Franchising & Its Challenges : Is It Right For Your Business


Organisations face numerous growth imperatives, especially if their domestic markets are small or there are limited organisational resources for tapping into opportunities. 

Franchising has often been touted as a quick and effective way to access greater market share, locally and overseas. While franchising presents many advantages, there are inherent risks in this model of business expansion. If such risks are not anticipated and addressed in advance, it will cause significant impact on business operations, brand equity and financial performance.

Course Outline

This 1-day programme presents a practical overview of the franchising model, the key processes underlying such an expansion model, its benefits and risks and how to incorporate critical checkpoints and competences into a franchising model. This will enable participants to better mitigate the risks and ensure sustainable use of such a model for growth.

Through discussions and real-life examples, participants will gain a stronger understanding of the franchising model and will be able to evaluate whether such a model is appropriate for their organisation’s strategy and resources.

Who Should Attend 

Managers and senior management involving in planning for business expansion and/or internationalisation.
