International franchises are on the increase, with a growing number of overseas franchises entering the Australian market. However, numerous master franchises that enter the Australian market end up failing.
The majority of these businesses fail because operators place too much focus on selling the deal, rather than expanding into the new country. Other franchises fail due to a lack of preparation for the Australian market and with little regard for market forces.
Prospective franchises can avoid potential failure by ensuring that the first store established in a new market is company-owned and returning a profit before franchises are sold. While the Australian franchise market is considered small on an international scale, the entry of large foreign players such as Costco and Aldi into the Australian market has spurred greater interest among other operators.*
