FDS North

Franchising Consultant

Since establishing FDS North in 1999, Tony Urwin has helped many Scottish and Northern businesses to realise their franchising ambitions, and to become the strong brands they are today.

Here's what some of our customers have to say about us:

"We were put in touch with FDS North Franchise Consultant Tony Urwin back in 2007 and we cannot praise him enough! We have a very comfortable working relationship with Tony. Not only is he extremely professional and knowledgeable, he and his team at FDS North always deliver on time and have given us some fantastic ideas on how we can improve the business and generate lead flow."

Sandra Venables, Founder of Well Polished

"We really enjoyed working with our Franchise Consultant, Tony Urwin. He made the entire process of developing and franchising our business relaxed yet professional. Three years on, Tony continues to offer excellent support from behind the scenes. As our business knowledge has grown we don't need to call upon him as often as we used to, however it's nice to know that someone is only a phone call away!"

Tracy Townend, Co-Founder of Puddle Ducks

"From the day we launched the business five years ago, we knew we wanted to franchise the company, but it represented a significant investment in time and money so we wanted to make sure we got everything right. Tony Urwin and the team at FDS helped us do that."

Richard Wood, Franchise Director of Voucher Packs

An Affiliate of the British Franchise Association, Tony regularly speaks on franchising issues at regional events, and writes a regular column in The Franchise Magazine.
