Top 5 franchise ideas for the New Year

The beginning of a New Year is often a time for us to take stock of our lives and consider what we want to achieve over the coming months. We’re also entering a new decade, which can act as inspiration for setting some longer-term career and work goals.

Many of us are looking for a new challenge this year, whether it be a new job or the opportunity to start a business. If becoming your own boss sounds tempting, you might like to consider UK franchise opportunities. Buying a franchise presents you with a proven business idea and the foundations on which to build your own company.

Here are our top five franchise ideas for the New Year:

1. The Teepover Club

The Teepover Club® styles luxury teepee sleepovers, which they like to call “Teepovers®”, and luxe picnic and pamper parties in a range of themes for parties to remember for years to come.

There is no experience necessary with this role. You will receive full training on every aspect of running a successful teepee sleepover franchise – but passion, creativity and a keen eye for detail and design will certainly help you soar, along with strong organisational skills to help you handle the multiple bookings each week.

2. eDivert

eDivert is a home-based franchise opportunity offering business to business services. These include administrative activity, telephone answering, bookkeeping and diary management. eDivert also offers marketing services including direct email, social media activity and telemarketing.

Unlike some franchise opportunities, the franchisee doesn’t buy a geographical area. Instead, you’re supported to focus on the services you enjoy, with the ability to work UK-wide.

The business operates as a network, where each independent franchisee can take on and outsource work with other members of the eDivert team. This gives you both control of your work life balance and the ability to grow your business more quickly.

3. The Seasons Art Class

The Seasons Art Class runs adult art classes across the UK and is continuing to expand through new area licences. This is an ideal part time business franchise that can be run from home.

Franchisees don’t need any art experience and will find that demand is high – classes are booked up to six months in advance. An established business and marketing system make it easy to get this franchising idea up and running.

Each art class is run by a qualified tutor and you run the business in a managerial capacity. Training and support is provided every step of the way.

4. Betty Bloom Dance

Betty Bloom Dance is changing the way dance is taught to children! As an owner of your own Betty Bloom Dance Academy, you will have the opportunity to grow a fantastic organization, but with the added flexibility to start with small easy pieces teaching earlier years initially, with bolt-on packages as your confidence and skill levels grow.

To run this franchise you need to LOVE dance, LOVE children and believe in a strong ethos of inclusion, generosity, kindness and a genuine desire to make the world a better place!

5. The Holiday Franchise Company

The business was created after recognising a need to welcome and support people into the industry who didn’t have experience, but had amazing skill sets and a passion for travel. They are the first travel franchise to get accreditation by both The British Franchise Association and The Approved Franchise Association.

As part of Hays Travel Independence Group (Hays IG) they have access to 500+ suppliers, so can tailor your business to your preferred area of specialism, whether that be type of holiday or destination.
