After a stay in the USA as a software developer in the 1990s, the Munich-born Christian Türcke accompanied the initial phase of the Internet with an IT consulting company he founded. Christian Türcke has been actively involved in franchising for more than 20 years. In 2000, he opened the second Subway franchise restaurant in Germany. Since 2001, he and his team have been responsible for the development of the Subway brand in Bavaria, Austria and northern Italy, looking after partners at more than 150 locations.
Franchising is a great opportunity for many budding entrepreneurs to establish themselves quickly, successfully and sustainably in the market with the guidance and support of a strong franchising center.
As Chairman of the Franchise Partner Department, I see my role as actively promoting the exchange of experience and networking between partners of all franchise systems in German-speaking countries. I am pleased to be able to accompany and advance the topic of franchising in a future-oriented manner within the framework of the BFW.
