Why should I consider running my own business?
There are many good reasons:
- You get to be your own boss
- It allows you to harness your creativity
- You can set your own work/life balance
- It allows you to challenge yourself
- You can take real pride in your ownership and achievements
Growing numbers of people are taking the plunge and becoming their own boss. Figures from the Office of National Statistics show that the number of self-employed people rose to a record high of more than 4.6 million in the September-November period of 2015.
Why should I consider a franchise?
Taking the franchise route is becoming increasingly popular:
- Because of the support you get from day one
- The opportunity it gives you to build a significant, profitable local business
- A franchise is proven to be far more likely to succeed, than a non-franchise start-up
- You get brand name recognition and a tried and tested business model
- Franchising is about being in business for yourself – but not by yourself
- The statistics are also impressive; this is a growing, vibrant route to business ownership.
The franchise sector is fast growing. It continues to outperform the overall economy, now contributing £15.1billion in turnover and supporting 621,000 jobs. Figures also show a record 97% of franchisees report profitability and more than 90% are satisfied or very satisfied with their franchisor. Take John, who is one of our successful clients. Three years after contacting us he is Managing Director of his own business in the East Midlands, employs a 40-strong staff, has a turnover approaching £750,000 and plans to expand into other parts of the UK. Mr Franchise’s open and honest matchmaking service points you in the right direction to successful business ownership – if it’s the right direction for you.

How does your service work?
Our tried and trusted five-stage plan looks to identify your skillsets and interests and how these might be harnessed to create your perfect business opportunity.

How much will this all cost me?
There is a nominal, upfront fee of £500. This allows you to have the individual benefit of our professional consultants and access to all the expert research, support, advice and help they deliver. However, there is also a way to get your fee back – your consultant will explain how this works when you first meet. And using Mr Franchise to help you find the business that suits you best can actually save you time as well as money. And you have peace of mind and confidence in the knowledge that you have a professional, proven and experienced team at your side on your journey to business ownership.
