£100 Million Franchise Investment Fund
Hallmark Solicitors are excited to inform our clients and contacts of recent developments in the Franchising Sector.
Both Natwest & Lloyds TSB have launched a new £100 million investment fund to help new franchises.
This new fund is expected to create up to 1,800 new franchise businesses and 24,000 new jobs in the UK.
This funding will make life easier for new franchises in the UK by providing between £25,000 and £500,000 per company.
It goes without saying that this is a good time to consider franchising your business or becoming a franchise owner.
Why Franchise your Business
If you already own a business franchising can be an excellent strategy.
Through franchising many businesses have found that they are able to compete more effectively in the market place by harnessing the resources and enthusiasm of motivated franchisees. Many of these businesses have managed to go on to become market names.
It must however, be pointed out that the road to effectively and ethically franchising should seldom be travelled alone. A number of questions must be asked and answered.
Amongst others are the question of Legal requirements and documentation of a franchising business, such as:
Protection of Intellectual Property
Protection of the Principal Business
Documentation governing the relationship between the Franchisor and Franchisees
