The benefits of taking on a franchise business

The prospect of success as a franchise business are far greater than they are for the entrepreneur who chooses to go it alone.

Setting up and running your own business can be costly, time consuming and complicated – especially when creating your own products, services and intellectual property, at the same time as trying to do everything else. Essentially, franchising enables you to enjoy the benefits of an established business with the expertise and support usually only available in larger companies.

Associated time scale

6-9 weeks from the first meeting to contract completion

It’s important that we stick to this timetable because there is often more than one expression of interest in a franchise area. Payment of a reservation fee will reserve your franchise area and secure you a 28 day period to exclusively review the opportunity. [NB: Should you decide not to proceed during this period, the fee is fully refundable, less an admin charge to cover costs].

Franchise funding support

For individuals who are interested in a franchise business but need help with funds: Merivium will introduce you to funding from traditional bank or non-bank sources – experts who specialise in providing working capital or personal-funding options. We’ll ensure that you’re provided with business and cash-flow planning models, to assess your requirements.

How Merivium can support you

We will provide you with short, medium or longer-term support, to match your needs and budget.

Mervium will introduce you to opportunities that match your skills and experience , so that you’re not taking a ‘leap into the dark’. All of the franchisors we work with actively encourage candidates to participate in a due diligence process, allowing them to get a better understanding of the business before making an investment decision.

We will provide franchise-business and cash-flow forecasting models to enable you to plan your business before committing funds. This will enable you explore ‘what if’ scenarios based on different sales forecasts.
