Franchise Consultants in Norwich

Our team of franchise consultants covers Norwich and the surrounding area including Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire.  As a company we cover the entire UK, our consultants travel, so location is not a problem.

Getting you Started in Franchising

Our Norwich-based franchise consultants are equipped to help you expand your business through franchising. However, before embarking on this journey, we recommend conducting a feasibility study to determine whether your business is suitable for franchising. Our Business Assessment Report and Franchise Blueprint Strategy Plan goes beyond just evaluating franchisability, it answers questions about potential routes, financial projections for both the franchisee and franchisor, the pros and cons, and requirements. We’ll also help you create a strategy plan to move forward.

We begin the process with an initial meeting to understand your business thoroughly and conduct a critical assessment of your operations, methodology, and business model. Based on our evaluation, we’ll make recommendations on the necessary preparations for franchising, including modifying existing business models, methods, and documentation.

Stage 2 – The Development Stage

Our development stage is focused on building the infrastructure required to franchise your business successfully. This includes creating corporate and brand identities, protecting intellectual property, liaising with franchise lawyers, drafting operational manuals, organising training programs, establishing administrative systems, projecting financial outcomes, crafting franchise business brochures, and addressing any other crucial aspects. Our team of professional manual writers can either write complete versions or provide templates to help you develop your manuals yourself.

Stage 3 – Recruitment

The final piece of the puzzle is recruiting franchisees. We can assist with franchise recruitment by guiding you in determining the ideal franchisee profile, marketing the franchise opportunity, and handling leads. Our FranMatch program is suitable for both prospective and established franchisors.

Are you an established franchisor?

We can help established franchisors with franchise health checks, which examines the entire franchise and provide recommendations for improvements to boost growth. We can also provide assistance in improving performance, managing the network, and expanding internationally.

Franchise Health Checks

As an established franchisor, your franchise may be facing hurdles that are obstructing its growth. These difficulties may be attributed to franchisee motivation or recruitment issues. Our franchise health check evaluates your entire franchise system and provides actionable recommendations for improvements. These suggestions may include minor adjustments or a complete overhaul, all aimed at reinvigorating your franchise and driving its success.

Managing the Network

If you’re facing challenges in managing your network, our expert consultant Karl Sandall is available to offer guidance and assistance. He can assist you with developing comprehensive training plans, troubleshooting, establishing clear KPIs, fostering a collaborative culture, monitoring performance, and recruitment.

Going International

Over the years, we have helped many UK brands to expand into the global market and facilitated the expansion of international brands into the UK market. If you’re planning to take your business overseas, our team has the necessary expertise to guide and support you throughout the entire process.
