Franchising Leading The Recovery- July 2016

It may be doom and gloom in the press and on the news and some people will be worried about their jobs following the Brexit decision.

We still believe however that Franchising has a great deal to offer as part of the recovery as it's solid principles, training and support networks provide an excellent way for franchisees to build a safe and secure future for their families.

Never undervalue the fact that whilst franchising can provide a solid proven system on which to build a business, it only works when allied to the hard work and determination that a successful franchisee brings.

NatWest Franchise Survey

Franchising has been in robust health for many years, despite the U.K.'s economic downturn, but the 2015 Survey reveals how it continues to go from strength to strength.

Franchising contributed £15.1bn to the UK economy last year, an increase of 46% over the past ten years and up more than 10% since the last survey was published in 2013. According to the research, the sector now employs 621,000 people, of which 321,000 are in full-time employment. This also represents an increase of over 10% since 2013 and 70% over the last ten years. Reflecting an upward trend in employment, the survey revealed that a third of franchise-owned businesses now employ ten or more staff.   

Further findings show that the number of franchise-owned businesses increased by 14% in the space two years, hitting 44,200 in 2015, with over half reporting an annual turnover of more than £250,000.

More impressive still, a record 97% of franchise-owned outlets reported profitability last year, with 56% saying they are 'quite' or 'very' profitable. This coincides with a low rate of commercial failure: just 1% of franchise businesses had to close their doors for this reason in 2015

Franchise opportunities represent an excellent way to get into business. They allow a franchisee to build on a successful and proven business format with strong methods, systems and brand awareness. Never for one minute believe that is enough. It still takes hard work, dedication, enthusiasm and energy to make your business a success.

A bit of sceptism on both sides is a good thing for the initial franchise interview. Both sides should be asking themselves can I work with this person. Relationships are important , make sure you meet the franchise manager that will be working with you.
