Looking to take your business to other countries?

We Can Help You!

It has long been said that any business which operates, or could operate, as a branch network should at least consider franchising as a means to expansion – and this is nowhere truer than when taking your business to International Markets.

Let us tell you why!

You may have already decided to expand abroad and may even have decided which country or countries you want to enter. Or you may just be thinking about it as an alternative to growing your business further in the UK. Either way you will have a lot to think about, and in the following pages we will try to explain to you some of the issues you will have to consider, what the possible options are for each one of them and how we, as International Franchise Consultants, can help you in the process.

One thing we know for certain! For most businesses looking to expand overseas, Franchising is without any doubt the easiest and most successful route to achieve international growth. That’s why even big companies like Marks & Spencer, Arcadia Group (Top Shop, Top Man, Miss Selfridge etc) and Mothercare, amongst many others, chose franchising as their route to International Expansion. These are all companies with the brand strength, track records and financial and management resources to go it alone, but who have chosen to expand by working with experienced local partners in their target markets. But it’s not just retailers who are using franchising as their route to international expansion.

We have worked with businesses from a variety of sectors, including Social Care, Education, Children’s Activities and Restaurants and Food Service offerings. The one thing they had in common was a desire to be successful internationally and they chose to work with our International Franchise Consultancy team.

We said Franchising is the easiest way but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy. Luckily, we can help you there.

Water Babies is expanding internationally. We approached The Franchising Centre to help us to do that. You absolutely have to have professional advice. If you think you can do it on your own, I really would urge you to think again. You will get is so badly wrong. I really believe that. So do get proper professional advice. There are things that you would not even begun to have thought about, that you will the benefit of that advice.

…we have used the international arm of The Franchising Centre, and, in working with Farrah Rose, who has helped us and guided us through that process, they have been amazing. I can’t use another word, absolutely amazing.

We first became aware of The Franchising Centre at the Franchise Exhibition at London’s Olympia and were recommended them by our bank – HSBC. I first met Farrah Rose – their international franchising consultant – on the stand there, and from that initial discussion, I knew I had found the source of advice and support we had been looking for. 

As a small company with global aspirations and a great product, we needed expert, no-nonsense advice and guidance to point us in the right direction. Over the course of a number of phone calls and then a whole day with Farrah at our offices, we were able to plan and analyse our various options with far greater clarity and confidence than would otherwise have been the case. 

The investment in Farrah’s time at this stage was worth every penny and will in the long run no doubt save us an immense amount of time and effort and has undoubtedly helped to de-risk what is an inherently risky venture. I have no doubt that Farrah represents the very best in franchising consultancy and has been a real pleasure to work with and to get to know. I recommend The Franchising Centre wholeheartedly.
