Medics On the Move make it a baker's dozen

Bristol based home search and property services company Medics on the Move has increased its national base to 13 franchisees with new franchises opening in Cardiff, South Birmingham, South Bristol & North Somerset and Bedfordshire.

Medics on the Move is the brainchild of Bristol businesswoman Carole Stubbs and her business partner Vickie Knighton, who plan to have a 40-strong franchise network nationwide within the next few years.

The company finds property for medics and other busy professionals, many of whom move long distances with their work. Says Carole: 'For many people, finding a home when you already have a full-time job can be seen as one job too many. Medics on the Move franchisees have the experience and knowledge to find these busy people the right home - whether to rent or buy - with the minimum of hassle.'

Franchising is a good way to start your own business and, according to Vickie Knighton, Medics on the Move's ability to demonstrate a proven track record through its existing franchisees allows it to pick the very best people:

'Potential franchisees find it reassuring to talk to like-minded individuals who have been through the process and are now running their own successful franchises.'
