A leading niche Franchise Opportunity which continues to develop and go from strength to strength, the only qualified UK Company to offer the Continued Professional Development accredited Emergency Canine Care Course. Holding workshops delivering advice and training in connection with administering First Aid to dogs should an emergency situation arise, typical attendees being those involved and working in the dog industry such as dog walkers, groomers, boarders, trainers and handlers, in addition to simple dog owners. Franchisees have their own specific area in which to hold the workshops, qualifications are not required to deliver the courses albeit comprehensive training is provided to new Franchisees together with ongoing back-up support. Owners benefit from being home based and being able to work flexible hours and this coupled with low day to day overheads offers the potential for excellent levels of profitability - the Franchisor being so confident in the opportunity they offer a money back guarantee on a Franchisees initial investment.

Upon becoming a Franchisee comprehensive training is received, both at Head Office and in the field, the training programme is bespoke and includes the shadowing of existing trainers, webinars and work books. Training does not just cover the practical skills of delivering the course but also the general running of your business to include marketing and lead generation, boosting revenue streams through the targeting of key market sectors.

To ensure course content is current and update regular training is held with veterinarians.

TRADING HOURS

Working hours for Franchisees are flexible, the Franchisor recommends a minimum of 4 workshops are held each month.

TAKINGS

The majority of Franchisees generate income of between £2,000 and £3,000 per month albeit some generate income in excess of £5,000 per month. Should a Franchisee not cover their initial investment in year 1 then a money back guarantee is offered. Ongoing Franchise costs consist purely of a Royalty amounting to 10% of sales revenue, this is then apportioned by the Franchisor to 8% in respect of administration and 2% in respect of marketing.

COMMENTS
