Financial Foundations Workshop


New franchisees know how important the money side of business is for running their franchise. But most have limited experience on the financial aspects of business.

We’ve found that new franchisees have many questions about the financial aspects and are keen to know how it all fits together. 

They are keen to learn and want to know.

The Financial Foundation Workshop provides new franchisees with an introduction to the essentials of business finance.

It includes:

  • learning the foundations of financial language
  • the essentials of compliance for new business owners
  • helps them become interested in the numbers

The workshop helps new business owners become familiar with essential financial concepts. They can then build on this knowledge as they look at their figures each month.

Our financial foundations workshop will set franchisees up for a good future interacting with their figures as their business grows.

Start as you mean to go on.
