About Us

We are a team of franchising experts who are passionate about this industry and dedicated to making every project we undertake a success.

The Basics

The word “franchise” comes from the French language and means privilege or freedom. In a sense, franchising offers people the freedom to own, manage and direct their own business. While starting a business can be a lonely challenge, franchising offers people the opportunity to be in business for themselves, but not by themselves. The franchisee owns his/her own business, but the franchisor remains in the picture, providing ongoing training, strategic direction and field support.

The franchisor has developed a proven business formula and brand that it wants to grow further by granting franchises.

The franchisee is a person that seeks a business opportunity that will provide ongoing support.

Why Franchise your Business?

There are many reasons why companies look at franchising their business. Some manufacturing companies look at franchising as a powerful way to own a distribution channel for their products, other companies consider franchising as an ideal way to give BEE candidates a share of their business. Here are some of the reasons why companies consider franchising.

Strategy for dynamic growth
Allows for economic expansion through motivated owner operators
Broaden distribution network and brand presence with little or no additional capital
Control of distribution channel through franchising’s strict procedural standards
Allows for expansion into outlying areas that are not feasible for corporate outlets
Franchising is an ideal empowerment tool
