The Franchise Coach


Philadelphia now part of "The Franchise Coach".

On April 1, 2007 "The Franchise Coach" acquired a majority shareholding in the Philadelphia Consulting Group, an Auckland-based consultancy specialising in business advisory services.

David McCulloch, "The Franchise Coach" Managing Director, described the acquisition as implementation of a strategy to more obviously raise "The Franchise Coach" profile among corporate businesses within New Zealand, Australasia and the Pacific Basin.

“SME’s will always be our core business, but equally as more corporates introduce franchising to their business structures, it is important for the future growth and development of "The Franchise Coach" to be seen and recognised as having the resources to more than meet the needs of large businesses, particularly at the personnel level where corporate management and directors need to engage with people whose skill sets they can relate to.

“As with most businesses, we’re confident expansion and growth will enable us to do even more than we do now for our clients.”

"The Franchise Coach" has relocated to premises at Level 1, Cnr 401 Great South Road and Rockfield Road, Ellerslie and has a new phone number, 64 - 9 - 580 1556.

Philadelphia Consulting Group consults to a range of businesses and organisations over a wide range of areas including marketing, sales development, profit improvement and business investment.

An additional area of expertise is Business Immigration Services with particular emphasis on preparing business plans meeting requirements of Long Term Business Visa and Entrepreneur Schemes, business purchase and establishment, and ongoing mentoring and assistance.
