Franchise New Zealand - New Zealand’s premier source of franchising information since 1992.
Free quality information, advice and details of hundreds of franchise opportunities now available in New Zealand, searchable by industry and price range.
Congratulations to Jessica Linnell of Mt Maunganui. The 21-year-old is one of just 50 young entrepreneurs worldwide to have been named as a next-generation leader in franchising by the US-based International Franchise Association Education Foundation. Jessica entered the competition after reading about it in our email newsletter, and now she’s on her way to Las Vegas to meet some of the biggest names in the franchise world.
Jessica’s success reinforces the fact that we have considerable franchise expertise here. Few people realise that New Zealand is actually the most franchised country in the world with more franchise brands and more franchisees per capita than any other country. It seems that franchising’s unique combination of local ownership with big-name support and buying power is uniquely suited to our geography and the Kiwi can-do attitude.
But even in NZ, if you buy a franchise it still doesn’t guarantee success, which is why this site doesn't just feature opportunities and profile franchises – we also offer advice on finding the right franchise and details of people who can help. So if you want to buy a business with the support of a good franchise behind you, start here.
