FCA MEMBER UPDATE: AUSTRALIAN FRANCHISEE SURVEY

TSG is a member of the FCA (Franchising Council of Australia), who continue to work hard to protect and strengthen the franchise business model in Australia.

Those of us in franchising know the power for good that franchising is: helping create wealth for franchisees, creating jobs that provide training and career growth, and driving economic output.

However, not everyone understands how franchising works or the contribution it makes.

We want to help franchising achieve more recognition and more support but to do this we need more in-depth data and better information.

That’s why the FCA has launched the first-ever Australian Franchisee Survey designed to collect data from franchisees. This information will help to tell the positive story of franchising, help franchises unlock new opportunities and support franchises through their greatest challenges.

If you can share 4-5 minutes of your time we strongly encourage you to share your experience by completing the survey.

ATTENTION NSW RETAILERS – ROADMAP INFORMATION

All roadmap freedoms at 70% and 80% will continue to be for fully vaccinated people only. If you have any questions please reach out to your franchise managers Percy or Anthony.
