The Franchising Process

The process for becoming a Master Franchisee starts immediately on receipt of your initial enquiry. To guide you through the process which includes several meetings and the submission of a business plan, we've provided some more details below.


Submit an online enquiry, email us or call us on +44 (0) 20 8687 6000. We’ll ask you to fill in our initial enquiry form and send it back to us.


If you’re happy to proceed we’ll arrange a Conference or Skype call with you so that we can tell you more about the brand you are interested in and you can tell us about your plans for the future.


We ask all seriously interested prospective partners to sign our Confidentiality Agreement which means that you won’t disclose any sensitive business information to competitors. Once the agreement is signed we will send you an Evaluation Pack of teaching and learning materials.


Further to a mutually successful call, our next step is to arrange to meet with you, so that we can give you a full presentation about the particular brand you are interested in and find out a bit more about you and your experience. Our New Business Manager will arrange to meet you at a mutually convenient time and place.


We will arrange to meet you again to go through the Master Franchise opportunity in more detail and usually we try to combine this with a visit to one of our centres so you can see first hand how we operate and meet a Master Franchisee.


At this stage in our discussions we will ask you to prepare a business plan and submit it to us.


At this stage in the process, you will meet with our CEO at a mutually convenient location to discuss the contract in detail.


We can either meet with you to sign the contract face to face or we can exchange contracts via post. One the contract is signed you will be invoiced for 40% of the Master Franchise. On receipt of payment we will initiate proceedings to get your initial training booked in, and send you a complete set of  management manuals.
