Young people are making serious waves in franchising: in the last two years, almost one in five new franchisees launching their own business has been aged under 30.
It's easy to see why. Franchising offers initial training and ongoing support to business owners, which can help plug any gaps in experience or knowledge of running a business; while younger entrepreneurs are known for their drive, passion and ideas, all of which can contribute greatly to a franchise brand.
We're celebrating the success of people in the sector under the age of 30 and on these pages you'll find real-life experiences, features and advice on everything from starting up and funding to growing a business empire. New stories will be added each day.
If you're good enough, you're old enough...as these people show.
