6 new franchises pumped for 2018. Are you?
Why not start the year off with a fresh franchise...a brand that has just started its expansion as a franchise? Here are six options that fit the bill:
Imagine if you could squeeze all your tough gym training into just one session. That’s the central point of Speedfit, an Aussie business set up by Matej Varhalik using a t nerve activation technology familiar to Europeans for decades.
Clients wear specially provided fitness suits while undergoing the intense fitness session.
A brand that’s new to franchising, but Melbourne doughnut aficionados will know the store that started the sweet treat sensation in 2006, opposite Flinders Street station.
It’s distinctive branding emphasises the old-school American feel of its menu - jam doughnuts, US style hot dogs, milkshakes and old fashioned sodas.
3. First Index
There are 11.2m Australians who hold investments outside their institutional superannuation fund, according to the ASX Australian Investor Study 2017. The study also reveals 60 per cent of investors take some professional advice to help them make investment decisions.
First Index is a bricks and mortar trading franchise network that launched in 2017 and is now set for 10 Melbourne locations over the next three months.
Spotting a trend for shorter, sharper fitness sessions, Michael King saw an opportunity to develop a new model. Already attuned to the sector running yoga studios with his wife, King decided to create fusion classes.
The classes also provide fans of yoga-style exercise - 70 per cent are women - with a 45-50 minute option rather than the 90 minute traditional sessions typically on offer.
5. IBrow Threads
Established in 2014 in South Australia by Jeevitha Sivapalan and Roha Joshna, this eyebrow threading kiosk model is just launching its franchise offer.
While the focus is on shaping the brows, the treatment menu also includes brow tinting, eyelash lifting and facial threading.
6. Physio Inq
As the name suggests Physio Inq delivers physiotherapy treatments in clinics and as a mobile service but there’s much more to the business...Pilates, acupuncture, massages, exercise physiology, occupational therapy and podiatry.
