Creating an effective franchise starts with having a good knowledge base and understanding of how you want to run your business.
There are plenty of training schemes out there to help give employees of a company the business training and the skills they need to progress, however in a franchise model, a lot of the knowledge isn’t always applicable, and some important skills may easily be missed.

Franchise training is a brilliant solution for a wide variety of different franchised organisations, and can help solve many issues for franchise networks.
Franchise training can be positive for both franchisors and franchisees. By improving their skills, franchisors can be better placed to support their franchise network and give franchisees the insight to improve their individual businesses. Training for franchisees gives them more confidence in their business skills and can help them to improve operations, strategies and profits in their own franchise units. Training and boosting the skills within the franchise network is good for both franchisors and franchisees, and can help your team maximise profits across the organisation.
We offer our franchise training to established franchises to help give their presence, team and skills a boost and help move them to the next stage in the franchise development and growth process.
We can also help new franchisors and franchisees to get their business off the ground as soon and as successfully as possible, giving them a strong starting point for their franchised business. We can assist with training during the initial pilot process for franchisees, to ensure the pilot franchisees have the relevant skills to ensure the success of the network. In this phase of the franchise development journey, a strong, highly skilled network that has the confidence and independence to suggest positive changes and contribute to the overall business is vital to creating success as the network expands.
Whether the franchise network is a smaller, national or a part of a large, multinational business, franchise training can breathe new life into all parts of the business.
We can help give individual franchisors support and training to implement new schemes, processes and standards in the business, as well as helping to upskill franchisees, giving them more independence and confidence in their business acumen and a deeper understanding of the strengths and limitations of the franchise model. We can also give teams in larger organisations who work with the franchise network the training they need to understand how best to manage a network in their franchise model.
Training can also help successful franchisees take their individual franchise units to the next level, increasing profits and commerciality for them and the franchisor. The boost of confidence training can give your franchisees can help them increase their profits and maximise potential for both of you. For franchisees who may be struggling, training can help get them back on the right track and prevent them needing assistance or relief in the future. This can help ensure that performance across the network is elevated and that all of your franchisees are self-sufficient and working effectively.

We see many different franchises across industries looking to improve their performance, whether it’s to save a struggling unit or to take your best-performing team to the next level.
We create bespoke training plans for all of our clients to help them get the most out of the service we offer. Before we offer your team training, we’ll carry out an analysis of the franchise network, to better understand your needs and areas for improvement within the business. We’ll take note of specific areas of opportunity and weakness to tailor our services perfectly to you and the needs of the business and the team. We can then adapt our training materials and programmes to fit with this and give your team the best possible outcomes and value from the service.
The Franchise Company can offer a massive variety of training courses, sessions and materials based on the needs of your organisation. We’re flexible in how we work to help your business make the most of our materials. The majority of our training programmes can be delivered in an intensive two hour taster course, a more relaxed half day or in-depth full day of delivery, depending on a variety of factors, including the number of participants and how in-depth and interactive the course content needs to be.
