Franchising - reducing your risk!
There’s no avoiding it, setting up your own business is hard work and a franchise is no different.
If you are excited about owning an independent business where you develop all your own ideas and take 100% of the risks for 100% of the reward, franchising is probably not suited to your personality. For those who do go it alone the risks are high; on average in the UK 50% of 'independent' businesses fail in the first year and approximately 65% fail by the end of year three.
While there are no guarantees, franchising provides a much safer platform from which to become your own boss, with 92% of all UK franchisees across all sectors, being profitable after two years of trading in 2013. (2013 Natwest/BFA Franchise Survey)
