Part of what we do here at Be Franchising is to help ambitious UK companies expand overseas. Two of our brands are doing just that by targeting Romania as a prime location. With over 20 million people, a growing economy and a strong self-employment mindset, Romania is a great place to expand. So, we will be attending the IFBE (franchising) exhibition there in September, supporting Bio-Mist and Zine and meeting some of the prospects we've already got lined up. Talk to us if you think your brand should be there. It's low cost but potentially high returns!
