X-Press Legal Services is excited to be joining five fellow franchisors for this year’s ‘Franchise Discovery Day’. The educational webinar provides an insight into the lives of those who have built a diverse range of successful businesses.
This event is a perfect opportunity for those looking to start their own business, but who may not be aware of the many opportunities available through franchising. It’s also a great opportunity for those who are aware of the franchise sector, but want to know more about real life experiences of franchisees.
The event, beginning at 6pm on Thursday 31st March 2022, will be hosted by BBC News Correspondent, Ben Thompson and welcomes franchisees and representatives from Puddle Ducks and five other leading UK franchises:
- Driver Hire
- FAST SIGNS
- Home Instead
- Puddle Ducks
X-Press is delighted to also be joined at the event by Emily Price, COO of the British Franchise Association, and by HSBC, who will be discussing the franchise sector more widely, as well as funding information and opportunities.
As well as hearing from Lynne and Dave Lister, Managing Director and Finance Director of X-Press, Russell Brown, owner of X-Press Greater Manchester and Cheshire will be joining to discuss his journey with X-Press and his experience in growing a strong, sizeable business through franchising.
Russell was one of the earliest X-Press franchisees, joining the network back in 2005. Since then, he has grown his business substantially, managing a team of staff and recently recording one of his best years on record. Despite a personal health scare, his business is going from strength to strength, and Russell was awarded as the most recent ‘Franchisee of the Year’ for the amazing support and guidance he continues to provide to the X-Press network.
Lynne Lister comments: “We’re excited to be joining the event again for its second year. It’s a great chance for people to learn more about how to launch their own business through franchise, an avenue many have not yet explored.
“There are many opportunities across the 6 brands attending, including resales, new territories and multi-unit expansion – through all of which you can be your own boss, something more and more people desire after the past few years.
“We have so many franchisees who have grown successful businesses through X-Press, being able to have flexibility in their working life whilst providing a respected service. We’re excited to share the experiences of our franchisees and hope they inspire others to consider franchising as a route to launching a business!”
