When choosing which Franchise Company to work with it very important that you don’t waste thousands of pounds on unnecessary costs. It is also very important that you can trust the Franchise Company and their Franchise Materials and Legal Contracts. You also need to feel that you can work well with them knowing that they are always available to help and support you.
Below are a number of testimonials from clients who can ‘vouch’ for our incredible value for money, the work we do and the robustness of our Franchise Legal Agreement.
As part of your due diligence we will also give you the opportunity to speak to several clients who have used our services.
“I franchised my business with Mark and it was the best business decision I made. In only one year I moved from being a sole trader to a franchisor with eight franchisees (now got over 40). I am very proud of what we have achieved and it wouldn’t have been possible without Mark. Initially I was looking for someone to help draw up the legal contracts at a reasonable price. Mark provided that for sure, but so much more! What I didn’t expect was just how hands on he would be.
Mark offered a LOT of support and advice; practical ideas on how to run certain aspects of the franchise, legal advice when signing up new franchisees and he even let me bend his ear when I was getting frustrated and needed a pep talk! I highly recommend his excellent professional and value-for-money service.”
- Angela Sterling, Lingotot
“Mark worked with us to franchise the business. We have sold over thirty yellow page franchise areas and ten Licenses with further sales imminent. We have had 1500+ enquiries. Before we started working with them we had worked unsuccessfully with a different franchise consulting firm who were charging us considerable higher fees too. Their fees are very good value for money and we got a very quick return on our initial investment too.
Mark also did some general business development work within the business and helped us generate record quarter results. The Franchise Agreement also protected us from a third party claim which we were able to pass back onto the franchisee as stipulated in the Agreement”
- Simeon Briggs, Car Leasing
“Mark has been a very good find, after having silly quotes of £6000 just to find out if my business was able to be franchised. Mark was on hand during the whole process and in our second month we had sold our first two franchises (now got over 40). I found the whole process quick and simple and nearly everything was completed by Mark & Julie. I would highly recommend Mark if you’re looking to franchise your business.”
- Carole Davy, PetStay
“Mark has helped me achieve the National Coverage I was looking for through franchising. We are doing very well and the amount of money I have made in front and backend fees is brilliant. I would recommend Mark and the team to anyone. Their help and support in unbelievable. I also relied on the Franchise Agreement to terminate a franchisee and received a big settlement too.”
- Nick Ashworth, I Buy Caravans
“I have now got 20 franchisees on board all doing well. The service and support from Mark has been first class and very professional. If you are thinking of franchising your business then these are the people you should use to help you. I was also able to rely on the Franchise Agreement to protect my business when a franchisee had to leave due to ill health.”
- Craig Parry, PTC Sports
“We worked with Mark on creating a Franchise business from scratch and we were extremely happy with the support Mark provided. We received guidance at every step and a suite of valuable documents (including the Franchise Agreement and Side Letters) for the business and some great sales tools for hiring the right Franchisees. We’ve been running for over a year (signing up 25 Franchisees to date) now and Mark still provides excellent support as required with our Franchise queries and any issues.”
- Mark Davies, Premier Lifestyle
“After chatting to other franchisors he had worked with (all gave glowing reports!) I decided to use Mark to set my franchise business up. I have to say Mark is efficient, professional and experienced. I currently have five franchisees with a sixth expected soon. Communication has been first class throughout the process, I highly recommend Mark for anyone looking to franchise their business.”
- Sue Westwood-Ruttledge, Horse Photography
“Mark and his team have taken our small business from local to National in the space of a few years and we have not looked back. The ongoing professionalism and expertise they have provided has been exceptional. They have been constantly on call to help and advise every step of the way and offer the kind of clear, no- nonsense approach to moving forward and problem solving which is hard to find. If you are looking to expand your operations, look no further - you've found your dream team.”
- Jane Stuart, Incredible Eggs
“Mark’s programme helped to keep me focused and I was ready to take on a pilot within 4 months. Shortly after this I signed my second pilot (I now have 26).
Since completing my franchise of the business Mark has remained true to his word. On the occasions I have needed some help he has provided effective advice and he has endeavoured to keep in touch with Genie Tutors progress.”
- Luke Scrutton, Genie Tutors
“Since working with Mark our revenue has more than doubled. They are currently helping us reengineer the business as well as franchising. We have even had to move to bigger premises to cope with the additional work. We had a problem with one of our franchisees and the Franchise Agreement fully protected us and enabled us to terminate his franchise.”
- Matt Whitfield, Kitchen Respraying
“I have sold eight franchises in the last 15 months and hoping to take this to twelve in the next four months.

They have been superb throughout the whole journey and continue to be nothing but 100% behind our goals and objectives”
- Sean Whelan, Pest Control and Prevention

- Andrew Beveridge, Manufacturing
“I have worked with Mark and Julie for the last couple of years and found their help and service extremely valuable, especially because I am always very busy and don’t have the time to do too much myself. They have done 95% of everything in the production of all the Deliverables I needed PLUS they handle all my enquiries for me too. I have relied on the Franchise Agreement on two occasions and need another four UK sales to give me full UK coverage.”
- Damien Hodgson, UK Caravans Direct
“Mark has helped me sell three franchises in the first 2 months of working with him which is generating both front end and backend revenue.
Prior to working with Mark we had been quoted some ridiculously high fees ranging from £20k to £100k and were about to put the franchise project on hold as there were too much risk and cost involved. The whole project was into profit after just two months.
I have had to rely on the Franchise Agreement to get rid of a problem franchisee. It enabled me to terminate the franchise and secure a settlement fee for the remainder of the contract”
- David Ellmore, Glazing
“Our pilot franchise alone has generated me over £240k worth of business.”
