The profit potential
A number of our franchisees have invoiced over £5m since inception, with well-established franchisees turning over £1m a year.
Over the years we have found many of our franchisees expanding their business and some opting to buy their own premises as part of long term financial planning.
The franchise package
We have recently adjusted our offering, meaning we will not only invest our franchise fee of £20k into your business, we will also invest an extra £10k! A massive £30k saving on our previous offering.
