Franchisee Story
Prioritising family led Kirsten to Raring2go!

When Kirsten Hackman was made redundant in 2012, she took a life-style decision to step away from the corporate world and prioritise her family. She was fed up missing out on spending time with her kids as working long hours and knew she needed to find a new career that allowed her flexible working. “Ultimately, I wanted to be able to be a mum, whilst also taking on a challenge that would keep me and my brain active.” In 2012, Kirsten bought Raring2go! Esher & Weybridge, followed by Kingston & Merton in 2017.

Interview with Bill Sunner co-founders of Wingers

My background is in sandwich shops.  We’d started out as a premium brand but found our £1 sandwiches and baguets flew off the shelves best and quickly expanded to ten sites, some of which were franchised and some wholly owned.  Ultimately, price rises meant it was difficult to sustain the £1 model, so from our production facility we moved into wholesale, supplying schools, colleges and football clubs. However, back in 2012, I read an article that confirmed 1.2 million chicken wings were sold over one weekend during the Superbowl.   It was a lightbulb moment.  

Franchisor Interview
Interview with Founder of UK Auto Pro, Mark Saunders

There isn’t anything Mark Saunders doesn’t know about window tinting, having been a mobile technician for over 10 years himself.  He set up UK Auto Pro in 2019.  Initially employing technicians, he struggled to reach the levels of service he wanted to provide customers with due to lack of commitment from the technicians. He realised he needed individuals who would be invested in delivering results and always putting the customer first, which led him to go down the franchise route.  He employed his first franchisee a year later, and now has 5 covering central England.  Mark is looking to expand his business across the UK and looking for likeminded individuals to join UK Auto Pro. Marks tells his story…

whichfranchise... over 25 years of delivering franchising results

whichfranchise has worked with some of the world's leading and most knowledgeable experts in ethical franchising to provide prospective franchisees with the best advice in helping them decide whether franchising is right for them.

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.

We also have existing franchises for sale in our franchise resale section; these are, in most cases, established businesses that the owners are looking to sell on. This may be because they are retiring, relocating, ill health or simple wish to pursue other opportunities.

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.

Experts are on hand to answer any questions you have about buying or selling a franchise, as well as franchising a business. If you are a franchisor and keen to expand in the UK, we can send you information for advertising on whichfranchise. We look forward to helping you.
