Franchise New Zealand
Franchise New Zealand magazine & website has been the primary source of information about business format franchising in New Zealand for over 20 years. By providing prospective business buyers with expert advice, and sharing case studies and information about best practice processes with franchisors, Franchise New Zealand has been at the heart of the remarkable growth of franchising in this country since 1992. Today, NZ has more franchise systems and more franchisees per capita than any other country in the world. We believe this is good news, as it has allowed many SMES to upskill themselves, enjoy the benefit of benchmarking and well-developed systems, and compete successfully in a small market often dominated by one or two large companies – see http://franchise.co.nz/article/1259
