Full Description


Jackson Fire and Security – The management franchise opportunity you have been looking for – No experience required

Jackson Fire and Security is the first independent company in the UK to offer a management franchise business opportunity in the fire and security industry.

As a well-respected business working under the highest levels of industry accreditation we will help you to benefit from our decades of experience and the power of our established brand.

The Jackson Fire & Security franchise system enables franchise owners to offer the same high standards of equipment and customer service across the UK, backed up by a committed and experienced team at Jackson HQ.

A Legal Requirement

Every organisation operating from premises must install and maintain fire safety equipment ranging from the ever-present fire extinguisher to a fully zoned fire alarm system – this is a legal requirement. Most of these organisations also seek to protect their premises with a range of other solutions including intruder alarms, CCTV or access control – A Jackson Fire and Security franchise provides a solution to all of these requirements. Regular servicing of these installations by your team of engineers creates a recurring stream of income and helps organisations protect their people and premises.

Your Role

This is a management franchise. Part of your role will be to recruit and manage a team of qualified fire and security engineers. You will also be responsible for developing commercial relationships and new business in your territory. As a management franchise, no previous industry experience is required as we provide full training. To succeed however, you must have a strong sales background and the drive to grow a client base of repeat business service contracts. Full technical, marketing and accounting support is provided by Head Office.

The Market

Each franchise territory contains thousands of public and private sector buildings, all of which require the installation and maintenance of fire safety equipment by law. Also there is an ever present need for property owners to protect their premises from unwanted visitors and in restricting or managing access to their buildings. Installation and maintenance of effective intruder alarms, access control systems and CCTV is therefore a service which is always in demand.

The Financials

While the economic potential of the Jackson business formula is considerable, your earnings will still be largely dependent upon your effort, tenacity, and ability to follow the prescribed method.

Jackson Fire and Security have created a first-year marketing action plan designed to help you focus your valuable time on the activities needed to help you grow your business. In addition, your franchise package includes a proven marketing launch campaign developed with the assistance of our retained marketing agency. Our top franchisees turnover in excess of £50,000 per month and a fully functioning multi-van operation is capable of generating over £1 million turnover p.a. providing a net profit margin above 25%.

An initial investment of £39,500 + VAT is required for the franchise, which will provide your new business with all of the assets, stock, equipment and training required for you and your first engineer to launch a full-service business.

Is financial support available?

Yes, the main High Street banks prefer lending to franchises over new-start independent businesses because franchise start-ups enjoy a much greater track record of success. Most banks will advance between 50% and 70% of the total funding required. They will require you to present a business plan showing a detailed financial model for your business – we provide full business planning assistance.

The Skills Required

These are the skills our successful franchise owners need to fulfil their role:

  • Sales and/or Account Management Experience
  • Excellent People skills
  • A natural networker
  • A problem solver
  • Strong organisation and time management skills
  • An outstanding communicator and motivator

Benefits for Jackson Franchise Owners
