We are a not-for-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers, providing advice and guidance to women looking for a route into the franchise industry. Our mission is to educate, inspire and empower women considering or involved in franchising through a network of Ambassadors. Our remit is threefold; to encourage women to consider buying a franchise, to encourage businesswomen to franchise their existing operations and to help franchisors attract more women to their networks.


At EWiF, we’re looking to change the face of the franchise sector so that women have a much larger presence. If you’re a woman interested in franchising, click to find out how we can help you.


EWiF is built on our community of Ambassadors, who offer free services to women seeking advice and guidance on entering the franchise industry. Click to find out more about becoming an EWiF Ambassador.


 We hold regular meetings across the country. If you’d like to find out more about franchising, click to find out where your nearest meeting is and join us!


If you’ve always dreamt of running your own business, or have a business that is ready for expansion, franchising can help you turn your dreams into reality. At EWiF, we love supporting women with their career goals. Through franchising, we believe you really can have it all.

Discover how franchising can help you.
