About Us

The Franchise Company is one of the UK’s leading specialist franchise consultancy firms.

Established in 1991, we help businesses of all shapes and sizes look at franchising as a strategic expansion option, in the UK and internationally. We also help businesses that are already franchised become better franchisors and maximise revenue from their franchise operations by improving network performance.

We like to think we’re different – we think outside of the box somewhat – and we’re brutally honest in what we tell our clients. We refuse to slavishly follow conventional received wisdom and advise our clients based on a combination of best franchising practice and commercial expedience.

If you're just entering the franchise arena we'll look at franchising alongside all of your other strategic options in light of your overall objectives. Franchising is not an end in itself, it a means to an end, and if we don’t believe franchising is the best way for you to achieve your ‘ends’, we’ll tell you so.
