Franchise Brand Management

The franchise sector is thriving with a record number of franchised operations in the UK today, equating to 44,200 individual franchisee businesses, employing 621,000 people and contributing around £15.1 billion to the UK’s GDP.*

*British Franchise Association (bfa)/Natwest Franchise Survey January 2016

In 2010 it was reported that 250,000 people were actively looking into owning their own franchise business. Unsuprising when you consider that in the retail sector alone only 5-8% of franchised outlets fail in the first two years of business opposed to 54% which are independently owned.

To the business owner, franchising presents one of the simplest ways of expanding a business, but it does present its own unique set of challenges, not experienced by conventional ownership. The fact that a franchised brand is made up of a network of individually owned small businesses raises the challenge of brand control and consistency of product across a growing network. And each of these businesses will have some level of autonomy, depending on the structure of the franchise agreement.
