If you're a follower of Platinum Wave on Facebook, Twitter or Linked In, you may have noticed we have been running a series of educational A - Z Franchising posts. These range from information about International Franchising to Franchise Recruitment and everything in between. After all, we are experts in all things franchising, so thought we would put our knowledge to good use and create the A - Z of Franchising for all you aspiring franchisees and franchisors!
See the first part of our series below, going through letters A to I. We hope you learn a thing or two!
A is for Area Developer
An individual or company that has been granted an area development agreement from a franchisor, and has the chance to develop a network of their own managed outlets throughout a designated area. These outlets are company-owned rather than franchised.
B is for The British Franchise Association (bfa)
The bfa is the UK's accreditation body and trade association for ethical franchising. Platinum Wave are proud members of The bfa and are delighted to have worked closely with them over the years!
C is for Connecting
Finding the right franchise opportunity amongst such an endless stream of options can be really daunting without expert help. We have lots of experience helping successful individuals from the corporate world make the jump into franchising by connecting you with the right opportunities for you!

Our wide range of creative and tech services can help you expand, perfect and super-charge your marketing presence so you can attract, educate and retain the perfect franchisees for your network!

F is for Flexibility
A lot of our franchising opportunities offer the flexibility of running your own business. Razzamataz Theatre School is a part-time, weekend performing arts franchise that attracts franchisees from all walks of life. For this opportunity, the only thing franchisees need to have in abundance is a love of inspiring young people and a passion for performing arts. Franchisees can work their own hours to suit their lifestyle and by being dedicated to their business, can reap the financial rewards.
