The Discovery Day is designed to answer all your questions about our franchise
To allow you to learn more about our business model, the support that we provide and of course to meet us, we run regular franchise Discovery Days here at our Support Centre in Norwich. The Discovery Days are free to attend and run from 10:00am until around 2:00pm. We always try to ensure you get to meet the key staff at the Support Centre including one or all of the five Executive Directors.
Many franchisors hold Discovery Days but you may be wondering what really is a Discovery Day? Will there be a heavy sales pitch? Will I be asked to sign on the line there and then?
Discovery Days are designed to allow the prospect and franchisor to meet face to face. For the prospect it is a chance to take a good look around the franchisor’s headquarters and to meet the people who will be supporting them should they join the network. For the franchisor it is a chance to meet their potential franchisee and to show them what a great opportunity is on offer.
What happens at a TaxAssist Accountants Discovery Day?
All our prospects have to attend a Discovery Day or have a face to face meeting before we would consider an application. It’s a two way process that gives the prospective franchisee a chance to meet the franchisor to see if the business opportunity is right for them and vice versa. A TaxAssist Discovery Day is a non-pressured, informative and free of charge event.
At the end of a TaxAssist Accountants Discovery Day you will have the opportunity to have a one to one meeting. Here you will be able to ask us any questions personal to you about the franchise, in private, and to discuss your next steps if you wish to find out more about joining us. We are always on hand for follow up questions and queries. Our mission is to give you the information and facts and let you go away and do things in your own time.
We recognise that investing in a franchise is a big decision, not just for you but also for your family, and you are welcome to bring a guest with you when you visit us, whether it be a business partner or a family member, that way they can learn first-hand about us and of course to meet us too.
Once you have had time to digest the information we provide you with, the next step is to work on both your financial business plan and written marketing plan, (templates are provided for both). We will guide you through your research and assist you with your planning towards your chosen training course.
Ravi Taggar our franchisee based in Kettering tells us about her Discovery Day experience:
‘My husband and I attended the Discovery Day to gain a better understanding of how an accountancy franchise would operate in practical terms and also to meet the people we had spoken to on the phone with all our initial queries and questions.
There was no doubt over the power of the brand and the name but we wanted to make sure that we would be supported throughout our journey as we were aware that successful franchising was dependent on the franchisor themselves. I am so glad we went, and we realised there was a reason that TaxAssist win so many awards on a regular basis! Both of us just ‘clicked’ with everyone we spoke to in Norwich. Questions we asked were answered honestly and frankly, and the fact that the directors played a large part in the presentations showed the commitment they have to their franchisees, and that they do actually care. Don’t forget they are vetting you too! The day was well structured and covered a lot of areas, and, in true TaxAssist style, the lunch was fab. The presentations made you feel there were no hidden costs, or that you would encounter any nasty surprises later down the line.‘For further information please call us today on 0800 0188 297 or click to send us an enquiry
