Business Start Up Stimulus with Franchise Direct Exclusive Offers
July 07, 2010, Press Dispensary. Franchise Direct, the UK’s top online portal of franchise opportunities, announces the launch of a special offers scheme for potential franchisees. ‘Exclusive Franchise Direct UK Offers’ – which is available only from Franchise Direct – features discounts and deals on purchases of new franchises, with offers available from many of the UK’s leading franchises including APS Legal & Associates and the highly successful Swedish pet franchise, Husse.
The campaign encourages franchises across the UK to offer discounts to potential franchisees so that the level of new business start ups in the UK will increase.
Unemployment levels rose in the first quarter of 2010, and it is clear that a stimulus is needed to spur new UK entrepreneurs into business. In response, the Franchise Direct campaign will last throughout the summer months and into late September, and will feature discounted franchise opportunities from a diverse range of industries including business consultancy, web design, education and children’s fitness franchises.
During an economic low, franchise opportunities offer powerful career alternatives to individuals facing redundancy and unemployment. Working from a proven business model, under a recognisable brand, franchises have a higher success rate than independent small businesses. In conversation with Franchise Direct recently, the chairperson of the International Franchise Association, Dina Dwyer Owens, described franchising as “the real economic stimulus plan”. Franchise Direct believes that its summer campaign will enable more people to start their own business and keep the British economy working towards recovery.
Brian Rogan, Director of European Sales for Franchise Direct, commented: “We hope the campaign will make more people aware of the wide range of franchise opportunities available today. The discounted franchises for sale will offer individuals ideal opportunities to start their own business. Some franchises are presenting ‘two for one’ offers on their products while others are offering financing packages or reduced franchise start up fees.”
