A Franchise business is a proven business format, which can be replicated by investors also known as franchisees. The Franchisor will grant the franchisee the use of the business name, logo, the right to market and distribute the franchisor's products or services, in a given location or territory for a fixed period of time (usually five years, although this may vary from sector to sector), the full details of the franchise offering will be in the franchise agreement. Please note that it is essential that when reviewing the franchise agreement, the agreement is reviewed by a franchise solicitor. In most instances the franchise agreement can be renewed for a further term. Certain franchise brands will allow the franchisee to become a multi-unit owner or an area developer depending on the sector of business and availability.

Franchise Business is a proven business format

To invest in a franchise, the franchisee must first pay an initial fee for the privileges to use the business, training, and the equipment required by that particular franchise model. Once the business starts trading, the franchisee will usually pay the franchisor an ongoing royalty fee, either on a weekly, monthly or quarterly basis. This payment is usually calculated as a percentage of the franchise businesses gross turn over. After the contract has been signed, the franchisee will open a replica of the franchise business, under the guidance of the franchisor. The franchisee will not have as much influence over the business as he or she would have over their own business, however, investing in a franchise business will require you to follow the proven business format. Examples of proven business formats or franchise businesses include McDonalds, KFC, Pizza Hut and Subway to name a few. There are further opportunities with new franchise business brands, where the initial invest may be less than a more established franchise brand, and potentially offer greater profits.

Franchise Business offer systems & support

Typically, the franchisor will command that the business model stay the same; for example, the franchisor will require the franchisee to use the uniforms, business systems, and signs or logos particular to the business itself. The franchisee should remember that they are not just buying the right to sell the franchisor's product or services, but buying the right to use the successful and tested business systems.

The franchisee will also usually have to use the same or similar pricing in order to keep the advertising streamlined. Aside from using the business systems determined by the franchisor, the franchisee will otherwise remain an independent owner of the franchise business. There will be training given by the franchisor to the franchisee, ensuring that the franchisee fully understands the business concept and systems of the franchise brand. Some franchisors will have a team of area managers, specific trainers and support staff to assist the franchisee, adding value to their franchise brand. As with any investment you make, you should do your due diligence thoroughly before you make any final decisions to purchase.

Saurabh Sharma

I am very pleased with the services Jess Bains of Franchise Sales & Resales provided during the resale of my SUBWAY store in (Leicester). Jess was very professional and very well mannered individual in the franchise resales industry. In the beginning, I was stressed and I struggled to find potential buyer for my Subway store. From the moment Jess was recommended to me and got involved in the resale of my franchise, my level of stress had gone completely, as Jess handled everything on behalf of me. His knowledge and experience was brilliant, after quiet a few hurdles we managed to sell my franchise store, in a reasonable time. I would definitely recommend Jess to everyone out there looking to resell his or her franchise.

Kunal Patel

As a successful multi-sight petrol retail operator I wanted to get involved in the franchise industry. I came across Subway Resales advertised by Franchise Sales & Resales, after discussions with Jess Bains. Jess knew exactly what I was looking to do and what my investment criteria was and with his help, advice and guidance, I am now a Subway multi-unit franchisee (which is in addition to my existing portfolio of businesses). Jess and I continue to work closely together adding more franchise businesses to my portfolio and his support and guidance is highly valued.

Sushil Mistry

I would like to thank Jess for all the support he has provided in assisting in the resale of my franchise store during a difficult time in my life, I had so much going on, that I didn’t have enough time to deal with everything. Jess was there throughout the whole time and it was a huge shame for me that I wasn't introduced to him sooner. Jess is a supportive and a strong professional individual who was a savior during a very tough time for me. His communication levels are very good and his commitment towards his work shows in so many ways. If you need someone you can trust and rely on, Jess is the best person to approach due to the experience he has in franchise sales and resales. Jess has very strong links and there wasn’t any question I had that he couldn't answer. To sum up, if you are looking to go into franchising for a new or existing franchise, do approach Jess, I can’t find the words to thank him enough.

Mohammed Vhora

I would like to share with you this testimonial to say how much I have appreciated the support I have received from Mr Jess Bains of Franchise Sales and Resales. From start to finish; Jess has been paramount to the whole process and actively engaged with me to get things done professionally and amicably. Jess was always available for me every step of the way and was always happy to help and get things sorted. I was able to have confidence in Jess from day one and most importantly felt he was totally transparent in his advice and mentoring. Jess is a good judge of character and will always tell franchisees what he feels about them and weather they will succeed as franchisees. I see Jess as an advocate for Subway as he has always good things to say about the brand and how the brand will grow in the best interest of all of us. Jess helped me with my journey into franchising, I have now added another food franchise to my portfolio and am actively looking to add more to my portfolio.

Vaishalli Patel

My journey in franchising started fifteen years ago, I started off as a single Subway unit franchisee and grew into a multi unit store franchisee, with a team of sixty staff and seven stores. After achieving most of my goals within the Subway franchise brand and having many priceless experiences with in the franchise, I decided to sell my stores. Jess was recommend to us by a friend. From our initially meeting and discussions with Jess, everything he said was absolutely spot on. The resale process can be very roller coaster and we needed someone impartial, experienced and someone that understood franchising and resales. Whilst we experienced some challenges, and even when some deals collapsed, Jess made sure we were back on track and ensured a successfully completion. We highly recommend Jess and his services.

Anil Lakhi

Franchise buyer, Bargain Booze

I bought a retail franchise with a turnover of just under £2 million. Jess Bains was the franchise resale consultant who guided me through the resale process. The resale took much longer than we had anticipated; however, with Jess's experience and guidance, we managed to conclude the deal. Without him, I think there was a strong possibility that the resale would have collapsed. I would recommend Jess to anyone thinking of buying and selling a franchise. I am now the proud owner of a multi-million pound franchise business."

Ajaz Saber

Franchise buyer, Cash Converters

Jess Baines Franchise Resales Consultant has been most helpful and supportive in helping me find a franchise business that suited me. I approached Jess with an interest in a Cash Converters franchise and Jess quickly identified my needs and approached his contacts at the franchise. He provided information about me and based on their experience of working with Jess, they informed him of an opportunity that was not available on the open market at that time. Jess made all the arrangements to meet the seller and he later arranged for me to meet the management team at Cash Converters. Jess was able to help guide everyone through the whole buying/selling process – his experience was vital at times, acting as a liaison between buyer, seller and Cash Converters. Jess was always professional, courteous and knowledgeable, but above all that he was a friend as well. I have to say that without Jess the purchase might not have gone through. So, thank you Jess for all your help and hard work."

John & Janice

Franchise sellers

When we originally bought our franchise we had intended to move closer to our business, unfortunately due to personal reasons this was no longer possible. So we decided to sell. Jess Bains was our Franchise Resale Consultant. From our very first meeting with Jess, right the way through to completion, Jess's experience was invaluable, Jess's advice, guidance and knowledge was the difference from us completing to the resale collapsing. We highly recommend Jess Bains Franchise Resales Consultant."

John Mann


Jess Bains was my franchise resales consultant and I just wanted to thank him for his hard work and help in selling my business. The service was excellent and professional at all times. It was amazing that he sold my business in under 3 months and I have recommended him to one of my colleagues. When I think back to our first meeting I realise all the points that he made about the process and his expertise were 100% accurate. I particularly appreciate his guidance and advice at the negotiation stage. On a personal note I would also like to thank him for his help during a difficult personal time too. Thanks for everything."
