If you are an experienced professional who can comfortably work at MD/Owner level then there may be an opportunity for you to join us here at Lime Licensing Group and take over our established Head Office franchise region which is the original franchise location and one that has consistently traded profitably from Day 1. Our business has been established for 12 years and continues to thrive even through the pandemic with revenues more than doubling year on year.
There are more companies looking to franchise their business now than at any other time and there are more potential franchisees looking for a new career. Add to that the fact that our business model has seamlessly moved significantly to a Zoom model delivering our consultancy without the usual travel time and therefore expenses and we think our consultancy business is amongst the best available professional format franchises in any sector. Franchising is booming!
Already proven in several regions and based on 27 years of expertise you could join us providing industry leading franchise consultancy solutions. You’ll work with every type of business in a large and exclusive region of the UK providing a highly valued service that has had consistent rising demand.
We act as retained franchise specialists for our clients and deal with enquiries and meetings on their behalf. Part of what Lime does is also providing specific consultancy solutions, training and advice. We’re very much a “go to” resource for franchisors, particularly those looking to launch a new franchise network from scratch.
Consultancy franchises come and go and can be quite difficult to learn, but most of what we do can be taught and what you’re not capable of doing right now can be provided centrally until such time as you can facilitate it yourself. Lime’s Head Office has an extensive franchise inventory that fits every eventuality and is unique to Lime.
By joining us you’ll benefit from Lime’s powerful marketing prowess. For example, our website has numerous page 1 / position 1 google rankings for the main keywords and phrases we want to be known for. We also have an extensive marketing inventory that includes printed and online marketing and PR. When restrictions allow we also do local and national business events either with our pop up banners or our Lime shell scheme, for the time being those events are virtual.
We are quite secretive about exactly how we do it. Over many years now we have seen other franchise consultants and consultancy businesses come and go. Our “secret sauce” has been created through decades of hands-on experience as franchisors ourselves. We’ve become the trusted advisors to many franchising entrepreneurs and our business is stable, profitable and firmly established as a key provider of franchising services around the UK.
To be successful with us you’ll need to be able to win the trust of business owners and prospective franchise owners. It’s essential that you can cut it in the board room and also on the factory floor. If you have the gravitas to deal with people from every background at every level then we need to talk.
We’re looking for people to join our team anywhere in the Yorkshire / North East area to complement our existing offices in the South West, London, Cambridgeshire, and Manchester.
You’ll need to work hard of course, as you would in any other business and our clients rely upon us to provide the guidance and tangible support they need to create compelling franchise systems and also to recruit a large national franchise network. So this franchise opportunity is not one that anyone can just rock up and buy, we value people we get on with, and people we can trust, and we’ll look after you if we work together. However, it is true that we’re probably the fussiest franchisor you’ll ever meet when it comes to who we’ll offer a franchise to!
You’ll get great training, spread out at a pace that suits you. You’ll also be personally mentored by our MD and learn from our other franchise owners. The rewards are significant with a well above average executive income potential. It’s also a great fun business working with entrepreneurs at every level.
Our overheads are minimal and we work flexible hours and days. If you have a professional background and want a proven executive business then this may well be the franchise you have been waiting for - there is nothing quite like it!
We are based in Harrogate, and previously in Bradford however your own location doesn't matter. It is however an advantage to be located within the Yorkshire / North East region
You'll work from a home office or a serviced office if that is your preference.
Very scalable, certainly with a six figure potential depending on the work/life balance you prefer. Our current offices have all had 5 figure months and several have generated over £20,000 in a single month.
The franchise industry is a £17 Billion market place and we respect those companies who have the skills and expertise to do what we do. We have proved over and over again though that compared to others many choose to work with us.
As Lime has expanded through appointing it's own franchisees the owners will be stepping away from direct client work to further support the UK franchise team and establish Lime in additional countries to add to it's recently established Canadian office.
Totally flexible days and hours
Standard franchise terms
Lime has an extensive care pack for it's franchisees. Starting with a solid training course and then a significant amount of practical support, education and face to face mentoring and accompanied client meetings until you are comfortable on your own.
