Franchise Consultants in Edinburgh

Our team of franchise consultants serves Edinburgh and Scotland. We cover the entire UK, and our consultants are flexible to travel as needed, so location is never an issue.

With our franchise consultants in Edinburgh, you can receive assistance in franchising your business by:

Getting Started with Franchising

Before diving into franchising your business, we recommend conducting a feasibility study to determine its franchisability. Our Business Assessment Report and Franchise Blueprint Strategy Plan go beyond assessing franchisability and answer important questions such as:

  • Models: What potential routes can be taken?
  • Financial Illustrations: What would the franchisee and franchisor experience?
  • Pros and Cons: What are the advantages and disadvantages of franchising?
  • Requirements: What is needed to successfully franchise?
  • Strategy Plan: Assisting in creating a potential plan for franchising.

We begin with an in-depth meeting to understand your business and perform a critical assessment of your operations, methodology, and business structure. Based on this, we provide recommendations for preparing your existing business model, methods, and documentation for franchising.

Franchise Development

During this stage, we establish all the necessary infrastructure to franchise your business successfully. This includes tasks such as creating corporate and brand identities, protecting intellectual property, working with franchise lawyers, developing operational manuals, organising training programs, setting up administrative systems, projecting financial outcomes, designing franchise business brochures, and addressing other crucial aspects.

Our professional manual writing team can handle the complete writing process or provide you with a template to contribute content yourself, which can be more budget-friendly.

Franchise Recruitment

Whether you need guidance in determining the ideal franchisee profile, marketing the franchise opportunity, or managing leads, our experienced team excels in all stages of recruitment. Our FranMatch program caters to both prospective and established franchisors, allowing you to entrust us with lead handling and free up your time for other important business aspects.

Franchise Agreements

Franchise agreements play a vital role in the franchising business model. They safeguard your brand, ensure consistency across franchise locations, and protect intellectual property. As a partner of Ashtons Legal, we offer reliable franchise agreement services, ensuring your legal needs are met with utmost professionalism.

Online Masterclasses

We regularly offer ‘how to franchise’ masterclasses, which serve as an ideal opportunity for newcomers or those in the early stages of franchising research. These classes provide valuable insights and guidance on what to expect and how to proceed. Best of all, they are free of charge—all you need to do is register your interest.

For Established Franchisors

Our franchise consultants in Edinburgh can provide assistance with:

Franchise Health Checks

As a well-established franchisor, you may encounter obstacles that hinder the growth of your franchise. These challenges could stem from franchisee motivation or recruitment difficulties. Our franchise health check assesses your entire franchise and offers recommendations for improvement. These suggestions may range from minor adjustments to a complete overhaul, all aimed at revitalising your franchise and driving its success.

Improving Performance & Managing the Network

If you are experiencing difficulties in managing your franchise network, our highly experienced consultant, Karl Sandall, is available to provide help and advice. This can include establishing comprehensive training plans, troubleshooting issues, setting clear Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), fostering a collaborative culture, monitoring performance, and aiding in recruitment.
