Why franchise in the South West England
Pam Bader, CEO of MOLLY MAID and Chairperson of the South West talks to us about franchising in the South West.
"The South West provides an excellent opportunity for anyone looking to start up a franchise. The South West rode out the recession with much less trouble than most UK regions and has remained a vibrant, busy and buoyant area. The implied annual turnover in the South West for franchising is 1.4billion; an increase in 17% over 5 years.
Post-recession, the South West has become a hub for new tech start-ups, so much so that the triangle between Bristol, Swindon and Gloucester has been referred to as 'Silicon Gorge'!
It's an exciting place to be and all this energy and entrepreneurism makes the South West a great place for opening up a franchise, there's a wealth of support for new businesses in the region and it's exciting to see so many businesses thriving already."
