Joining forces with the UK’s biggest International Franchise Show

The International Franchise Show is thrilled to announce we’ve yet again teamed up with the original resettlement magazine, Pathfinder; a leading magazine amogst the Ex-Forces and Veterans sector! 

Pathfinder International is the leading monthly military resettlement magazine distributed to over 25,000 service personnel, civil servants and veterans wherever there is a military footprint. Started in 1991, Pathfinder also has a digital online version of the magazine. In 2018, Pathfinder launched the first ever military resettlement expo for BOTH serving military personnel and veterans. The current editor of Pathfinder is Mal Robinson.

Franchising and the Ex-forces have always paired well together, and Pathfinder already offers popular franchise avenues for those leaving the forces or veterans who’ve already left. Speaking about the partnership, Pathfinder editor, Mal Robinson comments:

"I am delighted that Pathfinder International magazine is working in partnership once more with the International Franchise Show in April 2020. 1 in 7 military service leavers opt to go into franchising as a second career and so it makes sense to be aligned with the largest franchising event, offering the latest information and up to date contacts in this sector to the UK's Armed Forces." 

Franchisees who possess the skills ingrained in them from a life in the forces exhibit qualities franchisors so frequently look for in potential candidates; drive, determination, and perseverance are just a few of the skills sought after.  

"We're so pleased to again welcome back Pathfinder Magazine after a successful partnership in 2019. Being a low-risk proven model, a franchise is a perfect opportunity for anyone comtemplating their next steps after a successful career in the forces. Come along and explore over 200 brands in more than 25 industry sectors this April" adds Joshua Christopher, Marketing Manager (The Franchise Show)

Over the last 11 years the International Franchise Show has firmly anchored its roots as the best UK franchise event to find your dream business opportunity. Your free ticket could open the door to becoming your own boss.
