Though each and every step of your business development, you'll have a team of franchise experts backing you up and helping you succeed.

WHAT IS FRANCHISING?

Franchising is a systematised way of doing business that provides you the use of a brand's trademark, marketing programs, and operating systems while offering you continued access to professional support.  According to the the NatWest/bfa Franchise Survey 2011, now in its twenty-seventh year, remains the leading study of franchising in the UK.

Key stats

  •  
    • The UK franchise industry is now estimated to be worth £12.4 billion
    • The overall number of franchise systems in the UK is 897
    • Number of franchisee outlets is 36,900
    • There are an estimated 521,000 people employed in franchising in the UK
    • Percentage of units profitable (including new businesses): 90%

WHY FRANCHISE?

When you choose to buy a franchise business, here are a few of the many benefits that await you:

• The franchisor has an established brand presence in the industry, has differentiated themselves from the competitors, understands the consumer demand, and has refined the franchise business model to reduce your risk of failure and improve your chances for success.
• You will open with immediate brand equity and benefit from the appeal and trust consumers have in a well known and established brand.
• You're part of a larger franchise business entity. With strength in numbers, you will realise economies of scale in purchasing power across vendors and the media.
• Typically, no experience is necessary. In fact, most franchisors will want to train you in their way of doing business. You will receive initial training to open and to operate the business, and on-going franchise training to enhance operating efficiencies and effectiveness.
· You'll have well-honed, turnkey franchise systems to run your business.

· You'll receive customisable franchise marketing materials and an advertising plan to help you grow your business.

• You'll have a network of franchise peers to consult, and a home-office staff of experienced franchise professionals for on-going support and counsel.
• The franchisor strongly shares an interest in your success and has crafted this model to help you achieve it.
