Franchising your Business

Franchising offers many advantages over other forms of business expansion.

Franchising as a method of doing business has many of the qualities sought by leading businesses. In fact, many conglomerates have adopted franchising as a means of developing / sustaining valuable markets for their products and services.

Franchising reduces personnel requirements – each outlet is a self-contained business. The franchisor receives regular reports from the franchisees, and supplies support as required.

Franchising is a knowledge-based business – franchising requires businesses to capture their specialist knowledge within franchise manuals. By documenting their specialist knowledge, franchisors have not only defined their intellectual property, but they can also realise its value by licensing the intellectual property to franchisees.

Franchising is a synergistic network of enterprises – franchising allows individuals dispersed over a wide geographical region to pursue common goals. By co-ordinating purchasing, accounting and marketing procedures, franchising allows small businesses to enjoy the benefits normally only realised by large conglomerates.

" Amongst other initiatives, our FANZ Board has a clear focus on building and strengthening the relationship between FANZ and the Government. I believe it is incredibly important that Government agencies see FANZ as the ‘go-to’ body for any legislative changes that may impact franchising. "

IAN ROBERTSON, General Manager

Ecomist

" It is extremely important that FANZ represents us in government. Who else will advocate for franchises in New Zealand? We need Government to know about the good work that is being done to assist people into successful businesses. "

DAVID PEARSE, Managing Director

Pukeko Rental Managers

" It is hugely important to have representation for franchising. Individual systems do not have the resource to do this on their own so to have a body acting on your behalf is great. FANZ have a strong board and base of legal members who have a real strength in this area. "

GALVIN BARTLETT, Director

Paramount Services Ltd

" The association provides a voice for the many franchise systems in New Zealand to ensure any legislative changes that could have an impact on franchising are made through the right government channels. The association has done an exceptional job here over the years. "

SCOTT JENYNS, CEO

Aramex NZ (formerly Fastway Couriers)

" With employment, safety and food safety legislation ever increasing, I feel that FANZ working alongside the government is a hugely important part of the association’s role. "
