Fast food franchising could be the way to go for a piece of the action for entrepreneurs looking to take on an established brand, says The Business.

It describes how JJ O’Hara, a Dublin-born man, arrived in Glasgow with £600 in his pocket and an ambition to run his own business. Two years later his Pizza Hut delivery restaurant in the city’s West End is flourishing after just three months in business.

Other franchises mentioned in the feature to draw attention to the National Franchise Exhibition at Birmingham National Exhibition Centre on October 11-12, are McDonald’s, KFC and Taco Bell.
