Primarily, franchisees have the security of knowing that they have a business that can run all year round because it can be housed indoors and outdoors.

There is also no need to buy stock, as you get a complete training package, you have instant sales opportunities from the parents of the children that attend, and so a quick potential sales network to utilise.
Accessibility for the Go-Kart Party franchise is also good because the initial investment is so low at £10,000 and you don’t need an office or to buy lots of stock, you just need to be able to transport the equipment to the party location.

Once you get going, your regional and national website is already set up for you to run, you have support from the national call centre and don’t have to worry about losing a huge percentage of your revenue because there is a fixed management and royalty fee from the start.
