Riassunto: If you have a proven business system and are wishing to expand, franchising is a strong option. It provides a quick route to growth and uses other people's money and enthusiasm to open individual offices, shops, restaurants, salons, surgeries, units, van rounds, or service centres. This book provides practical advice on how franchising works from two authors with years of experience. As well as being for potential franchisors, this book is also invaluable to owners of existing branch networks, practising franchisors and their management teams, and candidates for the Diploma in Franchise Management.
