What is franchising?

There are many benefits to buying a franchise over starting a business from scratch:

Franchising is far more successful then independent businesses. 90% of independent start-ups do not succeed past 5 years; in contrast 90% of franchisees are still in business after 5 years.

A franchise enables a small business to compete with big businesses, more so than an independent small business, due to the pool of support from the franchisor and network of other franchisees (NI Business Info).

The ongoing support is one of the key reasons for the success of franchising. The franchisor has already gone through the pain of finding out what works and what doesn’t – they have invested in the systems and are now willing to teach you how to replicate it (British Franchising Association).

We Love Pets only awards franchises to suitable people, which has enabled the company to build a support network of hard working, ethical, friendly and helpful people.

The support providing to each other is invaluable. Our franchisees share ideas and best practice, and provide each other with the emotional support you can only find as part of a good franchise network.

We Love Pets are accredited by the British Franchising Association

The British Franchise Association (bfa) requires its members to comply with its Code of Ethical Conduct. Franchisor members, including We Love Pets, are assessed by the BFA and are periodically re-accredited to ensure they comply with the Code of Ethical Conduct. The Code of Ethical Conduct includes the following requirements (among others):

  • A prospective franchisor must pilot the concept before starting to franchise.
  • Requirements relating to the return of preliminary deposits.
  • Recruitment advertising must be free of ambiguity and misleading statements.
  • The parties must exercise fairness in all dealings with each other, including in the resolution of disputes. 
  • The BFA is in the process of amending the Code of Ethical Conduct to reflect the provisions of the updated European Code of Ethics for Franchising (revised in 2016 by the European Franchise Federation of which the BFA is a member).
