First off, why would you even want to become a franchise owner in Australia?
Why not just do it here in the US? We could use the business. Just think of all the people in your local community that you would impact? C’mon; please?

Move To Australia
Let’s say that my powers of persuasion didn’t work on you, and you’re still hell-bent on moving to Australia to become the owner of a franchise. Fine. I have some tips…
Actually, David Wilson does. But first, he lays the franchise model out nicely;
“On paper, because its structure has been road-tested, a franchise is a money-making machine. In theory, any dropkick can run one successfully – all anyone has to do is get on with it – execute, exploiting the turnkey convenience.”
I like this guy already. He continues…
“Almost a quarter of Australian franchise owners squabble with their parent company, often taking legal action, according to a Franchising Australia 2010 report. Find out what mindset you need to avoid bust-ups and make franchise ownership work for you. Above all, experts agree, stick with the programme – there’s a reason you never see yellow arches painted pink.”
David understands franchising. Do you?
- Do you understand that there are no guarantees?
- Do you understand that you have to follow the rules?
- Do you understand that you’ll need massive amounts of energy to be successful?
I hope so. In the meantime, check out The 10 Traits That a Franchisee Needs, Aussie style.
