Haines Watts become Ambassadors for Encouraging Women in Franchising

I’m proud to announce that Haines Watts have become ambassadors for Encouraging Women in Franchising (EWiF).

EWiF is built on a community of Ambassadors, who offer services to women seeking advice and guidance on entering the franchise industry.

As an Ambassador, Haines Watts will be actively reaching out to women who may be looking to own their own business or expand their existing business. We will be attending EWiF Regional meetings regularly and supporting EWiF in every way we can.

EWiF are looking to change the face of the franchise sector so that women have a much larger presence. Over the past three years, 37% of all new franchisees joining the industry have been female – that’s a huge rise of 20% since 2015.

The EWiF mission is to support women who are looking for a route into the franchise industry. This includes encouraging women to consider buying a franchise, to encourage business women to franchise their existing operations and to help franchisors attract more women to their networks.

EWiF are a not-for-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers, providing advice and guidance to anyone looking at trying to break into the franchise industry.

If you are interested in finding out more or need financial help and advice on setting up or buying a franchise, please get in touch with our offices in Chester, Wirral and Liverpool.
