Multi-sector HR firm, Breedon Consulting, has announced the launch of its franchise packages in the UK, as it reaches year on year growth.
With one franchise currently operating in Northamptonshire, interest and uptake in Breedon Consulting’s franchise model has since gathered pace, motivating the launch of the firm’s new franchise packages, targeting HR professionals and individuals looking to set up on their own.
Research suggests that 64% of the UK’s workforce want to start a business with the primary reasons of being their own boss and to improve their earnings, according to SME Loans*. Becoming a franchisee gives individuals the benefit of being their own boss without the risk of starting their own independent business from scratch.
Located in the heart of Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire, Breedon Consulting has seen a record success of retaining long term clients alongside welcoming new clients via referrals, with a 30% increase during the first year of the pandemic.
The franchise package will include a five-year renewable franchise agreement, a comprehensive operational manual and intranet, a geographic territory of over 11,000 SME limited company businesses alongside smaller sole trader businesses and academic institutions.
Other incentives involve full business administration and set up support, integrated CRM, finance and business planning systems, full ongoing IT support, holiday cover, coaching and drop-in sessions to work with franchisees on an ongoing basis.
On the business’s franchise launch, managing director of Breedon Consulting, Nicki Robson, said: “We are thrilled to announce the launch of our franchise packages and look forward to seeing the fantastic reputation we have built locally mirrored nationwide.
“Expanding the franchise network gives Breedon Consulting the ability to grow geographically, allowing a nationwide team of HR specialists to confidently build their own business with a fantastic brand, providing exceptional professional support to SMEs.”
Wendy Slater, Northants Branch franchisee said: “I was originally a client of Breedon Consulting and they provided much needed support for our business, which was tailored to our specific needs. It was such a refreshingly commercial form of HR support that when they said they wanted to open more branches nationwide I jumped at the chance to join them!
“As well as providing excellent training, you get access to all their systems which are intuitive and integrate with each other. There is a full bank of templates and collateral which means there is little you have to create yourself, just tailor for your client. The most important element is the breadth of offer from Breedon which covers all of the HR support a client could need. We also have access to the Head Office team, if you need any help or support.”
The consultancy looks to set up a franchise per quarter over the next three years. To find out more contact Patrick Burge of Lime Licensing Group: firstname.lastname@example.org.
