TAB discovers New Directions with bfa campaign

The Alternative Board

TAB was delighted to be a part of the jam-packed UK Franchise Week 13-17th June supporting this initiative which was organised by the British Franchise Association (bfa).

During the week, the bfa held the SUPERBRAND event at the IET in London where they were host to a number of franchisors interested in expansion in the UK.

As part of the week, TAB supported the launch of New Directions, a brand-new campaign from the bfa.  Highlighting how each franchise journey is different, New Directions celebrates the variety of business options across the franchise sector and allows the people behind the franchises to share their story! 

The campaign features a new E-Brochure from the bfa, sponsored by Barclays, which shares expertise and inspiring stories from across the industry. Providing potential franchisees with an in-depth understanding of the industry, how to get started and the variety of opportunities available, the E-Brochure gives readers an empowered first step into their franchising future.

Liam Kane a TAB franchisee based in Northumberland is featured within the guide (see page 20), sharing his journey from the corporate world of banking into running a successful franchise business.  Showcasing the positive impact franchising has had on his professional and personal life.

Liam’s story provides fascinating insights into why franchising is such a popular career choice. Liam comments: “I have the flexibility to choose what I do and when I do it which suits mine and my family’s needs, as well as run a fantastic business supporting other SME owners.

“I help them to fulfil their potential in business and their personal lives. I get a real kick from seeing one of my members achieve their goals and loving what they do again.”

TAB franchise owners run dynamic, membership-only board meetings every month where members pool their knowledge and experience for the benefit of the group.

Always open to new franchisees and members, TAB is the world’s largest peer-to-peer support and business coaching franchise.  For more information visit or contact
