I Want to Franchise My Business

Franchising can be one of the best ways to create rapid, profitable growth for your business

When it comes to the potential of franchising your business, the main questions to get answers to are:

“Why choose franchising?”
“Can I, and should I franchise my business?”
“What are the steps to franchise my business?”

Can I, and Should I, Franchise?

I’m Paul Thompson, co-founder of Water Babies. We are a baby swimming company. We teach children from zero to four years of age, but our specialty is under one, our youngest ever client being 2 days old.

We started working with The Franchising Centre within one year of Water Babies starting and it’s never stopped. To be perfectly frank, we wouldn’t be here without that initial relationship…It’s as simple as that.

Paul Thompson

Co-Founder, Water Babies

Utilitywise plc engaged with Alan Wilkinson, from The Franchising Centre, to help us conduct a feasibility study with the aim of establishing whether franchising would provide us with an additional route to market.

From the very beginning of this process their insights, experience, attention to detail and enthusiasm made this a really painless experience. Never afraid to challenge us on our assumptions, Alan’s rigour and analytical approach, coupled with his own extensive experience of developing and operating franchises, allowed us to create and refine our model. Having completed the feasibility phase, we presented the outputs to our Board of Directors who approved the implementation of our franchise model.

I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending The Franchising Centre to any organisation considering franchising as a sales channel.

Yashin Sarnaik

Partner Channel Director, Utilitywise plc

The Franchising Centre has been most influential in moving our business to the next level. Their guidance and support has been paramount and encouragement with monthly tasks has kept us focused and allowed us to reach our targets.

From a small independent business we are now ready to launch Tots at the Top onto the nationwide market. This process has been challenging but with smooth management, nurturing and great depth of knowledge about the franchise system, we have ventured out of our comfort zone, learnt so much and feel confident to drive our business forward.

The Franchising Centre has a broad list of contacts readily available to help with legal documents, computer systems and websites, all necessary when franchising your business.

Many thanks for your expertise.

Ann Stephens & Jane Powell

Founders, Tots at the Top

We have worked with The Franchising Centre for over 3 years.

Alan became involved with launching the pilot operation for our Blazes Heating franchise in the summer of 2007. They worked closely with ‘us in developing the concept, and subsequently helped us to recruit double our target of new franchisees in the first year of launch.

This has created a solid foundation for our new franchise business. We have been impressed by The Franchising Centre’s professionalism and experience, and would highly recommend their services to any prospective or practicing franchisor.

Managing Director, Blazes Heating Limited
