Looking for supported franchising? Ashtons does not have a one size fits all approach to consulting with potential franchisors. We tailor our approach.
What does this mean?
Some clients have a limited budget. Others have the knowhow, or a wish to be actively involved in the franchise project, because they have the time to do so.
If this is you, then you will find a warm welcome from us. We have always worked in this way – but now we have given it a title!
We Can Help You with Supported Franchising
Franchise Your Business the Ashtons Way
We have a team of consultants with an array of experience in different sectors. We work by placing you with a consultant according to relevant experience in your industry, as opposed to those geographically closer. All of our consultants will travel, however we find that a lot of the franchise development work can be completed remotely. As you have probably gathered by now, we are completely flexible and prefer to work according to client preference.
When you enquire to franchise your business we always start with an initial call, either on the phone or via Zoom, at no cost. We will ask a lot of questions about your business. If we do not feel that it is ready to franchise we will give honest feedback. We will also give you some advice on how to make changes so that perhaps it can be ready. If we think that it could be franchised we will recommend the steps to take next. Often the first step that we advise is the Franchise Assessment. This is an in-depth study of your business and will lay the foundations for the next stage.
The next stage is the full franchise development programme. This is really where our ‘supported franchising’ comes into play. We have three main packages available, all according to budget and how much, or little you would want to do yourself. BUT – these are not carved in stone and we can tailor them to suit you.
Franchising a business takes a lot of work, but we are with you for the journey – or as much of it as you want us to be!
