„In Austria the franchising industry has more than 100.000 employees and a turnover of approx. 8 billion EURO, which is a very healthy contribution to the domestic economy. It is only a logical consequence that we, as the largest national representation of the interests of franchisers and franchisees, wholeheartedly support and encourage the initiative to carry out a Franchise Fair that is equally attractive to exhibitors and visitors alike. In Cox Orange we have an experienced partner who knows how to make such an event into a resounding success. It is most crucial for young, growing systems to participate in a trade fair of this kind and present themselves to potential partners. However, well-established franchise systems will also benefit. McDonald’s will certainly be there.“
"Two partners reading off the same page“
"The benefits of franchising are numerous. However, the most decisive factor is that both the franchiser and the franchisee have the same targets: mutual success. The success of the individual is inextricably linked with the success of all and the most important factor for success in franchising is clearly the open, fair and reliable relationship between franchiser and franchisee - a partnership with each other. For this reason it is even more crucial at the start to find the correct partner - for both parties. A Franchise Fair offers an excellent opportunity to obtain information and make 'first contact' with potential franchise partners. I am convinced that there is more entrepreneurial spirit in Austria as often assumed and that our country is primed for its own Franchise Fair. The Austrian Franchise Association stands fully behind this initiative."
