Suited to your investment level... London House
"The support throughout has been great and there is a strong relationship between franchisor and franchisee." Graham Chandler, Tonbridge & Canterbury franchisee
GRAHAM'S STORY: 'I ran a business with a partner for over 20 years but a few years ago I realised that I wanted to do something by myself. The work I was doing required a long commute and I wanted to work in an environment where I could control and manage my own time and work to my own plan. I knew franchising would be the best route into business and through my research I found London House. The opportunity instantly appealed - it was in an area of work that was interesting and fulfilled my criteria perfectly. I was impressed with London House's code of conduct and I knew that I would receive excellent support.
'I found the training course to be informative and refreshing. They make sure you know everything you need to know about the business and are right up to date with teaching you about current legislation. London House makes sure that all the franchisees are up to scratch and focus on the areas you may have less knowledge about - it was very adaptable. I launched the business in March this year with the help of London House's marketing expert. Through advertising and local networking, I've found the perfect amount of business that I can manage. 'The support throughout has been great and there is a strong relationship between franchisor and franchisee. Even the network of franchisees can be used for advice in running the business. No one is in competition and everyone is happy to help each other out if need be.
I currently run the business from home but after two years my plan is to move into commercial premises and take on my first members of staff. As long as you are willing to put the work in London House provides a good opportunity with plenty of potential.'
