Coronavirus Update from Ashtons Franchise Consulting

Posted 19/03/2020 : By: Debbie Dennis

Like all responsible businesses, Ashtons Franchise Consulting is currently focusing on ensuring we protect our clients, our contacts and our staff over the coming weeks and months. At the same time, we are seeking to ensure that we can continue to provide the full range of consultancy services that our clients need. What does this mean in practical terms?


We are trying to keep face-to-face meetings to a minimum and use whatever technology is most convenient for all. All of our consultants are available via telephone, Skype, WhatsApp or FaceTime - so they are still able to deliver our range of franchise consultancy for both existing and potential clients.

Office Closure

At present our head office is open – however, if in the coming weeks we are advised to close, all of our staff are able to work remotely. Our main phone line 01603 703254 will continue to take calls.

Should we have to work remotely, of course we will be adhering to the usual strict rules around confidentiality and cybersecurity that would apply in any other situation.

In the meantime, very best wishes to you, your staff and your families as we all adapt to doing things differently in response to the current circumstances.
