“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live” - Jim Rohn


Welcome to our November/December issue of Business Franchise Australia and New Zealand magazine. I’m pleased to join the team for a brief spell while your Editor Hayley Drew takes maternity leave to welcome a new addition to her family.

With the year that we had drawing to a close, many of us are looking to 2021 with a mixture of uncertainty and hope. It’s time to start slowly returning to a new COVID-normal, get back to business, and get back to life!

Which is why it’s fitting that we finish off the year with a special feature on Health, Fitness and Beauty. So shake off those cobwebs and reinvigorate your mind, body and soul. Our feature includes news and expert advice from fitness and beauty industry professionals sharing how they are safely welcoming back customers, and tips for how your business can survive and thrive despite the ongoing pandemic.

On our cover we are delighted to feature Bedshed, a company which has seen increased demand for high-end bedroom furniture during the various lockdowns. Turn to page 12 to read about how their long-planned e-commerce store arrived at just the right time to capitalise on increased online shopping trends.

And, as more and more people are shopping, working and holidaying at home, Mary Aldred of the Franchise Council of Australia (FCA) examines what our new ‘hyper-localised’ way of life means for the way we do business in the future. Turn to page 14 for her article on ‘Rethinking business in a post-COVID market’.

In addition to loads of great franchising advice and insights, readers will find plenty of franchising news, profiles pieces, and our A-Z franchise listing directory with all of the best franchise opportunities available right now. 

Enjoy the read!
