Numbers that matter
We’ve just published the 100th issue of Franchise New Zealand magazine and we’re celebrating. A recent survey showed that New Zealand is the most franchised country in the world.
This matters because franchises create jobs – almost 125,000 of them. It matters because 37,000 franchised units here are locally-owned businesses. It matters because franchises pay taxes here, rather than shipping profits off-shore. And it matters because franchises help Kiwis compete in an increasingly global market.
We’re also celebrating 20 years of this website, which is dedicated to helping New Zealanders find out about franchising and franchise opportunities. There are hundreds of helpful articles, business profiles, and information on franchise opportunities of all kinds. You can also find the help you need in our Advisors section. Use the panel on the left to get started.
