Compete & Succeed


Business has got more competitive and more complicated these days. If you don’t keep up with changing tastes and changing technology, your sales will decline. If you don’t have real buying power with suppliers and landlords, you can’t charge competitive prices. Put these together and it can be hard for small businesses to make a profit.

That’s the beauty of franchising. Franchisees enjoy the benefits of specialist help when it comes to marketing, product development, computer systems, suppliers and much, much more. A good franchise gives the small business owner the chance to compete with the big boys. No wonder it’s so popular with New Zealanders.

On this website, you’ll find new ideas from home and overseas; new opportunities from well-established brands; and new locations available all around the country. But you still need to be careful if you’re to find an opportunity that suits your own abilities, goals and financial needs. Find out more about buying a franchised business here.

Getting into business is a big decision, so remember ­– if you choose wisely, buying a franchise can give you all the advantages you need to compete and succeed.
