Well it's been a great journey for all of us at The Franchise Company. We've worked with businesses throughout the UK and abroad and it still amazes me at what can be franchised. Over the last 25 years we have worked with nearly every business sector going, and the fact that so many businesses still look to franchising as a method of expansion is a testament to the the staying power of franchising. It's now a £15 billion industry, but when I started working in franchising in the late 70's I never imagined it would play such an important part of the UK and European ecomomy. We've also witnessed the growth of social franchising, helping the not for profit and charity sector expand its good works.
We've helped hundreds of clients franchise and have recruited hundreds of franchisees over the years. Each new client gains from our experience and our valuable knowledge. It's that quality that many businesses are seeking and its that quality we give to to each and every client. We've been there, done that and in some cases got the t-shirt! That's why so many of our clients (in the UK and abroad) go on to be incredibly successful.
Both Ken Rostron and I are looking forward to working with businesses over the coming years and helping them franchise and expand their operations. We've enjoyed the journey so far and we hope if you are franchising, its with us. Remember, we've learned a thing or two over the years. So here's to another 25 years of franchising with The Franchise Company!
