Merchandising can be a lucrative market, with scope for growth as your franchise becomes more established. Unlike setting up a sales operation from scratch, by investing in a franchise, the supply chain, training and support is already in place. So your business will be up and running in no time.

Whether you would like to retail, gifts, accessories, newspapers there is a merchandising franchise available for most products we need to purchase on a frequent basis.

The trick is finding out what franchises gleam greater customer loyalty and retention.

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.


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 

Many homeowners and businesses recognise the efficiency of professional oven cleaning. This business is a great source of repeat business as well as of course the oven will need to be cleaned on a regular basis.

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.

These automotive franchises specialise in many automotive services including alloy wheel repair, dent and scratch removal, windscreen repair & mobile tyre replacement.

Us Brits love our gardens and are prepared to spend, spend, spend to keep them looking good, there are many different type of gardening van based franchises available.  The specialist services provided include professional lawn care and maintenance, fencing, garden design and landscaping. If you enjoy working outdoors gardening franchises could be a viable business option.

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.

Courier Franchises

According to the Financial Times the UK parcel delivery market alone in the UK is worth £10bn per year in annual turnover with a large chunk of the market being as would be expected the B2B courier business sector.

So why do people buy a courier franchise? There are many reasons this sort of career would appeal to people including being able to work the hours they want, effectively controlling their income. Also you are not tied to an office or place of business and this freedom does really appeal to a lot of franchise or business opportunity seekers. Another advantage of a courier franchise is that usually the investment level is low. You will probably need your own vehicle or van but other than that the set-up franchise fees are usually pretty low so you can recoup this quite quickly unlike some other franchises that require a large upfront investment that may take a long time to recoup.

Automotive Franchises

We Brits love our cars, according to a study by the BBC in 2016 the number of cars alone on the roads increased by over 600,000 per year to a staggering 25.8 million! As the number of cars increases of course the number of a franchisees potential clients increases so automotive franchises have been very successful, particularly over the last 5-7 years.

There are many type of automotive franchises including car bumper & scratch repair, windscreen repair, valeting & detailing, tuning so there is a great amount of choice for you if you are seeking a new business within the automotive business sector, which according to the SMMT the automotive sector is worth over £77bn a year to the UK economy.

So what sort of person do you need to change career and set-up an automotive business franchise? You may have previous industry experience but what’s great about franchising is with every franchise you will receive full training and support from the franchisor so many will not require previous automotive experience.
