Headshot of Business Doctors franchisee Graham RobsonHere is one of many examples...Graham Robson, Business Doctor for Tyne Tees and former recruitment industry managing director, was looking for a franchise that enabled him to pass on what he had learned during 38 years in business.

The Rewards

Operating a Business Doctors franchise offers a working day like no other - with huge variety and job satisfaction.

Chris Simpson headshot, a business doctors franchsiee Chris Simpson, Business Doctor for Ashford, Kent, and former IT industry CEO says: "I love doing what I do and helping business owners realise their goals"

Business Doctor’s Sussex Coast Franchisee, Sandra Murphy said “I was looking for a better work-life balance.  Business Doctors has given me that, along with support from their vast network.”  

Part of a Thriving Market

In 2004, Business Doctors recognised a unique and untapped niche in the market: practical, down-to-earth, and holistic support for small and medium sized businesses.

The need for our services is self-evident. The Management Consultancies Association (MCA) identified three of the largest and fastest-growing markets within management consulting to be operational improvement, financial management and project management.

It’s no coincidence that this magic trio is at the heart of the Business Doctors offer. There are 5.7 million SME's in the UK, and no other national network is set up to target this kind of support to them.

The Many Benefits of Joining Us

Business Doctors is a tried-and-test system with fifteen years’ history behind it. With established territories in the UK and overseas, franchisees can be confident they are buying into a method with longevity and great potential.

Headshot of Graham L Morgan in a shirt and suit jacket Cardiff franchisee and former Chamber of Commerce director Graham L Morgan, says: “I was very interested in the ‘tools’ offered by the Business Doctors kit bag and with a background in supporting SMEs, I could see just how relevant and saleable they were. The fact that Business Doctors is already established across key parts of the UK also played a big part in my decision to buy a franchise”.

A recognised name across the industry, Business Doctors has won and been shortlisted for a multitude of awards, including continuous improvement winner and finalist in the overall best franchise category of the Best Franchise Awards 2014, a finalist in four categories at the Franchise Marketing Awards 2015, Business & Industry Today’s company of the year 2014 and HSBC B2B Franchisee of The Year Finalist 2016.

Business Doctors partner Richard Tidswell Another major benefit of joining Business Doctors is that you are never alone. With over 40 franchisees in the UK network, Business Doctors frequently call upon each other’s expertise and many choose to work collaboratively.

We share best practice and our experiences of overcoming particular challenges,” says Richard Tidswell, franchisee for Avon and Somerset, who has a background in retailing, strategy and asset planning within a private utilities company. “I really appreciate the ongoing support that comes from both head office and the rest of the network,” he adds.
