The initial training course lasts six weeks and is residential at our support centre in Norwich. All training fees, meals and accommodation are included in the franchise fee. Further training is available to franchisees and their staff, both in Norwich and regionally.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

You will be networking with small businesses and business referral partners to generate leads locally, along with following up on enquiries generated via national advertising. Business development will be your initial focus! You will also be building a team of employees, who will be responsible for accounts production, and managing the practice to ensure that it is run in a profitable and compliant manner.
