Franchising to star on tv this week

The buoyant franchising sector is in the spotlight for good reasons this week as the second series of The Franchise Show takes to the small screen.

The TV show features tips and advice for anyone interested in franchising and it tells the stories of real-life franchisees.

In its launch season of seven episodes the show reached an estimated 800,000 viewers.

Franchise partners include sponsor Retail Food Group brands Gloria Jean's Coffees, Brumby's Bakery and Crust Gourmet Pizza. Battery World has also joined the line-up.

Watch the first program in the new series at 12.30pm on Sunday 12 February on Channel 7.
