Franchised small businesses employ hundreds of thousands of Australians and contribute significantly to their local communities. The Franchise Council of Australia has a strong commitment to supporting the owners (franchisees) of these businesses and has commissioned a survey to better obtain updated information on the experiences, challenges and opportunities they face. If you are a franchisee please take the survey today. If you are a franchisor or advisor to the franchise sector please encourage all franchisees to undertake the survey to support the sector. The survey is short, mobile device friendly and should only take 4-5 minutes to complete. Survey responses are anonymous and confidential.
