Our special feature this issue showcases Retail Franchises and we have been lucky enough to bring you expert articles from Dominique Lamb – CEO of the National Retail Association and Corina Vucic – Director of FC Business Solutions, who both bring a wealth of knowledge and vision on the retail sector.
Want to know more about the proposed Franchising Code changes? Readers can head to page 32 where Jason Gehrke – Director of the Franchise Advisory Centre, has provided franchisors with a breakdown of everything you should know related to the proposed changes.
As always there is plenty of franchising news, expert advice articles from our professional contributors and useful information for franchisors and franchisees alike.
