New alliance opens doors in Asia
A new partnership between fast-growing Asian franchise specialist and an Australian partner is expected to open doors into the world’s most populous continent for Australiasian businesses.
VF Franchise Consulting has signed an agreement with Australian-based Global Franchise Partners to help take Australian brands into Vietnam.
This collaboration will give VF Franchise Consulting the sole exclusivity to work with Global Franchise Partners’ strong Australian network and relationship with Australian Franchisors, Master Franchisees, and investor groups to enter one of the most promising markets in southeast Asia.
VF Franchise Consulting, which also has offices in Singapore and Bangkok specialises in providing franchising and management consultancy services to clients in the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), a region with a booming population of over 650 million people. Its partners have over 70 years’ combined international experience in strategic business planning, franchising development and operations, business development, real estate, financial advisory, corporate training and project management.
Some of VF Franchise Consulting’s global clients include Denny’s, Texas Fried Chicken, Round Table Pizza, New Horizons, The Vitamin Shoppe and regional brands like Manhattan Fish Market and Shakespeare & Co from the UAE.
Sean Ngo, MD of VF Franchise Consulting believes Global Franchise Partners, led by Gidon Rosing, is an organisation with strong leadership skills and a positive solution-focused approach. Global Franchise Partners has many decades of experience in the franchising, mergers and acquisitions and international business sectors.
“With these strong credentials in identifying opportunities, both VF Franchise Consulting and Global Franchise Partners will be able to forge a robust partnership in allowing more Australian franchise models enter Vietnam. This will in turn allow local Vietnamese greater exposure to Australian concepts and products and give them an opportunity to taste more Australian food in Vietnam.”
