Franchise discovery days
Franchise discovery days are often a next step to finding your ideal franchise. Putting faces to names and perhaps meeting existing franchisees to gain further knowledge and ask questions is a chance to good to miss.
Perhaps you are wondering what to expect from a discovery day? Franchise discovery days vary in format depending on the franchise. Presentation style meetings are a popular choice among larger franchise brands with often many other interested parties in attendance. Smaller franchisors may hold one to one meetings on business premises, popular venues for discover days also include hotels, conference & business centres. Allow a few hours to get the most out of a franchise discovery day. Usually, a discovery day will include a full presentation on the business, the franchise opportunity, an introduction to the management team and a Q&A session.
Discovery days are a similar scenario to attending a job interview, both the candidate and the franchisor need to know whether there is potential to work together. Franchising is no different to any business in that respect. Finding the right talent is key.
View the franchise discovery day as a no obligation meeting, it is entirely up to the candidate whether to progress their interest. Equally so, a franchisor is under no obligation to accept an unsuitable candidate as a franchisee.
To give yourself the best chance of being successful, research the business, make notes of questions you would like to ask, show your interest in the opportunity and say why you think you would make a great franchisee.
