Today, the 28thJune at the British Franchise Association conference, of which they are platinum sponsors, The Franchising Centre are proud to launch their refreshed branding and new website thefranchisingcentre.com. This is all part of the company looking to the future and building on their success.
Chairman and founder, Brian Duckett, explains “I’ve spent the last eighteen months identifying and installing our ‘next generation’ management team who, with the energy and enthusiasm that I had twenty years ago, will take our business to the next level. We’ve developed new systems for improving franchisors’ businesses, not least an outsourced franchisee selection system which identifies the best candidates and gets them through the recruitment process more effectively and efficiently”.
“For more mature systems, our Value Builder software enables franchisors to continually grow the value of their network, particularly if they have an exit plan in mind. We also have an eye on our own succession plan and are using the Value Builder ourselves with the aim of transferring ownership to the new team over the next few years”.
Already a founder-member of Franchise Pool International, Europe’s largest network of franchise consultants and brokers, TFC has extended its international reach and now has associates in more than sixty countries worldwide. This enables TFC clients, once their international franchise offer is prepared, to be introduced to local specialists in other countries who have databases of qualified master franchise investors looking for proven opportunities.
“Whether a franchisor is developing, emerging, maturing or exiting our team has the breadth and depth of experience to get them to where they want to be” said Duckett. “We’ve even embraced equality as Farrah Rose and Laura Harvey-Smith comprise the female fifty per cent of the leadership team with Alan Wilkinson and Dugan Aylen being the males. The wider team of some fifteen specialists in their respective fields means that franchisors in any business sector get relevant, hands-on experience to drive the growth of their franchised network”.
