Changes to the face of Franaccounts

The United Kingdom's leading specialist in the provision of accounting services to the franchise industry - Franaccounts is reshaping its messaging within the market to avoid the confusion of being considered a franchise.

Alex King, Group Marketing Manager 'We have found over the years people often confuse us with a franchise, therefore we felt it was important to review how we are presented to the market through our corporate identity and overall branding strategy. We are not a franchise, we are accountants for franchisees and franchisors and wish to be perceived as such.'

King continues 'After completing in-house market research which included speaking with opinion leaders within the industry, we believe that our brand is one of the strongest out there with regards to being leading service providers to the franchise industry, and we were reluctant to make any major amendments to the core components'.

The major changes consist of replacement of the tag line to 'bfa affiliated accountants'. 'Being affiliate members of the UK's foremost franchise association, we felt it was important to portray this in our messaging.' Says King.

Over the coming months Franaccounts will be updating their website and corporate and promotional literature to reflect the changes in their messaging.
