People choose to franchise for a variety of reasons. From being unable to reach your full potential in your current career, lack of flexibility in the workplace, or simply wanting to be your own boss using a tried and tested business model. Women deciding to go into self-employment are increasingly more drawn to franchising as they are able to start a business confidently with the ongoing support and training from an established brand.
Leona shares her franchise experience, her day to day work and advice for aspiring franchisees.
Why did you decide to open a Rush franchise?
My passion is for hairdressing but I also have strong business acumen so franchising was the next logical step for me. Rush really supports all their employees and encourages growth within the company through their various training courses, I wanted to pursue the business side of hairdressing and to own my own salon so decided to franchise.
