Recently, I traveled to Australia. I’ve always wanted to go Down Under; so that’s what I did.

Scanning For Interesting Franchise News
That’s what I do at least once a week.
I scan the internet, using tools that are a bit under the radar, to locate franchise news and announcements-so you’ll know what’s going on in the world of franchising.
And this week, I was able to grab some interesting information about the top franchise concepts in another part of the world.
Very Familiar Franchise Brands
I know you’ve heard of these popular franchise concepts:

The Top 10 Franchises Down Under
In Australia, the 3 franchises mentioned above are big names.
And, they do a lot of business.

If you’re interested in seeing the entire list, go to the Startup Smart website.
Finally, if you do visit Australia, stop by a Bucking Bull restaurant for me.
