The results are in… we’re thrilled to announce that Business Doctors have been named 36th in Franchise Direct’s top 100 list of UK franchises! This is a huge achievement for all involved in the company, highlighting just how far Business Doctors has come since its opening back in 2004.
Co-owner and founder Matt Levington expressed his delight for Business Doctors latest success – “It’s wonderful to be recognised by the industry as being in the top 100 franchises in the UK. We’re particularly proud of this accomplishment as a homegrown British brand, built from the ground up over the last 17 years. Throughout this time, Business Doctors have now successfully exported to 11 other countries, the latest being Bulgaria who recently decided to join our growing team.”
How are the franchises ranked?
The top 100 UK Franchises is composed by Franchise Direct, the world’s leading portal for franchise and business opportunities. The listing is compiled in accordance with how well a franchise has met the following criteria:
• System size based on numbers of units in the UK and abroad
• Revenue for the system
• Stability and growth
• Number of years in operation
• Market expansion
The ranking also takes the following into consideration;
• Financial assistance to franchisees (direct or third-party)
• Social responsibility through community sponsorship or fundraising
• Environmental policy
• Awards and recognition
Our franchisee requirements have made this achievement even more special
This latest ranking is a significant milestone for our company – especially considering the requirements we hold our potential franchisees to. A selection of franchises available to purchase in the UK only require an initial financial investment from potential buyers. However, as a brand focused on supporting SME owners, we recognise the importance of the wider business community and local economies. Therefore, our success has depended on partnering with those motivated by the desire to help others. Investors without experience will not be considered – our focus has always been to take on experienced and qualified professionals who have a clear understanding of the SME business landscape.
From those at Business Doctors head quarters, to our many business advisors supporting companies across the globe, everyone has played their part in making Business Doctors into the franchise it is today. We’d like to thank you all for your ongoing work, support and dedication to the brand that’s constantly striving to help SMEs achieve their vision.
