Welcome to our September/October issue of Business Franchise Australia and New Zealand magazine.
We are delighted to feature Home Caring on our front cover; turn to page 12 to read about how this Australian home care business is dedicated to providing high quality, compassionate and trustworthy care and support services to their clients. With a growing majority of Australians wanting to live independently in their own homes and the pressure on the health care system during the COVID-19 crisis, it’s no surprise the demand for in-home care is skyrocketing.
Many franchise businesses are doing it tough through the COVID-19 crisis, especially in Victoria where a state of emergency has been declared into September. The Franchise Council of Australia continues to be a helpful resource for franchisors and franchisees throughout these uncertain times, read more from CEO Mary Aldred on page 14.
There’s no doubt we’re living in unprecedented times, but that also means new opportunities will emerge. For individuals with entrepreneurial goals, we think investing in a home service franchise makes sense, check out our special feature all about Home Services Franchises on page 31.
As always, readers will find plenty of franchising news, expert advice articles from our professional contributors, Profiles pieces, and our A-Z franchise listing directory with all of the best franchise opportunities available right now.
The Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo will run from 13-14 November 2020 at ICC Sydney as planned. Business Franchise magazine readers can register to visit any Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo for half price, using promo code CGB when purchasing your ticket at www.franchisingexpo.com.au.
