Buying a franchise that instantly plugs you straight into the successful track record of an established brand, service or product makes this a popular alternative to kick start a small business dream. 

Like most big decisions in life, however, there are no guarantees. Often it’s what you do before you get started that will help you, firstly, understand how the franchising business model works in practice and, secondly, decide whether buying into one is right for you. 

So, take the guesswork out of your next steps and get all your questions answered up front at this practical two-hour workshop led by a franchise expert with real-life know-how and lots of insight to share. 

Learn how franchise finance works, get across the Franchising Code of Conduct, the personal and commercial risks, how to minimise them and how to evaluate, and then choose, the right franchise for you. 

What you discover will help you to develop a clear vision of your ideal franchise opportunity, and feel better informed to make a decision before you sign on the dotted line. 

Get ready to find out everything you need to know about buying a franchise at this essential Small Business Victoria workshop, one of many that have helped business get started in Victoria for more than 10 years.

• Decide whether franchising is for you 
• Compare different franchise systems 
• Understand and assess the personal and commercial risks 
• Evaluate finance options 
• Understand the Franchising Code of Conduct and the Australian regulatory environment 
• Assess Agreements and Disclosure Documents and understand their implications before you sign
