Realising your ambition to be your own boss – an introduction to Franchising & McDonald’s

At a crossroad in your life? Ever thought of running your own business? Want to work for yourself and be your own boss?

Starting your own business – thinking of an idea from the scratch and building the brand can be a daunting experience. You don’t have to take the leap alone when becoming your own boss. Franchising offers you the chance to build a business while reducing the risks of starting your own from scratch. You get to adopt a tried and tested idea that has proven to be a viable business model and operate with the power of an established brand. Not only that, you also get access to the Franchisor’s training programmes, support and assistance, and are also part of their wider strategy. All you have to do is to bring them to life on a local level.

In this session, you’ll hear about how McDonald’s Franchising works and how it has supported over 200 Franchisees to become successful entrepreneurs in their local communities.
