A Lesson in Growth from Tutor Doctor, Frank Milner

After just 7 years with the company, Tutor Doctor president Frank Milner has achieved some impressive things, including growing the company to reach 200 locations worldwide. This interview with Milner by Lizette Pirtle which appeared recently on the expansion experts blog, is one of those reads which really pushes you to succeed.

In the interview, Milner attributes the success of the franchise under his leadership to a range of factors, but it’s clear this is a man who is all about “making it happen for yourself”. If you’re feeling low on motivation, or need a little encouragement to push just that little bit harder in your own enterprises, this is a great quick read, full of plenty of franchise wisdom.

lobal Franchises & Culture Clashes


We recently thoroughly enjoyed this post by Callum Short on the Franchise Note blog all about the problem of culture clash for global franchises.

As you’ll know, one of the key advantages of franchising as a business model is rapid expansion across a large geographical area. But as Callum points out, few franchises have ever gone truly global, most find themselves limited by continent. Dependence on common culture and communal resources are one factor behind this, but in this post Callum Short examines the growing trend of “culture clash globalisation” in franchising. Interesting stuff.
