McDonald's Insight Hall

This seminar is the chance to find out what being McDonald’s franchisee is all about from company representatives, current franchisees and our banking partners. Most importantly, it’s an opportunity to speak to people who can answer all your questions in a panel question and answer session at the end.

McDonald's is always looking for hands-on, ambitious people who are ready to make a long-term commitment to their business. They require their franchisees to make a significant up-front financial investment, which means having at least £110,000 in unencumbered funds. If this is the kind of investment level that you are working with and you'll also be ready to lead from the front and work within a framework to give yourself the greatest chance of success, then you might well be the next Franchisee McDonald's would like to welcome.

Franchise Advice Zone

Sponsored by EWIF (Encouraging Women into Franchising) and FranchiseExpo.co.uk (UK's most comprehensive online franchise directory), this is your chance to receive excellent, independent advice & answers to your franchising questions from Franchise industry experts. This will be available in the advice zone throughout the duration of the event, offering free and unbiased advice on any aspect of franchising. So, whatever your query, you can find the answers here.

Master Licensing Matchmaking

Matching you, one-to-one, with Master Licence Brands

Many of the international brands exhibiting at the show are not currently trading in the UK, and are therefore offering you the opportunity to acquire the Master Franchise License. This will provide you with the exponential benefits of being responsible for not just one, but a whole network of these Franchises in the UK.

Our matchmaking service will enable you to have a 1-on-1 meeting with the Franchisor of the brand that you are interested in, allowing you to have exceptional access to gain an in-depth understanding of the brand and question the Franchisor.

If you have in interest in becoming a Master Franchisee, email us at hjenkins@mfvexpo.com, call us on 0330 1222 049 or sign up on the day in the Franchise Advice Zone.
