There are more accessible ways of starting a business than having the big idea - for example, franchising is the business expansion of an established model – entrepreneurs can hop on the going train and just run with it – Or, is it?
Most of the well-known international franchise brands have a presence in Hong Kong for its showcase role, world-class supporting services and the market sensitivity. According to Hong Kong Franchise Association's estimates, around 43% of the franchises in Hong Kong are in the catering business, 20% in retailing and 37% in other services including the education sector.
Born and raised in the UK, Justin Ng founded and grew a highly successful trading and manufacturing business. After 23 years and a successful exit, Justin chose to change direction and entered the education sector and became a franchisee of the Kip McGrath Education Centre, and has not looked back. To quote Justin "The best and most fulfilling decision I ever made".
In this event, Justin will share with us his experience of operating a successful franchise business in a competitive arena. Join us if you are interested in learning more about a franchise business to start or to invest in or already running one!
