Business Doctors launches a new concept in B2B franchising

Business Doctors is offering business service professionals the chance to enhance their services with an innovative bolt-on franchise opportunity.

Small and medium-sized businesses are now refocused on growth, and looking for a way forward. For many, that means looking for specialist advice and guidance from Business Doctors. For professional services and business-to-business companies, it means expanding their services with a bolt-on Business Doctors franchise. Either way, Business Doctors means business growth.

Established by Rod Davies and Matthew Levington - who between them have led and helped revitalise more than 200 companies - Business Doctors provides smaller businesses with a range of programmes designed to help them develop effective strategic plans, improve their efficiency and much more.

Business Doctors is now seeking experienced, business professionals who can take advantage of the brand to complement their existing business-to-business services and those who wish to start a new business venture with the backing of an established name and support network. Extensively field-tested since 2004,

Business Doctors has proved to be a highly successful enterprise, with an ever-expanding portfolio of clients.

Working in conjunction with a Regional and National Franchise Manager, a Business Doctors' franchise owner will be an enthusiastic self-starter who enjoys working with people and have the determination to make a proven system work.

Prospective franchise buyers will be required to invest £19,950 plus VAT and in return will receive a full residential training course at the company's head office in Merseyside, support, operations manuals, five programme leader guides and extensive marketing tools. An estimated £10,000 (plus VAT where applicable) of start-up and working capital will also be required.

Armed with these training tools and support, Business Doctors' franchise owners are expected to exceed the expectations of their clients using a determination and dedication to ensure the proven model works for them.

As well as providing its franchise owners with the knowledge, Business Doctors work closely with the additions to its network by helping them to select the right location for their territory and thereby maximise their success.

"We're aiming at recruiting a new local franchise owner a month - with a similar number of area franchise owners - as we expand our network," explains Rod.

"We know there is enough demand on the market to have a total of 200 local Business Doctors franchise owners across the UK."
