Franchise Networking Event a great success!
FAN member firm MBC Accountants in Orange, NSW, recently held a franchise networking event. Following the event, local franchise owners have enthusiastically registered to be part of the MBC Franchise Networking Forum which will run over the next 4 months.
Ben Wright, a Director of MBC, said:
“We wanted to raise awareness in our local area that we specialise in Franchises. Better still, that there is a movement called the Franchise Accountants Network that we are a part of.
“So, the idea was hatched to hold an Franchise Night. We invited franchise owners in the area, as well as the banks, and several solicitors who work in the Franchisee space. What a great success this was!”
At the Franchise Night, Ben spoke about MBC, and introduced the concept of the Franchise Accountants Network. He explained why MBC became involved and how they we can help franchisees.
Peter Knight, who came up with the idea of the Franchise Accountants Network, gave real insight into the franchise world, and what he sees as the 5 Key Elements to Business Success. Peter gave a talk entitled “5 Essential Elements for Business Success”.
After the event, Ben commented, “There is so much to be gained when bringing business (franchisees) and professionals together who have a commonality amongst them. The networking opportunities alone made their attendance worthwhile. The feedback today has been awesome. The banks loved it, the solicitors loved it and the franchisees want more.”
MBC’s next initiative is to start the inaugural Franchise Networking Forum. It starts in 2 weeks (Late September 2015) and 10 franchisees have already signed up.
