About You / What we’re looking for in a Franchisee

Do you want to be in control of your own destiny and to have the opportunity to have the work-life balance you crave?

While a lot of the work you’ll be doing to run a successful Total Guide to Franchise ends up being a combination of work and pleasure (whether meeting interesting business owners and having the satisfaction of helping them grow their business, being invited to fantastic restaurants and events to write reviews, and constantly writing about the place you live and love), you can dictate your working hours.

  • Individuals looking to set up their own business quickly with minimal risk and investment
  • Local councils, BIDs or Chambers of Commerce looking for an all-encompassing local website which can be monetised
  • Young Entrepreneurs wanting to take control of their own destiny without the constraints of a big corporate and to learn on the job with the support of an established brand
  • Parents wanting to work from home and around the kids’ school/childcare times
  • Anyone wanting to set up their own business with interest and skills in sales, digital marketing and writing
  • Those passionate and knowledgeable about the town/city or area they live
