The easiest and least risky way to start your own business
A handy introduction to franchising for aspiring franchisees and franchisors
This guide, offers advice from major figures in the industry on such essential areas, for prospective franchisees, as the ethics of franchising, raising finance, assessing franchises, the benefit of buying a franchise resale; and, for prospective franchisors, on turning a business into a franchise, the structures available, preparing operations manuals, setting fees and performance targets for franchisees, and expanding internationally.

A particularly valuable section provides samples from a leading franchise lawyer, Mark Abell (Bird & Bird), of a conventional franchise agreement between the franchisor and franchisee, and an international master franchise agreement between the franchisor and an investor taking the franchise for an entire country, acting as a virtual franchisor.

The authors, in addition to Abell, are (alphabetically): Nicola Broadhurst (Stevens & Bolton), Brian Duckett (The Franchising Centre), Cathryn Hayes (Revive!), Richard Holden (Lloyds Banking Group), Penny Hopkinson (Manual Writers International), Manzoor Ishani (Sherrards), Paul Monaghan (The Franchising Centre), Derrick Simpson (founder of Franchise Resales), Brian Smart (former director-general of the BFA), Lorna Smith (formerly at HSBC Bank) and Chris Wormald (Fieldfisher).
