At Chapati Man Ltd, we are delighted to have had the opportunity to work with The Franchise Company, a franchise consultancy businesses that helps existing small business move into franchise models, giving them scope for growth and expansion in a format that makes sense for them.
When we decided that we needed to expand our business and bring our service to a wider customer base, we found that a franchise model was a great opportunity for us. With very low rates of failure and the vast majority of franchises reporting a profit, it really made sense for us to look into franchising as an option for growth.
The Franchise Company is one of the longest established franchise consultancies in the country, and their friendly, expert consultants have a wealth of experience helping businesses like us grow and expand their operations, so we knew we were in good hands when it came to franchising our business.
We felt that Mashud Choudhury, our consultant, really understood our business and what was important to us and took the time to properly get to know our staff, operations and business. This meant that when it came to franchising our business, it still felt like the same company and the same brand, just with more opportunities for growth. We were also confident that Mashud Choudhury understood all the unique challenges of the catering industry and made sure we were well placed to combat them as part of a franchise model that was tailored specifically to us.
Mashud was our personal consultant throughout the process, from our very first meeting to the end of the franchising process, so we really built up a relationship and Mashud had an in-depth understanding of what we wanted to do. This also meant that whenever we had any questions, queries or concerns, we knew exactly who to speak to and were able to contact them directly, which made the whole process so easy and stress-free for us.
The Franchise Company helped us assess our options for growth and decide that franchising as the right move for us. They wrote and put together our documentation, including franchise agreements, operations manuals and marketing materials, and to recruit our first franchisees, using their knowledge and experience to start us off on the right foot as a franchised business.
We’re thrilled with the work The Franchise Company have done for us, and feel our business is going from strength to strength as part of a new franchise model.
