Join the Franchise Boom in the ACT
There’s never been a better time to do business in the ACT. Canberra is thriving, with business confidence at a five year high according to a Sensis Business Index (SBI) survey.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics September job figures also show that the unemployment rate is one of the lowest in Australia, at 3.6% versus the national average of 5.7%.
“Businesses in the ACT are feeling positive about their own specific business strengths and also reported healthy, growing sales,” said Sensis Chief Executive John Allen.
Canberra famously gets a lukewarm rap from its bigger neighbours, but these days that’s more of an old chestnut than an actual reality. In fact, it has a huge amount to offer in terms of quality living. It has regularly ranked in the top liveable cities in the world in terms of wellbeing, based on factors such as access to education, health services, income levels, jobs, environment and safety.
For those who have always dreamed of running their own business but aren’t sure where to start, becoming part of a franchise can be a great launching pad, giving you ‘independence with support.’ A national organisation can give the support and mentorship that novices need to forge ahead.
Jamaica Blue™ has several franchise locations available in ACT. It’s operated by the Foodco Group, one of Australia’s leading franchisors with more than 28 years’ experience in food and retail franchising.
By investing in a Jamaica Blue café business, you’ll also receive world-class, nationally accredited business and operational training to prepare you for success. This is essential for anyone looking to transition from a different professional background; Jamaica Blue can give you the confidence to become a part of the business growth that the ACT is enjoying.
