Recent impacts triggered by the Coronavirus are causing many business owners to rethink their approach to business as the sudden social restrictions and consequent business downturn bring a spotlight on risks and costs of having staff / direct employees.
Franchising is one way that businesses can reduce liability and costs associated with having staff.
Franchisees are independent business owners who operate under your brand and business model. They can replace staff or be used to supplement staff. Being independent means they are responsible for their own wages, business costs and Industrial Award compliance. However, they are still part of your network and you still get to set the rules and control how they operate and how they serve your customers.
