising in the ‘Is franchising right for you’ session. These sessions are designed to educate, inform and motivate. Whatever your reason for becoming your own boss, the best possible start you can give yourself is knowledge. 

Visitors can also choose to attend the Start Your Own Business Workshop, delivering advice on business ownership, how to get started and what you need to know to take the leap. The workshop will run on Saturday and Sunday mornings so you can choose which day to attend! Tickets are $25 including entry to the Expo.


Gain the freedom and flexibility of being your own boss with an established brand and support network behind you. Visit the show to explore a wide variety of franchises, advisors and business ideas, all under one roof.
