Australian Franchise News – 19-03-12
As the economy recovers, aspiring business owners are searching for their next opportunity and Nanotek, in conjunction with the Franchise Council of Australia (FCA), will be focusing on the education of prospective franchisees at Sydney’s upcoming Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo.
“Franchising is a fantastic business model.” said Nanotek CEO, Jim Cornish. “It enables someone to own their own business and be their own boss, but provides the security of a proven business model within a framework of teamwork and support.”
“The franchisor provides a proven business format and centralised support systems.” said Adam Stone, Nanotek’s Franchise Development Manager. “This enables the franchise business owner to focus on the things which directly affect revenue and profit such sales, customer service and day-to-day efficiency.”
But where do you to get the right information? The Sydney Franchising Expo, with over 4000 attendees over the 3 days, is a great place to start! But in addition the FCA, with education as one of it’s key roles, has instigated a number of initiatives to help prospective franchise buyers get all the information they need to make an informed decision.
Following the Expo the FCA runs a ‘Eyes Wide Open’ Seminar Series which focuses on what you need to know before buying a franchise. Nanotek CEO, Jim Cornish, will be both chairing the Sydney Seminar and providing the Franchisor’s perspective on the franchise relationship and the qualities that a franchisee needs to have to be successful.
“It’s very important that new franchisees understand the structure of a franchise system and how they can make it work for them to maximise the potential of their business.” Said Jim.
The Sydney ‘Eyes Wide Open’ Seminar and will be held on Tuesday, the 3rd of April at Martin Place from 9am to 12:30pm and will also include speakers from the FCA, ACCC, the NSW Department of Trade.
During the course of the Expo, Nanotek Franchisees Ian Franke and Sue Taylor will also be participating in FCA franchisee ‘bootcamp’ panels which are held each day to share their experiences and answer the questions from people who are considering buying a franchise.
“After 20 years in the Police Force is was quite scary to buy your first business, but it’s been a great move.” Said Ian Franke, Nanotek’s franchisee for Camden NSW. “I’ve bought a piece of land with my wife and we’re just about to start building a house on it to raise our children. I’m also looking at purchasing a second territory and taking more of a management role in my business.”
Throughout the course of the Expo both Nanotek’s CEO, Jim Cornish, and Franchise Development Manager, Adam Stone, will be on hand at the Franchise Selection Stand (C23) to answer questions from people looking to buy a franchise or even those who are just investigating franchising in general.
Nanotek Car Cleaning
Nanotek uses spray-on liquid polymer nano technology that encapsulates, lubricates and lifts dirt from the paint surface resulting in a high quality finish and a protective polymer coating that lasts up to six weeks. The process requires no water which means that Nanotek can clean a car anywhere (and saves 180L of water per wash based on Sydney Water figures).
Founded in Australia in 2004, Nanotek now operates in more than 12 countries around and the world (most recently launching in Russia, Belgium and Luxembourg) and is one of the most awarded franchise systems in Australia.
