Franchising is not the weak link in the business world according to the Franchise Council of Australia’s executive director Steve Wright. Wright has fought back against media and public criticism of franchising, highlighted by the collapse of Kleenmaid, by pinpointing the current trading successes of some key franchise brands.
Delegates at recent state conferences have heard how Clark Rubber, Eagle Boys Pizza and PoolWerx have all reported strong sales growth.
PoolWerx CEO John O’Brien reported sales and profitability were up in the first four months of 2009, with sales growth of 19 percent compared to last year’s corresponding period.
Pizza brand Eagle Boys has had double digit growth year on year and has 16 new stores opening in the next six weeks and plans a further 50 before 2010.
