One day franchise recruitment event for Perth

There’s a new focus on franchising in Western Australia with a one-day table-top event planned for a November outing this year.

Thanks to the mining boom that's now over, there are cashed-up buyers in the region looking to invest in a new career.

The WA State Chapter Committee of the FCA is supporting the one day Franchise Opportunities Roadshow for under 40 franchise brands which will take place on Sunday 8 November, from 10am to 4pm, at the Crown Perth Burswood.

Free entry, and a free seminar program, are part of the attraction for potential franchise buyers.

Tamra Seaton, the FCA WA state president, said "WA has not had a franchise expo for several years because the cost of running a traditional style event has made it simply unviable.  The WA Franchise Roadshow (which will be held on Sunday 9 November 2015 at Crown Perth) will not be a traditional expo but a smaller scale and lower cost event, designed to achieve all that the traditional expos do, but in a simple and cost effective way.  

"The timing of the event is perfect given there are now so many ex-FIFO workers (and many more from related and supporting industries) in WA that are looking for new opportunities. Entry will be free for visitors and a free seminar program will run throughout the day. We encourage all franchisors that are looking for franchisees in WA to register for the event."
