I went to Southampton for the training. The training was minimal at best. Just a few days of being shown how to open a rat box. At first the phone calls from the franchisor are everyday then they start to get further apart.The business launch was not professional. news of contracts come out, but never materialise.call centre is paid for by the franchisees. you very rarely get any calls from it, but still pay a communication fee which includes a main website and your own local website; plus Facebook. The franchisor takes control of it all, points everything at his interests/websites his phone numbers and not your business. only business you get is from your own website, which he doesn’t like and keeps trying to get everyone to depend on his site.If something does come through on your agreed area, he is known for saying he’ll do it through his office on your area. Franchisees have done work for him and not been paid. When you try to run your own business as it’s sold to you, it’s basically took off you. conference calls every Monday morning which are basically a waste of time, franchisees to scared to question anything. This is because of the franchisor’s actions against people who do question him. It then turns into threats of being in breach of contract and being sued for compensation. They come up with doing sales blitzes in different franchisee’s areas but these usually get cancelled.The franchisor spends more time concentrating on his charity bike rides, Masonic events and being on holiday and endless petty little wars with people he has fell out with, than he does the business. The overall impression is that he makes money from franchisees signing up, then they fail, he demands compensation along the lines of you have to pay for the remaining time on your contract, and then sells it again. anything that is presented to the franchisees is usually at a cost to the franchisee to make more money off them rather than pest control.

I decided last year to join My Window Cleaner as a Franchisee and I am so glad that I did because I have had full support throughout my journey from all of the staff that help run the business, and I have built up a large clientele already. Although it has been hard work, it has all been worth it and I look forward to continuing to build my business in the next coming years.

I had the misfortune to have a Bargain Booze franchise the worst mistake of my life. Working 365 days of the year including Christmas Day and New Years day minimum 14 hours per day all for nothing. I paid in over a 100k cash and ended up in the Bankrupt Court for just a 5k bill that would have been paid in 4 days. If you want to ruin your and your family's life loose all your money and health I can recommend a Bargain Booze franchise.

The excitement of the birthday parties and sharing experiments with a large group of children is great. I really enjoy visiting schools and working with them to build on the science topics pupils have been learning about in the classroom. Plus I love the challenge of creating workshops to answer the different questions and interests of my home educated groups.

Getting a Fun Science franchise is the best thing I ever did. I'd recommend them wholeheartedly whether you are looking for a party or a new business!!!”

I feel confident that with the proven Right at Home business model, the full support of the head office team behind me and an experienced manager by my side, my ambitions to grow this business into something great can and will be fulfilled.

I find being a franchisee immensely rewarding. Not only do I love working with my team, I run a business that has a positive impact on the community, treating older people with dignity and respect and helping them to enjoy their independence in the comfort of their own home.

We were looking for a long time for a franchise business to invest in. After hours, weeks, months and years of scouring the internet it was by chance we came across The Wheel Specialist, after having some work carried out by another franchise. We were so impressed with the finished product we had a brief chat about the business with the franchisee, who was full of praise for the franchise.

My first impression, gained from meeting franchisees, franchise support staff and the head office team, was very positive. I was confident that the potential for profit and growth was strong in the city, which has a good representation of MBE’s target markets including the university, tourists throughout the year, local businesses and an affluent local population.

I didn’t want to return to my career as a buyer, the hours were long with lots of travelling. I was on Working Mums website and came across The Creation Station… it just jumped out at me! The business has huge scope, positive values and the team are really friendly. Over the past six years I’ve grown my business and the support has been excellent. I’m so pleased I made the step to take control of my working life. Instead of juggling childcare over the holidays I now choose my hours and enjoy having time with my girls. It’s time you can’t get back and for me it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made

After I attended the open day, I knew that ChipsAway, which is owned by Franchise Brands plc, would be a great company to invest into, and far more professional than other franchises I’d looked at. I wanted to join a franchise rather than starting on my own because of the support. When I met the ChipsAway team, I knew that it was the right decision. They provide you with IMI accredited technical support and training from beginner level, general business support for those who have never been self-employed, and leads from day one to give you a head start.

I was involved in an industry which wasn’t very exciting. Even though I’d become a regional director, I didn’t have any real sense of job satisfaction. And it had been fun to start off with, travelling the UK and into Europe. But I wasn’t having any positive or lasting impact on anyone. I had always wanted to run my own business. By the time I reached directorship, I was ready to do my own thing. I knew I didn’t have the fortitude to take the risk alone. I spoke with a guy used to work with me in car rentals – he’d opened a Right at Home franchise a few years previously. As he talked so passionately about his business, I could see he was incredibly satisfied in a way I wasn’t. I knew franchising with Right at Home was the push I needed to take a leap of faith; using their support as security.

I used to work in the travel industry and my husband in banking but we wanted to run our own business and were particularly interested in working in the care industry. Driving Miss Daisy provides us with the opportunity to make a difference in the community. Our clients become friends and often we work with families too, all of which makes our working day rewarding and enjoyable!
