Hi!
My question - for research purposes - is about what services (marketing, training, support) you can normally expect to get from the franchiser, and what fees you can expect to pay as a franchisee (ball-park figure) for starting up your language school.

If any franchisers / franchisees can tell me about their offer and/or experiences then perfect!

Information such as breakdown of the fees would be of particular interest:

For example:
Equipment
Initial inventory
Franchising fee

Thanks in advance,
James.

They don't seem to be afiliated to the Which guides.

Look interesting but doesn't seem to have direct links with BFA
