Management Franchises

Management Franchises remain to top choice amongst white collar franchise seekers. With business consultancy services estimated to be worth £7bn to the UK economy. Many companies chose to employ franchised business consultants in order to reduce costs and improve their businesses operations.

This can be both enjoyable and a lucrative area of business. Working as a management consultant is considered by many to be a professional role, if you have a passion for business and are brimming with enthusiasm, the training programmes that many management franchise can provide you with the right skills, techniques and on-going support required for you to operate your franchise.

A management franchise can also offer a good life work balance, with consultancy hours mainly being set around traditional office hours, a management franchise could be the solution for more leisure time and is ideal for people who enjoy business and have a desire to inspire other local businesses to thrive.

Home Improvement Franchises

The UK DIY market alone was forecast to be worth over £8.3bn in 2017 so the home improvement market in the UK is a huge opportunity for anyone interested in the sector.

So what sort of home improvement franchises are available? Some of the different types of home improvement franchises include;

  • Granite worktops and other granite sheets for kitchen and bathroom renovations
  • Locksmith franchises

As more and more pressure is put on governments and local authority to build more new homes this will no doubt increase demand for the above for both the new home build market and ongoing for renovation and repair works. Many people seeking this sort of opportunity may already have a trade and industry experience and wish to work for themselves but with the backing of a franchise brand to help with new business generation and any existing contractual business locally but all franchises usually offer full training and support so dependant on the home improvement franchise this could be a way for someone to change direction.

As with any business opportunity or business purchase you need to take professional advice and carry out due diligence before you invest.

Van based Franchises

Van based franchises are a popular choice for many people seeking a new career opportunity. With a van based franchise there is a huge variety of options available offering freedom to run your business without necessarily needing to employ any staff or allow incur large overheads connected to commercial premises, shops etc. So what types of van based franchises are available?

Home Improvement & Disaster Recovery 

These services are at the top of the list of insurance companies & homeowners in a time of crisis, when there is a disaster at home, such as a fire or flood and many several franchise networks have been grown into national networks just supplying major insurers.

Courier 

This type of van franchise is an attractive option for many franchise seekers, who like to be out and about dropping off parcels to businesses and homeowners. Courier franchises can be flexible and some are low or even no investment and sometimes can even be run alongside an existing business or full or part-time job to create even more flexibility.

Oven Cleaning

Mobile Coffee Shop 

Coffee shops have grown to a huge size in the UK and is worth billions to the UK economy but there are now mobile coffee shop franchises that can tap into this growing market. The beauty of this sort of franchise is that you can take a quality product to areas that may not have had a major coffee brand nearby such as offices or industrial premises in retail and/or industrial estates. They also benefit from far lower overheads compared to retail coffee shops which are usually in expensive, prime retail locations.

Low Cost Franchises

So what is a low cost franchise? Well I suppose everyone will have a different definition of what they think a low cost opportunity is but for these purposes we will use an investment level of £15,000 or less as the guide price for a low cost franchise.

So does low cost therefore mean low earnings or profit? No, some low or even no upfront investment franchise or business opportunities can represent very high earnings potential. So why would a franchise business sell it a low cost even if the earnings potential was high? Well the initial franchise is generally determined by the cost to set-up which includes training, equipment, product and premises not the actual earnings potential. Sure sometimes with a recognized brand just the area alone will have a impact on the price as the largest the franchise area or territory, the more business will be obtained. That said that’s generally not the case for less known brands or new brands and if a franchise requires a lot of franchisees to provide national coverage and set-up costs are quite low then many will have an initial fee of under £15,000 to try to recruit as many franchisees as quickly as possible to grow their brand and provide a better service to their customers.

Some of the low cost franchises for sale under £15,000 include product distribution, pet related, children fitness and swimming, travel agency and even financial and business advice franchises so there is a huge choice of opportunity even if you are seeking a lower initial investment. The main thing to consider if the “overall” investment, just because a franchise has a low initial fee doesnt mean you won’t need to invest additional funds so when choosing a low cost franchise opportunity make sure you find out about all costs involved before you invest and as always seek professional advice.

Just because a franchise investment is low cost doesnt mean you should not carry out thorough research before you make any commitment. Regardless of initial investment check out the business and seek professional advice.

Gardening Franchises

With gardeners spending a whopping £1.5bn per year on plants for their gardens in the UK gardening is a very high growth and lucrative business sector.  A weekend visit to one of the 2300 UK garden centres and nursery is often a must for UK homeowners, according to a 2016 survey conducted by Horticultural Trades Association.  Horticulture and gardening is an area of interest for many, with middle aged consumers often the big spenders in this industry.

Many choose to employ professional gardeners to perform tasks that they neither have time or inclination for such as;

  • Mowing
  • Hedge cutting
  • Lawn care
  • Landscaping
  • Tree surgery

Gardening franchises that tap into this huge market have been around a long time and some have grown substantial UK businesses via franchising. The beauty of this sort of business is that things grow! Yes silly statement but all of the above will require ongoing attention and therefore make it far easier to grow, excuse the pun, your business. Good gardener are also very hard to find so many of them receive a high level of referral business, probably because of the visibility at customers ( van signage etc ) so can rely a lot less on any ongoing marketing again increasing profitability.
