Disaster Recovery Kit Available

Recent flooding and bush fires have struck Australia hard over the last few weeks. Thousands of homes and businesses have been affected.

“Franchising is an integral part of most local communities, so our sector will be touched at several levels. One of the main responsibilities of a franchisor is to provide timely and useful support to their franchisees,” said Franchise Relationships Institute CEO Karli Furmage.

When the floods hit Brisbane in 2011 and New Zealand was devastated by the Christchurch earthquakes, the Franchise Relationship Institute put together a free Disaster Recovery Kit. The Kit contains many useful guidelines on how best to support franchisees and people dealing with crisis.

“During crisis franchisees need emotional and business support. The Kit contains invaluable information on dealing with both. It will also be useful for franchisees wanting to support their colleagues, customers and members of their own communities,” Karli said.
