Testimonials from brands who attended the 2022 show

"It’s been really interesting here. We’ve had about 150 leads already and we’re looking forward to tomorrow and signing up new franchising partners while we're here. We’ve already re-booked for next year so let’s see how it goes!"

PKWG, on the afternoon of the first day

“A brilliant and extremely busy few days at The International Franchise Show in London. Thank you firstly to an amazing team who didn’t stop once due to how many enquiries were coming in - you guys smashed it… Secondly, Simon Chicken, what a great event and very well organised from start to finish. The attendance was fantastic and the quality came with quantity. Ellen Blandford thank you for your support and the kind words about our (quite frankly epic) stand”

“Two great days at The International Franchise Show at ExCeL London absolutely shattered today but lovely to catch up with industry professionals, fellow franchisors and potential franchisees”

Clare Robinson, Lifestyle Ambassador at British Franchise Association


Testimonials from brands who attended the 2021 show

“Today has been absolutely amazing ... the buzz is unreal, you can't beat that, you can't match it. The way you are able to network with people and follow up those conversations is absolutely one of a kind. We had a presentation and we were able to get across a lot of our information but actually there were so many people that wanted to follow up with us in person and were able to come to our stand and speak with us directly. There were so many of us [McDonald's franchisors] here that loads of people could be catered to. We're really happy to be here.”

Priya Sawh, McDonald's Restaurants Ltd

“This is our second year at the Franchise Show. It's been really awesome, it gets better every year. We've had some awesome leads this year [and] we've had some really good conversations with not only other businesses but with people coming through, we’re super excited for day two!”

Bianca Van Elteren, F45 Training

“This is our first franchise show and I can only say it's been fantastic. For the whole of the last two days, we've been packed out on our stand and I cannot believe the number of enquiries we've had. Thank you to everybody at the Franchise Show for giving us this opportunity.”

Lee Putner, CEO at Mostro Group Ltd
