Healthy profits for Business Doctors

Business Doctors has launched a franchise opportunity fit for bright business professionals. A high-profile, high-margins business, Business Doctors provides unmatched business advisory, mentorship and brokerage services designed to help companies achieve their vision

After four years of successful growth, Business Doctors is keen to expand on a national scale and has launched its much anticipated franchise opportunity. Ideally suited to business-savvy individuals with managerial and/or marketing experience, a Business Doctors franchise is both an exciting investment and career opportunity. Franchise owners will use their experience and comprehensive system of business tools and services to help local small and medium enterprises to identify and achieve their business vision. With 1.7 million VAT registered SMEs in the UK, Business Doctors franchisees will have a large market to work with and, long term, the potential to develop their franchise and its financial returns.

Established in 2004 by Rod Davies and Matthew Levington, Business Doctors is not a consultancy, but a business health improvement service. Like doctors, franchise owners will work with their clients to think about how they operate, help them improve their habits, provide practical advice, find workable strategies and, if necessary, call in other experts. Business Doctors franchisees offer SMEs a range of services from individual health assessments, mentoring and coaching to tailored action plans and advice to help SMEs achieve their full potential.

In just three years Rod and Matthew built up the business to 16 associates and set their expansion plans in motion. Looking to provide a quality local service for SMEs, Rod and Matthew decided to expand through franchising to ensure that local businesses could benefit from Business Doctors with local knowledge. Business Doctors is on the look out for people who possess managerial and/or marketing experience, good communication and people skills and a practical, problem-solving mindset. Experience of building a business and a strong desire to be a leader would also be beneficial.

The franchise package ensures new franchisees are fully equipped to run their own Business Doctors franchise. Full training, an induction to the marketplace, launch and ongoing support are provided, as is a copy of the Operations Manual to refer to for the duration of the trading licence. Other benefits of the package include an online suite of business tools, a complete exhibition kit, marketing materials, a laptop and key applications, website presence and access to proven marketing and sales strategies that are used by existing Business Doctors franchisees.

'In terms of earning potential, a franchisee's earning capacity depends on their personal effort, dedication and determination to succeed and their ability to help SMEs achieve their full potential,' says Rod Davies. 'This is a challenging and fast-moving environment, so a prompt and level-headed response to problems is essential, along with a strong client care mentality.

'We have invested heavily in the development of the Business Doctors brand, image and trading style. Business Doctors franchise owners will be able to trade under a recognised and trusted brand name. As the network develops, you will benefit from strong national and regional promotional activity and a strong brand identity.'
