Flora Neighbour Things are S


ince I’m a sun-worshipper at heart, this is my favourite time of the year. We go to print with the magazine in late spring when there is a delicious hopefulness of what summer will bring. Whether it’s the thought of leaving the darker months behind, the idea of a fresh start, or perhaps the positivity vitamin D brings, I always feel summer is a great time for business.


Not only is it my favourite time of year,


it’s also my fi rst letter to readers as editor of the magazine. Jumping in at the deep end and managing the magazine was a daunting prospect, but one I have taken with pride and settled into comfortably. And this month I’m not alone…if you fl ick to page 27 you’ll be treated to our feature on running a management franchise. But, this isn’t just a personal guide to franchising; this is also your Show Guide to the British Franchise Exhibition in Manchester on 17 and 18 June. Head to page 33 to read our jam-packed guide to the event, where you’ll fi nd a full exhibitor list, a seminar timetable so you can pencil in the slots you want to pop along to, and a plan your journey section to avoid any travel mishaps! Make sure you turn to page 19 to


read about the benefi ts of investing in a vehicle-based franchise or, a personal favourite of mine, the feature on couples in franchising on page 57. Here, we’ve caught up with the partners who have

invested in a business as well as their relationship – an enviable commitment! I’m interested in the nitty-gritty of what makes a bond such as a marriage work on a professional level. Take for example the lovely Tim and Juliet Rylatt who have succeeded in working together with their ActionCOACH franchise. Tim is the creative one; he generates the energy with his clients, while Juliet is the organised one; she keeps Tim and the business in check. Sounds like the ideal combo! But, if working with your partner is not for you, don’t fear, the magazine contains in-depth articles, opportunities and invaluable advice from the experts to help you on your path to success, whatever route you decide to take.


What with the weather warming up and plenty of investment opportunities on the horizon, summer looks set to sizzle. So, from all of us at Business Franchise magazine, thanks for reading and we hope this issue gets the wheels turning for a rewarding summer.
