BNI was established in 1985 and began franchising in 1991. The franchise has established itself in 49 countries throughout the world and has shown year-on-year growth in subscriptions.
BNI has a proven track record as a franchise and it is a business model able to grow in any economic environment.
Why Our Franchise is Different..
Franchises are often either low cost/high risk or are high cost/low risk. Low cost/high risk franchises have a low capital investment but the product is unproven or the franchise is new. With high cost/low risk franchises the opposite is true; they have a requirement for a large capital investment but the product is proven. Many of the well-known fast-food chains fit into this category.
BNI offers a low cost/low risk proposition – in essence, the best of both worlds. As a BNI franchisee you can “try before you buy”. This means you can spend up to 18 months running the franchise, during which time you are creating revenue for yourself before committing to buy the franchise. This requires a small investment of less than 20% of the total franchise fee. You will therefore have time to see how the business works, its potential and if it is right for you.
During this period we give you full training and support to successfully meet the requirements for purchase, helping you to maximize your investment in both the short and long term. This means that we have a mutual selection process, which is one of the keys to BNI’s success.
