We visited the franchise exhibition in Birmingham to help us decide which business venture to pursue. We shortlisted three franchises – Banana Moon being one of them – and arranged to visit them to find out more, after the initial visit we decided that Banana Moon ticked all the boxes but we still needed to visit the other two franchises to have a comparison. After meeting with all three franchises we had no doubt that Banana Moon was the franchise that best suited our needs.
Another deciding factor was the name and branding which stood out from the other franchises and which we felt would attract more attention.
We have previous business experience but opted for a franchise for the advice and support and soon realised how important this is when setting up a childcare business and the invaluable ongoing support.
Like any business that you set up from nothing it is hard work and you sometimes wonder if you have done the right thing, but you regularly hear advice like ‘stick with it, follow the plan, it will happen’ and sure enough it does! My advice to anyone considering a Banana Moon Franchise is it will definitely work – some faster than others but you will always get there in the end, Banana Moon will make sure of it. In summary I’d say stick with it, follow the plan and it will happen, the proof is Banana Moon Bristol.
