Leading Franchise Consultancy Group Puts Its South East Franchise Region Up For Sale

From: Franchise Development Services Ltd
Published: Thu Mar 15 2007

FDS, the UK’s leading franchise consultancy and publishing group with established Regional Franchisees in Southern England, the Midlands and the North West, is seeking a fourth Regional Franchisee to take over existing business in its South East region.

Established in East Anglia in 1981, FDS has earned a strong track record advising and assisting some of the UK’s major franchise brands with their national and international development strategies.

Operating as FDS South East, the Regional Franchisee will provide franchise consultancy to prospective and established franchisors following the FDS methodology, which has been developed and fine-tuned over 25 years.

FDS Founder and Managing Director Roy Seaman said: "The FDS South East Regional Franchise is an opportunity to help companies create a solid infrastructure for a Business Format Franchise and succeed following our well proven method. There are a substantial number of premier franchise brands in the region that we are currently working with, and these will all be transferred to the new franchisee. FDS South East will therefore benefit from an immediate cash flow since FDS have existing advertising and consultancy clients in the region.

"In addition, there are a further 100 companies registered who are considering expanding their business by franchising. The potential for someone to own, operate and develop this business to its full potential is a genuine opportunity and we will be very careful in deciding who would be the best person or organisation to become our Regional Master Franchisee."

The FDS Regional Franchisee will undergo a comprehensive 12-month training programme to ensure they are fully able to assist in every aspect of helping a company to franchise their business. The FDS head office team and other Regional Franchisees will then provide ongoing support.

Roy adds: "Candidates will need to have pragmatic business experience and a successful track record as a sales professional. The initial investment requirement is £75,000, which includes the existing contracts for advertising and consultancy that are currently serviced by the FDS head office. FDS has earned an unparalleled reputation in franchising over a quarter of a century - this is an opportunity to join the most highly respected provider of franchise development and recruitment services in the UK." Roy added: "We are currently piloting a new service to help franchisors to recruit franchisees more cost effectively, and this will also become part of the earnings opportunity for FDS South East."
