The UK franchise industry

A franchise can be a great opportunity to run your own business. It can be a much quicker start up than a traditional business. You get the benefit of the franchisor’s market share, brand awareness, advertising, business management and know how – plus ongoing support from the franchisor.

The banks may be more willing to lend you money to fund your business if it is an established franchise and because the business is already established the risks of failure are likely to be reduced.

UK franchise opportunities: A sector showing record growth

The franchising industry is one synonymous with support and community, demonstrated in the 2018 bfa NatWest Franchise Survey, showing a 95% franchisee satisfaction rate.

With 48,600 franchised units in the UK up 10% since the last set of stats in 2015, and 60% turning over more than £250,000, people are seeing the benefits of owning a franchise unit, reflected in the fact that multi-unit ownership continues to rise (36%, up from 29% in 2015.

These impressive figures are the reason that banks tend to look upon franchising investments favourably, willing to lend up to 70% of the initial investment.
