Today on StartupSmart, we show why it’s important to choose the right time to grow your business via franchising.
John Newton, founder of party hire business Jumping J-Jays, now has a 21-strong network of franchisees, each making at least $100,000 a year.
But Newton had three “painful” years when he ran the business remotely, to bad customer feedback, before realising that the best way forward was to use franchisees. Today, he explains how he did it.
Elsewhere, we have news of Canberra start-up Gift A Ball’s expansion to the US and mentor Philip Alexander has some words of advice for an entrepreneur concerned about age being a factor for investors.
