Successfully launching your franchise internationally means careful planning and a heaping dose of realism. It’s an unfortunate fact that most companies expanding internationally fail to achieve their objectives, and often for avoidable reasons. We’re here to help you do it once and do it right. Franchize Consultants also helps Kiwis who are considering bringing an international franchise system to New Zealand.
If your franchise is performing well in New Zealand, it could work well overseas with modifications. Think carefully before beginning the process, however.
Some international markets have strict franchising laws to comply with. You’ll also find there’s important differences in areas like population size, dispersion and levels of competition. This means you can’t just ‘lift and shift’ a franchise overseas.
Franchize Consultants’ team offers a wide range of international experience. Additionally, we can connect you with our worldwide network of franchise experts. We’re able to work with you to give your International Franchising project the best chance of success.
Importing a franchise
Popular international franchises can find success in New Zealand, but they’ll first need to be modified for Kiwi preferences. Even formats from a similar market such as Australia won’t thrive without tailoring – common stumbling blocks to trans-Tasman triumph include failure to adjust structuring fees and territories to New Zealand’s population and differing legal norms.
We’re ready to help you evaluate the opportunity. We’ll ensure any necessary changes are negotiated and made to the franchise agreement before you sign on the dotted line. When you work with us, you can be confident you’ll get a better deal.
