Meet leading brands in over 25 sectors at the International Franchise Show on October 1-2
A franchise is often described as a ‘business in box’, as it offers a turnkey solution to becoming your own boss.
The range of franchise offerings is continually growing and adapting to consumers’ wants and needs.
During the past five years, for instance, we’ve seen a surge in dessert parlours, e-transportation franchises, fast food outlets and coffee shop franchises driven by consumer demand, economic changes and environmental trends.
While the pandemic has hindered expansion in many industries, certain franchise sectors are experiencing high levels of demand and thriving through opportunities that have emerged as a result of the pandemic.
Accelerated use and a need for technology in the midst of lockdowns has meant fitness studios have been able to adapt and operate while reaching more customers than ever before.
The flexibility of online programmes has also meant that customers who aren’t comfortable attending a fitness centre have been able to work out from the comfort of their home and around their personal/work schedule.
As a result of home workouts, a Research and Markets report found that purchases of home and fitness equipment has increased by 170 per cent.
Another sector that has seen significant growth is the health care industry.
Guardian Angel Carers, a franchise that offers professional home care and support for clients, has reported strong growth throughout the past year, largely due to the rise in interest for care following the demand for health care services throughout the pandemic.
As the government and public recognise the significance of health and care services, reports suggest increased public spending and an emphasis on creating more health and care jobs post-pandemic.
Online learning and tutoring
A lot of learning and development franchises have thrived recently, due to their ability to deliver their service online.
Many tutoring franchises are showing strong growth, as parents look for ways to ensure their children keep up to speed with vital learning and development. Franchise brands like Tutortoo and Tutor Doctor offer both online and in-person at-home tutoring for key education stages.
Other children’s learning franchises such as The Strings Club, Fun Fest and Logiscool have all pivoted their businesses to offer online services to maintain profits and growth.
At the International Franchise Show, you can meet brands in over 25 sectors, including all the brands mentioned in this article. Returning on October 1-2 at ExCeL London, thousands of entrepreneurs and business owners will get free access to over 250 exhibitors, 60 seminars, one-to-one personal advice, interactive features and expert guidance.
