Coming in April 2019 – The Franchise Gateway

LAPS is delighted to present our newest feature – the Franchise Gateway, due to be hitting your screens in April 2019.

Franchising is a well-established business concept where you become a self-employed business owner – but working under the umbrella of well-established brand.  Costa Coffee, McDonalds, Domino’s Pizza,  Shell Fuel Stations – these are all examples of well-known brands which in fact, are often individually owned & operated by local licensees And they’re not alone – a huge number of businesses in the UK and internationally are run using this highly successful business model.

The franchise industry covers just about every industry sector you can think of, including:

  • Financial services
  • Sport, leisure & entertainment
  • Restaurant & retail
  • Healthcare and beauty
  • Business advisory
  • Industrial & domestic cleaning
  • Garden care
  • And lots more!

In this new area of LAPS, we will showcase a selection of franchised businesses that offer you all the training you need to run the business and, once you’re up to speed, will provide all the set up & infrastructure to launch your business. Usually, most franchisors offer ongoing support too – providing new marketing streams, enquiries and best practice product updates plus get-togethers with other co-franchisees in other cities.

A franchise provides the full product & systems training and a structure of how best to market the business. Remember, as a sports professional, you are proven to be more likely to have the right personality traits and attributes that will make you a successful franchise leader – you’re ambitious, tenacious, competitive, driven, focused and great at working with a team. Keep an eye out over the next few months for loads of franchise opportunities – it could be start of something really exciting.

Over the coming months we’ll be working with franchise businesses to present to you a range of interesting opportunities. We’ll be in touch again once we’ve got the first wave online, but if you’d like to know more in the meantime, you could read our article on franchising here
