How do I become a Franchisee?

Get started as a Franchisee with the Certificate IV in Small Business Management or the Certificate IV in Franchising. These courses take 6-12 months to complete and will help you develop a business, finance, and marketing plan for your business.

Apart from skills and training, you’ll also need working capital and finance to buy the franchising rights and business premises. Franchisees can start their franchised business in three ways; Convert their existing business to a franchise (eg, your independent real estate becomes an LJ Hooker), buy an existing franchised business that has already been operating (eg, you buy your local LJ Hooker that has been operating for 10 years) and then setup a new franchise outlet (eg, you buy commercial premises and trade as an LJ Hooker).
