Connecting Australia to the World
Franchise Ready is an Australian company focused on the Australian market but has worked with brands into and from New Zealand, Scotland, India, Indonesia, UAE, Philippines, and Singapore in the past twelve months.
Franchise Ready has just become a member of the Global Franchise Alliance so we can connect more Australian brands with international partners and be the conduit for international brands into Australia.
We have travelled to New York, India, Singapore, Indonesia, Scotland and New Zealand to meet with prospective clients and exhibited at Franchise Expos on behalf of our Australian clients and met with brands that we are now working with in Australia as a consequence of those visits and we have completed market feasibility reports for all of our international clients regarding their entry into Australia and we have completed a global feasibility report for a UK brand that will expand into every continent in 2023/2024.
We know Franchising
With our collective boots on the ground franchise experience having run franchise systems, developed over 120 franchise systems and through our experience as franchisees across multiple franchises, we are well positioned to offer advice and service to both new and established franchisors.
In 2023 we started franchising our own business as we believe having franchise partners in each continent will support Australian brands with their international growth.
World Class Systems and Resources
At the core of what we do is develop robust systems and supporting documentation (Training manual, Operations manual, SOP’s, Franchising manual, New territory Opening Manual and all supporting documents to operate a franchise business. These documents create a business in a box that can be replicated anywhere in the world with adjustments made to suit local market conditions, we assess those through our membership with the Global Franchise Alliance (GFA) partners in the countries we enter and through market visits to those territories to understand the nuances of those markets.
In 2023 we started working with mature franchise brands completing a system review on their currents assets, for many mature brands, their operational resources may not have been reviewed for a while or may have been added to in an adhoc manner over the years, so we have been able to contemporize their assets and complete a review on their processes from an external perspective.
A significant Point of Difference
In the first quarter of 2022 Franchise Ready opened a Franchising centre of Excellence in Sydney to showcase Franchising and the Franchise opportunities of the clients that we work with. The showroom presents much like a real estate agency with our clients showcased in the showroom area with designated meeting areas, and a boardroom. All of our clients have a digital presentation running on multiple screens and each of the brands franchise marketing brochures are on display, together with industry publications available.
The Franchise centre of excellence has a large open space and training room that has been used to conduct franchise information sessions, training sessions and seminars and the board room is used as the venue for the franchisor Mastermind groups meetings that we run.
This retail showroom has become a Hub of Franchise Excellence showcasing franchising and franchise opportunities. This is a one-of-a-kind vehicle that positions Franchise Ready at the forefront of franchise consultancies globally and has direct benefit to the franchise sector by assisting franchisors with an additional opportunity to showcase their brand in an environment where potential franchisees may not have ordinarily considered them.
Franchise Ready sees themselves as the one-stop shop for everything franchising, if you have any needs or simply want a committed and experienced franchise team to assist you with your business growth, we’d love to hear from you.
