Big Picture – A Deep Dive Examination of Franchise Brands PLC
Franchise Brands PLC Snapshot
The business of Franchise Brands plc was founded in September 2008 by Stephen Hemsley (Executive Chairman) and Nigel Wray (Non-Executive Director), the principal shareholders, who have substantial experience in franchising.
Their vision was to create a group of complementary franchise businesses that could benefit from sharing the same central support services, thus allowing the management of these businesses to focus on expanding their networks, and supporting their franchisees to grow their businesses.
The founders’ vision also incorporated their strongly held belief that a franchise business can only be reliably and successfully expanded if the unit level economics are viable at the franchisee level and franchisees are able to build profitable businesses with the support of the franchisor.
The Group’s strategy is to focus on the development of franchise businesses that primarily provide services to individuals and businesses, building on our core skills of marketing, franchise recruitment and franchise support. The execution of the strategy will be achieved through organic growth and acquisition.
In October 2016, Franchise Brands completed its first acquisition since the IPO, of Barking Mad, in October 2016. This broadened the Group’s portfolio of B2C businesses with a market leading brand which has an attractive model for franchisees, a strong management team and a similar customer base to the Group’s existing brands.
