Our franchisees often don't have any sales experience, but they do have determination, a will to win, and plenty of enthusiasm to develop a great business. We have 40 years' experience of turning franchisees who have never sold before into first-class sales people.
Your contribution to the funding of this very well established and profitable business is £26,500, however, there are different routes into the business depending on what capital you have available. We will then assist you in raising a business over-draft facility with your preferred choice of bank.
