Homecare & Property Maintenance, Retail
Franchisees offer top-end, fully managed bathroom design and installation using CAD (Computer Aided Design) software, with access to a high quality range of bathroom fittings and tiles, fitted by London Bath Co approved installers.
The company has extensive experience in installing and designing bespoke bathrooms across the UK. Customers trust The London Bath Co to transform dull spaces into beautiful, tranquil bathrooms.
The franchise opportunity is the vision of CEO and founder, Steven Baker, who created a highly profitable bathroom supply and installation business and then decided to expand the business further using the franchising business model.
The franchise fee is £40,000, but you can become a franchisee of The London Bath Co with as little as £20,000, as the company has strong relationships with specialist lenders that, after credit checks, can work with franchisees to achieve investment needs.
The franchisee will be designing, supplying and managing the installation of new bathrooms and will have a bathroom showroom where clients can view ranges.
Successful franchisees can expect a full return on their investment within three years (after drawing a management salary from the business).
The company has franchise opportunities available throughout the UK.
In addition, The London Bath Co may have a company operated premises available for resale in your area, enabling you to get up and running in a short space of time.
British homeowners’ interest in installing and refurbishing their bathrooms to a high specification shows no signs of slowing and The London Bath Co has the benefit of decades of experience in the building sector and a pool of vetted installers.
The company is proud of the reputation it has established over the years. Franchisees get the backing of a well respected company, giving them the confidence to undertake multiple projects at the same time, while being able to make their mark with their own showroom and business.
The success of The London Bath Co is predominantly due to its fully managed installation process. Each installation is overseen by franchisees who stay in close contact with their clients throughout the entire development.
Utilising a team of high quality, experienced installers exclusively available to franchisees alleviates much of the risk of poor workmanship, meaning more chance of word of mouth referrals too.
The London Bath Co has its head office in Covent Garden, central London. The company’s main showroom is in Finchley Road, north London.
A superior training programme has been designed to equip franchisees with the skills to survey, measure and design a bathroom.
Franchisees are booked in to visit bathroom installations currently in progress and will learn how to survey, plan and create something with the wow factor or something that fits perfectly with the clients’ brief. They are taught how to achieve a good finish and what to check for when inspecting their own installations.
Training then begins in CAD software, so that franchisees can produce their own stunning 3D images of bathrooms. Having this particular skill helps franchisees engage with their clients on a design level, which builds confidence when it come to choosing someone to take them through the process.
After training is completed, franchisees will have their own personalised website and look forward to the grand opening of their high street boutique showroom.
Franchisees are guided through the entire franchising process by the dedicated support team at The London Bath Co headquarters, including identifying, securing and fitting out suitable premises to create a boutique showroom.
The finished showroom will showcase completed bathrooms that highlight The London Bathroom Co’s high quality finish and demonstrate the range of fixtures and fittings available.
The franchise fee of £40,000 is a one-off fee and secures a trading area for a period of 10 years. There is no additional fee to extend the franchise.
Running any successful business requires good management and sales skills and of course a desire to succeed. Franchisees come from a wide variety of backgrounds with differing skills and qualities.
While no experience is necessary, The London Bath Co looks for franchisees who can demonstrate good attention to detail, have effective management and people skills and, importantly, the ability to sell.
Recent research into the UK bathroom market reveals predictions that it will grow by 12 per cent over the next four years, with house building volumes set to stabilise despite the economic uncertainty (source: AMA Research).

The UK’s love affair with ‘hotel style’ shows no sign of abating and with CAD one of the skills held by a London Bath Co franchisee, getting homeowners excited about the prospect of a brand new bathroom is something they often experience on a daily basis.
