What is a master franchise? And why invest in one?

Master franchises are those franchises which have proven successful elsewhere and are now looking to replicate this success in the UK. They are however not proven in the UK and whilst they may be hugely successful in their own country, it doesn't necessarily mean that what works somewhere else will necessarily work here. It is therefore vital that you undertake as much research as possible to identify if master franchising is right for you; e.g. can you finance the purchase, and have enough capital to run the operation, and do you have the required skills? You also need to evaluate whether the UK market is right for this franchise. We have an advice section to help you fully understand investing in a master franchise.
