CONGRATULATIONS to all the Premier Wellbeing licensees...
You have already added an asset to your business by being a first mover and taking full advantage of our Wellbeing offering!
The first opportunity to register your interest in becoming a Wellbeing licensee was way back at NTE15, over 16 months ago.
Since then, as our national landscape starts to shift towards health, we have seen 50% of our network take full advantage of this fantastic product. Wellbeing adds value to existing customers and provides a platform for franchisees to access previously untargeted customers such as parents and nurseries... This has all been available at no upfront or ongoing cost!
As business owners, you are only too aware that every offer must come to an end, so from December 31st 2017 there will be a minimum license fee investment of £5,000, bringing Wellbeing in line with our other licenses - but at this point in time this is still ‘A COMMISSION ONLY MODEL’.
Time Associates have had a record breaking year in terms of appointments booked across network - and their stats confirm what we were predicting... Since January 2017, they have booked 78% more Wellbeing appointments than Sport, showcasing the DEMAND for the health and wellbeing offering.
The Department of Health also recently announced that the ringfenced Sport Premium fund would DOUBLE from September 2017, meaning schools could access up to £16,000 dependent upon their size.
The doubling of this pot means Headteachers will have more at their disposal than ever before. Recent Government strategy documentation details an increased shift towards health and wellbeing. In fact, in their cross departmental report ‘sporting figures’, they have highlighted they are working to redefine what success looks like in sport by concentrating on five key outcomes: Physical wellbeing, mental wellbeing, individual development, social and community development and economic. So actual guidance for schools around health & wellbeing is imminent.
Please be aware:
There is absolutely no guarantee that anyone who registers for a Wellbeing license from this point will be approved before December 31st. There are already franchisees in the application process and with that process consisting of due diligence and Director interviews, it isn’t a straightforward process, as we must ensure that applicants have the structure and process in place to successfully operate a multi-brand, multi-revenue business as part of both their growth and defensive strategy.
