A busy summer ahead

You will be pleased to know that interest in the Premier Sport franchise opportunity continues with impressive numbers of prospects making contact with us to find out more about the opportunity. 

Over the last two months we have been holding discovery days across the country including Manchester, Birmingham and London.  You may be aware that the discovery day is where prospects are invited along to find out more about the proposition, to allow them to make an informed decision whether Premier Sport is right for them.  It also and most importantly gives us the opportunity whether they are right for us.  I normally keep the numbers to 2- 4 attendees so that there is an opportunity for everyone to ask questions and get maximum value from the event.


Don't forget the referral scheme

Don’t forget there is a £1500 payment awaiting you for simply referring someone to become a Premier Sport franchisee?

Franchising Today

Franchising has since flourished into an industry which now has nearly 1,000 brands in a multitude of different sectors. Long-gone are the days when it revolved around cars and catering, nowadays its eclectic mix of businesses includes everything from hairdressing to photography, pet care to children's sport coaching.

Franchising has never been in better health than it is now. Both short and long-term growth trends are very strong in the sector, including prior to and since the economic downturn in 2008.


You can become a member of the bfa

One of the biggest recent changes in franchising occurred during 2012, with the advent of Franchisee Membership to the bfa. Franchisees, for the first time, have the opportunity for direct representation on the board of the bfa, and therefore are able to contribute to the future evolution and governance of their industry. It’s the first membership scheme of its kind for any franchising association in the world, and ensures all stakeholders of ethical franchising can continue to move the UK industry forwards as it grows further in size, stature and importance to the economy.

And finally...

As you are aware Premier Sport is a full member of the British Franchise Association (bfa). In light of this I thought it would be interesting to provide a brief history of the bfa.

In 1997 eight of the largest franchise brands in the UK decided they needed to do something to differentiate their own ethical business practices from those companies with bad ones, and as a result the British Franchise Association (bfa) was formed.

The founding member companies of the bfa were ServiceMaster, Dyno-Rod, Holiday Inns UK, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Wimpy International, Ziebart GB, Prontaprint and Budget Rent a Car.

With no previous set standards in the UK, the industry thus created its own regulatory body and accredited a company’s suitability for membership on strict criteria related to operational practices, business procedures, franchise agreement terms and the support offered to franchisees.

The size and stature of these founding members and the bfa’s early work on business ethics restored credibility to the business model, and with the economic boom of the 1980s and 1990s many new brands came into UK franchising and remain there today.
