FDS launches most comprehensive survey of UK franchise industry

A new survey of the franchise industry is being conducted with the target of providing the most comprehensive statistical information on the size and scope of franchising in the UK. Organised by franchise consultancy Franchise Development Services (FDS), which also publishes of The Franchise Magazine, the National Survey of Franchising will seek to gauge the number of companies franchising in the UK, how many are currently recruiting franchise owners and what their expansion targets are.

Scheduled for release during National Franchise Week (which starts 28th September), invitations to participate will be sent out to 1,400 known franchise companies in the UK in July. The survey will also gather information from companies planning to franchise in the future, individual franchise owners and people who are currently seeking to invest in a franchise.

"Our survey will provide an outstanding overview of the importance of franchising to the UK economy," stated FDS Managing Director Professor Roy Seaman CFE. "It will change the way we see franchising in this country."
