Franchising is popular with franchisees and consumers!

Our Welwyn and Hitchin franchisee, Davinder Gharial, came to franchising from accountancy.

In just three years, he's managed to scale up by acquiring a second office.

Davinder is a massive advocate of the franchise business model, so much so, that he says in this video that, if he was starting out from scratch all over again, he would choose the franchise route!

However, it is not just franchisees that love the franchise model.  Consumers are supporters as well, and increasingly so.

Davinder's testimonial comes in the wake of recent news that consumers are increasingly preferring to interact with a franchise brand than a stand-alone brand.

More than one if five (21.4%) British consumers have admitted that they are more likely to buy a product or service if it belongs to a franchise, according to this research.  The study of 1,000 shoppers revealed that over half of respondents visit franchise businesses between 1 and 5 times in an average month and stated that "quality of service" was their top reason for choosing to visit.
