Introduction to Franchising

The UK is one of the most ideal locations for the franchise model.  As one of the most densely populated countries in Europe it has 15 UK cities with populations of over 250,000.

In 2010, the turnover of the UK franchise market rose two percent to a value of £12.65 billion, showing that is an area for growth.

There are currently approximately 800 franchisors in the UK offering franchise opportunities.

There are currently 320,000 franchisees in the UK, 92% of which say they are currently profitable.

The British Franchise Association (BFA) is the voluntary self regulating governing body for franchising in the UK. (www.bfa.org) although somewhere less than a quarter of UK franchisors are currently members of the BFA.
