- Granite worktops and other granite sheets for kitchen and bathroom renovations
- Locksmith franchises
- Guttering & roofing
- Disaster recover, fire, flood etc

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.

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;
- Hedge cutting
- Lawn care
- 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.
