If you have a passion for sport and making a positive impact on the lives of children, Premier has the franchise for you
Premier is the UK’s number one sport and physical activity provider and engages with millions of children and adults through sports, performing arts and health and wellbeing programmes.
How does a premier franchise work?
As someone looking to invest in a franchise, Premier is sure one of the questions you want answered is: How will I generate the income to ensure my franchise business is successful? With a minimum investment from £14,950 (plus VAT), it’s important to know how you’ll make the investment back.
Working with schools and the local community, Premier offers curricular, extracurricular and holiday camp activities through its Sports and Arts programmes to children from the age of four to 12.
The introduction of Premier Wellbeing’s Play, Fun and Fit activities provides franchisees with a platform to target previously untapped markets. Play-Trition targets nurseries and children centres, while Fit-Trition provides convenient fitness classes and nutritional advice for parents and teachers.
As a franchisee, you’ll be working to build and develop relationships with schools and other community centres within your territory to secure business for the franchise. In the early stages, you may be delivering the activities yourself, but as you grow you will start to manage and deploy a team of activity professionals who specialise in delivering Premier programmes.
After knowing of Premier through activities run in her local community, mother of two Raakhee knew exactly where to start when considering her franchise options.
Since joining in 2011, she has developed her franchise and generated over £170,000 in the last year - a £22,000 increase on the previous year. Raakhee explains: “Being able to work from home, having the opportunity of working around my sons and my husband, I feel very lucky to have that option.
“I would recommend Premier to people looking to go into business. You don’t have the hassle of starting a new business and the product is ready to sell, so that’s half the battle. Premier has extremely high standards, which the company prides itself on, and that’s how it should be, especially when you’re working with children.
“The professionalism of Premier, drive of their staff and, ultimately, the support you receive to run a business has been fantastic. I love what I’m doing now with my career and this is the first time I have felt this way. Even though I put in long hours, it does not feel like work, but more of a passion.”
Do i need a background in sports?
You don’t need to be an ex-professional footballer to be a successful Premier franchise owner. The company’s franchisees come from various backgrounds, including coaching, teaching, IT and the military.
Through the introduction of Arts and Wellbeing, Premier has evolved to be far more than a sport provider. Collaborating with over 15 per cent of English schools, it provides new opportunities for children who may be disengaged with sport to get active and healthy.
As long as you’re passionate, able to develop relationships and have the drive and determination required to be a successful franchisee, Premier wants to hear from you.
