2. In-Toto Kitchens

Established over 35 years ago, in-toto Kitchens provides franchisees with a wealth of valuable retail and business experience.

Husband and wife team Bryan and Caroline Newton (pictured) are joint owners of in-toto Leamington Spa. They bought the business from their friends, Richard and Diane Gee.

“We already knew in-toto Leamington Spa had a great reputation within the community, which we were keen to take on, and with the support of the franchise and in-toto community we continue to grow,” Caroline says.

“Everyone we spoke to had positive feedback about the company, especially our daughter, Jodie, who works for in-toto head office. Her experience definitely influenced our decision to join the franchise.” Many of in-toto’s studios are family-owned - something that appealed to Bryan and Caroline.

Caroline adds: “We’re sure the strong family connection we and other in-toto studios have is something that attracts customers to us.

“Bryan and I have been working together for 30 years - we run a joint business, but we also identify with family life, which in the industry of designing and installing kitchens in family homes allows us to understand our customers’ requirements.”

4. Dream doors

Before joining kitchen facelift retailer Dream Doors and launching his franchise in Swansea, Lavine Jones (pictured) held several lucrative positions for high street brands, working his way up to become an operations director for O2.

But while he thrived on responsibility and appreciated the financial rewards on offer, he never felt fulfilled in his career. That changed when he decided to open his own Dream Doors franchise.

“I could instantly see the value in the Dream Doors service, as well as the potential prospects for a franchisee,” Lavine says. “The fact customers could save up to 40 per cent is a big deal.

“As soon as I met Troy Tappenden, Dream Doors’ founder and managing director, I knew this was the company I wanted to invest in. His passion for the brand is infectious.

“There were no opportunities in Cardiff when I approached Dream Doors. The nearest available territory was in Swansea. But I believed so much in this business that I was prepared to travel and that belief has paid off.

“The benefits of being able to work with my wife and see more of my kids than I ever did when I was employed far outweigh the hassles of the commute.

“My advice to anyone starting out in a franchise is to be patient and prepared to put a huge amount of time and effort in. You’ll need to be humble at times too and willing to change the way you work. Do that and you could have a fun, rewarding and lucrative business of your own.”

What you need to know

Investment level:

£30,000

What you get:

full training; initial and ongoing support; launch marketing materials; design software; vehicle livery; stationery; uniforms; operations manual.

5. GutterPRO

House gutters need clearing, otherwise leaves, nests and other debris block them. And that’s what GutterPRO does - clears domestic gutters, keeping rainwater flowing the way it’s meant to.

Long carbon fibre poles and powerful vacuums get the job done quickly and safely, while smart uniforms, professional marketing and a booking app give the brand a competitive edge.

GutterPRO franchisees generate profit from their first month of trading and first year earnings can be over £20,000. In year five, this figure could rise to over £50,000.

The company’s ‘£5,000, 3 month Turnover Guarantee’ provides peace of mind for new franchisees. Simply put, if a new franchisee does not generate £5,000 over three months, GutterPRO will ‘top them up’.

The company has a strong franchise pedigree, with one of its founders having served as a British Franchise Association board member.

What you need to know

Investment level:

£9,850

What you get:

Full training; initial and ongoing support; marketing assistance; uniforms.

8. Wilkins Chimney Sweep

Wilkins Chimney Sweep began trading in 1895. Today it operates as a low cost, van-based franchise catering for the large number of people who require chimney sweeping on a regular basis.

Potential franchisees should consider the fact there are always annual repeat customers, as everyone is required to keep their chimneys clean in order for them to be safe. There’s no ‘hard sell’ necessary, with jobs driven primarily through referral and promotion.

In addition, the business’ pay-on-theday model means it’s almost entirely debt free.

Company owners Peter and Louise Harris are cited by many franchisees as being well liked and trusted and Wilkins Chimney Sweep - the only British Franchise Association accredited chimney sweep operation - makes sure all sweeps are police checked.

Louise says: “Chimney sweeping may not be the most glamorous work, but it’s good, honest graft that’s perfect for someone who enjoys meeting members of the public, is both practical and business minded and doesn’t mind getting a bit grubby.”

What you need to know

Investment level:

£5,500

What you get

: full practical and office-based training; postcode territory of approximately 100,000 individuals; operations manual; professional accreditation; full set of equipment; branded uniform; marketing package, including PR.

9. Shuttercraft

With 46 per cent year on year growth in 2016, it’s no wonder Shuttercraft is one of the UK’s leading suppliers of premium quality wooden window shutters.

The franchise network takes advantage of a market that’s still in its early stages of growth. The fact shutters make such a dramatic impact both inside and outside of properties has helped some Shuttercraft franchisees generate up to 50 per cent of their work through repeat business or referrals.

Shuttercraft has invested heavily in new branding, including websites, marketing, customer relationship management systems, expert personnel and industry-leading training. This investment was made so that the network can grow faster and stronger, quicker.

A management franchise, franchisees employ fitters to install made to measure shutters. The business offers high potential profits, a healthy cash flow and low overheads, which means the earning potential is significant compared to the capital investment.

What you need to know

Investment level:

£25,000.

What you get:

induction and ongoing training; full support; protected territory; market research and product development; marketing assistance; website; stationery; leaflets.
