Franchise your business

According to research by the British Franchise Association (BFA), permitting third parties to trade under your brand name is increasing popular as a growth strategy.

Currently there are over one thousand franchised brands in the UK. If this appeals to you, then you will need a brand with a reputation into which other people will want to buy into – i.e. potential franchisees. You will also need a brand that is distinctive and appropriate for all the geographic areas where you will want to establish and operate franchises.
