FROM THE EDITOR 03 June 2014

Is 2014 the year to get into your own business?


The statistics on business and franchise confidence might have reduced a little from their record highs earlier this year, but there seems little doubt that New Zealand is in good heart. Even Westpac's chief economist says it’s time to ease up on the pessimism!

Of course, the statistics tend to measure the confidence of those already in business, rather than those looking to buy a business. If you’re already in business, you can see the recovery happening, whereas if you’re still looking to buy, you might be more cautious. Wait too long, though, and you could miss the chance to get in at the start of something big or get the opportunity you want in the area you want.

The good news is that others have been waiting too – in fact, franchisors report that the availability of suitable franchisees is one of the biggest barriers to growth. So if you’re serious about getting into business in 2014, start looking for the right opportunity now. On this site you’ll find franchise profiles, a directory of over 250 franchises and master franchise opportunities, and lots of advice to help you make the right choice. Happy hunting!
