Your Investment

To help you get off to a flying start in Newport, we will invest your franchise fee of £20k back into your business AND invest £10k to contribute to set-up costs that are involved in a new location, meaning you can reach profitability even quicker!

This, along with savings on equipment means that the start-up costs are significantly more affordable than ever before! Instead of £80k + working capital, you now require just £45k + working capital*.

*Major banks can fund up to 50-70% of the cost, dependent upon your financial history.

We provide our franchisees with a comprehensive training course prior to helping find the right premises and staff to ensure that you will have the skills and confidence to become the boss. Find out more about Training & Support.
