New Launches set to take off
As many consultants will tell you, investing in a new launch franchise has multiple advantages, not least the extra attention that accompanies being one of the original franchise owners for a business. Here The Franchise Magazine identifies three new franchises that we believe are set to do big things in the industry over the next twelve months.
Ten LiveSector: Recruitment One of the UK’s leading independent recruitment providers, Ten Live, has been thriving for many years and now the franchise model is expected to follow suit. The business is a recruitment specialist, matching businesses in need of specialised staff, in the Logistics, Energy and Telecoms sector with highly qualified staff. The business prides itself on being able to pick the best person for the best position through its three-step management process, which franchise owners will be able to take advantage of. One of the key benefits of investing in this business is the stunning and interactive website that drives traffic towards the business. The franchise package is comprehensive to say the least. A one-week training programme at head office combined with pre-launch discovery days, full launch and business plans enables investors to get off to a flying start within the framework of the business. Furthermore, the business provides investors with access to a client base and an exclusive territory to drum up business from day one. This really is a business that allows franchise owners to hit the ground running.
Mould DoctorSector: Property Maintenance/Environmental A growing business in an industry very much ‘of our times’, Mould Doctor is a brand new franchise with a very bright future. The business specialises in the complete eradication of mould in commercial and domestic properties and has no equal in terms of service offering. The earning potential with this fully scalable business is huge thanks to the enormous and generally untapped market – there are nearly 30 million homes in Britain and many homeowners are only recently waking up to the dangers of domestic mould thanks to a surge in national press coverage.
MagicmanSector: Property Care When Mark Henderson left the Royal Navy in May 1993, he knew that he wanted to be his own boss and so set up Magicman – now one of the UK’s leading hard surface repair and restoration companies and a multi-million pound business. Now, after more than 20 years in business, Mark is giving investors the chance to share in his success through franchising. He explains: “Magicman is doing well but I know that we’re a long way from fulfilling our potential. Franchising is the ideal way to do this. We have developed an excellent service that customers love and, once trained, I know that with our help franchisees will be perfectly placed to take advantage of local market opportunities.”
