Is franchising the right fit?

Many Australian and international businesses have franchising models. Fernwood Women's Health Clubs Founder and Managing Director Diana Williams has been at the helm of her franchise model business for 33 years, transforming a modest fitness centre for women into an Australia-wide fitness franchise empire.

Diana says it's important the greatest advantage of purchasing a franchise is that you are not going into business by yourself.

"You will be part of a network of likeminded independent business owners who are being assisted and supported by a team of experts to help maximise the profitability of your business."

"Not all franchise systems support their franchisees in the same way so it is wise to speak to other franchisees in the network to get their view of the level of support you could expect."
