The UK franchise industry is experiencing rapid growth, according to a new study – and it is also reflected in our new etyres branch openings.
Leading industry directory Franchise Direct UK, has reported that the sector is growing at a faster rate than the national economy and the results of its Prospective Franchisee Survey 2014* offer a fascinating insight into what kind of businesses are maintaining their appeal and have thrived during tough economic times.
While the survey reveals that food remains the most popular industry in the franchise sector, it is closely followed by the internet and retail. It also confirms that brand recognition, along with training and on-going support, are key factors in helping prospective Franchise Owners choose the right business for them – all attributes of an etyres franchise.
Franchise Direct, which helps thousands of people with a wide range of backgrounds and objectives to find and buy a franchise that suits them, has already welcomed over one million visitors to its website so far this year, a record-breaking number with four weeks of 2014 still remaining.
The directory site’s rise in visitors over the last few years also reflects the increasing awareness that the franchise sector offers potential investors exciting opportunities to launch a successful business available in all types of industry and at all levels of investment.
etyres, which has the distinction of being the UK’s first online mobile tyre fitting company, continues to prove that we offer a recession-proof opportunity for Franchise Owners who are hard-working, self-motivated and committed to delivering excellent customer service.
With six new Franchise Owners opening branches in the last few months, and several more preparing to start their training programmes ahead of their 2015 launch, we are continuing to expand our nationwide network at an impressive rate.
Our tried-and-tested formula and comprehensive training and on-going support programme have provided our network of Franchise Owners with a springboard to success for the last 20 years and allowed them to reap all the benefits of building their own business, while operating under the security and umbrella of a trusted name in the tyre industry.
