As well as our online resources, we were also very instrumental in creating and delivering learning courses and seminar programmes on "How to Buy a Franchise" for the British Franchise Association and UK Government Agencies.

We are more than just a franchise website; whichfranchise is packed with EXPERT advice from credible franchise EXPERTS. Our step by step guide equips you with everything you need to know about buying a franchise in the UK; from franchise finance to franchise legal to how to choose the right franchise for you, whichfranchise covers it all. We help you to understand all areas of franchising before looking at which franchises to buy.

Our franchise directory allows you to read more about each opportunity including stories on some of their successful franchisees; you can find out what it is really like to become a franchisee from those who know best.

If you are interested in any of the opportunities and want to know more, simply fill in the form at the bottom of the page and the franchisor will send you a copy of their prospectus. With franchise opportunities covering a wide range of industries, types and franchise investment, there's' something for everyone.

High investment franchising is for those looking for a more substantial opportunity to invest into. This section covers master franchising and multi-unit franchising. Many of these opportunities will be new to the UK, though successful in their own country, whilst others are established in the UK but looking for experienced investors to drive the brand forward.
