The Franchising Centre York Reviews

We have worked with The Franchising Centre for our franchise recruitment for many years now. Their dedicated and professional team have helped assist us with franchise recruitment over the years. In particular, they were flexible and supportive during the lock-down period and that added support has enabled us to keep our recruitment momentum going. Recently, we have produced some incredible results and we certainly value our long-standing partnership with TFC.

Covid-19 has taken us into uncharted waters and, in running MagiKats, we have had to adapt quickly and amend our business to make it work online for both our customers, and the children we teach and also our franchisees. As a franchisor we quickly also recognised the opportunity and interest that might arise in the education sector, as children now had to be tutored at home. We also saw how the interest from parents in boosting their children's missing learning would positively impact our business. So we wanted to keep the promotion and advertising of our franchise going. We were able to have open and honest conversations throughout lockdown with our franchise consultants, The Franchising Centre (TFC), to see where they could advise and support our business. We moved from face to face Information Days to online meetings. We hopefully are now coming out the other side with the first new franchisee training course and plans to open all centres again in August and September. It's great to have franchise consultants who also run their own business and can be understanding and offer constructive advice. We are able to keep the lines of communication open to maintain a good working relationship.

"We have worked successfully with The Franchising Centre since launch and continuously as we develop our franchise business. The team have delivered a full service including website, franchise recruitment and quality advice on franchising matters. Dug, Richard and the team supported us throughout lockdown offering us the flexibility we needed to come out strong even recuiting two franchisees at the height of the pandemic. TFC have been helpful and professional throughout and we look forward to growing our franchise network with their help."

We have worked with The Franchising Centre in the United Kingdom for more than 15 years and consider them the highest intergrity and hardest working group in all of franchising.

Alan has been working alongside us as our franchise consultant for the past 18 months. Prior to meeting him and the rest of the team, we had little knowledge of the industry so it has been hugely reassuring to have his expert guidance throughout the various stages of our franchise development and beyond. As well as being able to tap into Alan's many years of experience in the industry, we have found him very easy and pleasant to work with. He genuinely cares about the success of our business and is always willing to take time to discuss issues and respond to queries. Since our launch 10 months ago, Alan has guided us through the recruitment of 3 franchisees and it is without hesitation that we recommend his services and those of The Franchising Centre.

North London Grammar School - "We were only at the initial stages of our franchising project with The Franchising Centre, when the Covid-19 crisis hit. As for many businesses, we have had to adapt and change how we do things. One thing we have valued above all is the importance of communication and maintaining momentum, so that our projects moving forward can still be achievable, even if timelines may need to be adjusted. Whilst there have been a number of decisions to be made regarding the economic impact on the business, we have valued the flexibility and informed approach taken by Farrah Rose throughout the project, irrespective of unprecedented circumstances, has enabled us to continue with our plans. Working remotely with Farrah Rose and Alan Wilkinson of TFC has provided extensive benefits. In terms of deliverables, we are on track and up to speed with all that we need to do to continue our franchising project. What has been a particularly unexpected benefit is that meeting remotely has provided us with more time with our TFC team. With no time spent on travelling, we are able to benefit from the extra online meeting time. We are also finding that meetings can be easily planned, with not too much time lapse in between each and the frequency of meetings is unlimited. This is providing us with a continued flow of informed and expert guidance during a very unsettled period, whilst as the same time, our costs have significantly reduced due to the savings in time and travel costs. We feel that, as far as we can, ‘business as usual’ during unprecedented times is an important approach to take, to reduce further anxiety within our workforce as well as providing some stability. The effectiveness of working remotely with Farrah and Alan has been highly beneficial to maintaining this approach both financially and strategically and will ensure our projects survive and are ready to deliver when the time is right.

I have worked in collaboration with Steve Felmingham on two major franchise projects over the past 6 years within both the UK and the international education sector. The journey has been hugely enjoyable and the results have proven to be equally successful for both the franchisor and indeed the franchisees. Steve’s knowledge, professionalism and determination have been an invaluable driving force, all the way from start-up to successful expansion, crossing cultural barriers and ensuring the adaptation and smooth transition of a well established US franchise business model to the UK market. Steve steadily nurtures the growth of new businesses, using his broad experience and expertise to ensure sound operational foundations, giving clients the very best chance of success, all in the secure belief that he really genuinely cares.

Steve Felmingham of The Franchising Centre worked with / advised us, when we first looked at franchising The Rock Project. His experience and knowledge is second to none (not to mention his contacts!) Without Steve's help and guidance in the early years, we would never have built the network we have today. Nothing was ever too much trouble and he always seemed to have the answers to any questions we had! When Steve first came along to evaluate the business we had 3 Rock Project schools, 10 years later we have over 100 in the UK, Ireland and Spain. We can't recommend Steve or the Franchising Centre highly enough.

Morley's Chicken - "“It was a great pleasure to work with Farrah Rose on creating a strategy for our international franchising vision. She gathered our requirements and provided a very clear set of deliverables which will give us the best chance of success. I was also impressed by the detail to risks & opportunities which were highlighted. This gave us the opportunity to evaluate and plan accordingly as to where Morley’s would be most successful. The experience, knowledge and character Farrah brings to such a project is priceless and I am very happy we had the opportunity to work with her.”

Museum of Senses - “After being present on the European market for almost two years, with four units in three countries decided to expand the unique Museum concept into International Franchise.    The name of Farrah Rose and The Franchising Centre was the number one choice from several references.    From day one, cooperation with Farrah, Alan and The Franchising Centre team was amazing from a business-wise professional approach to the intangible and tangible segments where Farrah has understood our core business in-depth and provided us with inputs and materials that had exceeded our expectations. Since we are a board of senior managers, our expectations were high, to be clear.   Farrah, we hope that you will read this, we must admit that our main concern was working remotely with you and your team, since we are company based in Croatia, and Farrah is based on the Worldwide airports most of the time, but now when we have finished all steps of developing International Franchise Business and currently are preparing for our first presentation and Franchise expo attendance in Dubai (also lead by Farrah and team) we must admit that such support, involvement, answering to emails, telephone calls within as soon as possible has been amazing and supportive.    We are looking forward to having The Franchising Centre as our partner throughout the next steps of our International Franchise Business development journey. And Farrah as a mentor and a valuable person, that we would like to call a friend.”
