Ashtons Franchise joins EWIF - encouraging women into franchising

Posted 05/07/2017 : By: Debbie Dennis

Ashtons Franchise Consulting (AFC) are pleased to announce that they have just become members of EWIF (encouraging women into franchising).

The 2015 NatWest/bfa survey recently revealed that women now account for just 23% of franchisees in the UK. The survey also revealed that over the last two years, only 17% of new franchisees have been women. Franchising is a very flexible model in that many franchises have the capability to be run from home offices to fit in with other commitments.

EWIF is a not for profit organization run by volunteers and AFC look forward to working with them and contributing to this great support network.
