The Driver Hire franchise team are back in the office having spent last Friday and Saturday (6th/7th Sept) at Franchise Opportunities Live in Heathrow. It differs from the large traditional franchise exhibitions in that you can pre-book appointments with a number of attending franchisors just by calling the organizers ‘hotline’.
This meant we had a busy couple of days in front of us meeting potential buyers keen to learn more about the Driver Hire brand as a franchise opportunity. On the Friday our Twickenham franchisee, Bob McKinley sat on the ‘Real Franchise Stories’ seminar panel with franchisees from 3 other bfa accredited brands. This is a fantastic opportunity for interested people to hear real-life stories and to put their questions to those who have already made the move into franchising.
Driver Hire’s Franchise Sales Director, Graham Duckworth was also invited by the bfa to give a presentation on the Saturday about ‘Making Franchising your future’. Both seminars were well attended and overall feedback of the event from those present was that they found the day really useful.
Having met with lots of people eager to find out more about franchising, we’re looking forward to catching up with those interested in joining Driver Hire and attending The National Franchise Exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham on the 4th and 5th October.
