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.
Sector: Food and Beverages
Initial investment: £177,000 + VAT
As certain as the sky is blue and the sea is, well, blue – Britons will always love fish and chips. Churchill’s fish and chips then is a business with near-mandatory demand. The classy, London-themed fish and chips franchise is preparing to open its flagship store in Stansted, Essex, having already opened stores across the country. What really makes this an exciting new launch is that it comes as a concept from the Lipscombe family who are the family behind the country’s largest existing chain of fish and chips shops.In fact the Lipscombe family have been in the industry for 90 years and so are extremely well placed to give franchise owners the best possible advice to be successful. Franchise owners receive site development support, high level potential earnings, comprehensive training and support and much more besides.
Sector: Property Maintenance/Environmental
Initial investment: £34,000
Not too often does a business operation come around that has clear potential to become ‘the next big thing’ in a mandatory market – Green Square environmental energy solutions, however, does. The business was originally set up just one year ago in Raynes Park, London. Selling and fitting innovative renewable energy solutions – many of which are patented – has proved so lucrative for the company that it has begun franchising already. The business forecasts a year-one profit of more than £70,000 as demand for its products fall into line with societal and governmental schemes to increase the amount of domestically produced, green energy over the next few years. Full training, bespoke software, and the chance to operate in a rapidly growing market await investors with the vision to invest in a really classy business with little competition.
Initial investment: £18,000
Since 2012, Screen Rescue has grown into one of the most successful dedicated windscreen repair companies in the East of England, thriving in a recession proof industry that continues to grow. Thanks to its unique technology capabilities, Screen Rescue can repair most windscreen damages other companies simply can’t touch. A large number of Screen Rescue’s clients have multi-sites across the country and so expansion by way of franchising is the natural way for the company to service them. Territories launched across the South-East have led, by demand, to the release of all UK areas, which should result in National coverage within five years.
