Its true. Australia has more franchises per capita than America
We are also a test nation for franchises because we are a tiny population compared with America or Europe and certainly Asia.
In the cafe scene Aussie businessman take to New York like it’s a playground. Bluestone cafe chain has opened six venues in a few years.
Franchise may be a dirty word for some. For me it’s the synergy between people and systems that brings a CEO vision to bare in a sustainable and flexible model.
Systems are most necessary when you don’t have the right person. When you have the right person you don’t need to tell them what to do; technologies and process become tools augmenting that human asset. This is as rare as a #unicorn so that’s why we build systems and process and documentation .
Standing firm then I believe systems build pathways towards finding the right people and optimising them to your CEO vision.
