The last two and half decades have been an incredible journey in the world of franchising. We’ve seen it grow into one of the UK’s most dynamic sectors, with around 1000 different UK brands embracing the benefits of franchising and using it to sustainably and effectively expand their businesses.
Franchising has proven to be an incredibly robust approach to business growth which has withstood all the ups and downs of the economy, and even a global pandemic!

25 Years of World-Class Franchising Advice and Consultancy
Constantly striving to bring you a superior service
As you will read in the article, The Franchising Centre was founded to help shape the evolutionary future of franchising in all its forms. Just as we have helped thousands of franchises around the world to improve and perfect their offerings, so too do we constantly strive to adapt and grow.
Even though 2021 was our best ever year, despite the challenges we all still faced, we’re not ones to rest on our laurels! Quite the opposite, in fact – we’re taking this opportunity to double down on what we can offer you by recruiting new consultants and introducing a new key service.
Introducing our four newest franchising experts
We’ve always prided ourselves on the quality of our team, which is why we are very proud to welcome the four newest franchise consultants who have joined us in the last six months. They come from a huge variety of backgrounds, including F&B, home renovation, sales, care, logistics, and finance.

What makes our team stand out from the crowd?
Franchising may well be the quickest and most cost-effective way to grow your business, but that’s not to say it’s easy. Fulfilling your true potential as a franchise means having the right expertise and advice.
Our consultants are the very best in the industry to guide you because they have real, in-depth experience of franchising. Many of them have been both franchisees and franchisors themselves! They have a deep understanding of what it takes to succeed as a franchise, and to keep succeeding for years to come.
Perhaps most importantly, they have a true understanding of how the relationship between franchisors and franchisees should work – which, in our experience, is by far the most underestimated and least understood parts of successful franchising.
Our expert consultants are certainly one of the biggest reasons why you should choose to work with The Franchising Centre, but they are certainly not the only one. We can also help you to:
- Understand the steps to successful franchising with an in-depth development plan
- Attract the right kind of franchisees for your growing business
- Recruit the very best franchisees and make the most of your leads
- Understand how to manage and support your franchisees to get the most out of your partnership
- Discover how to launch your franchising internationally and tap into lucrative new markets
Our newest essential service – Franchise Support & Mentoring
By having such a breadth and depth of industry-specific experience on our team, we are now able to perfectly match you with one of our consultants to guide you through every aspect of your development as a franchise. By relying on them for guidance and support you’ll be able to rise to any challenge and still have time to focus your energy on your core business.
They’ll be able to offer you a whole slew of individually tailored services and solutions, including marketing, brand development, sales, CRM, managing and monitoring franchise performance, and many more.
