Recreation franchise opportunities

More than ever before, the British are happy to invest time and money in quality recreation activities. The evidence for this is clear. One in every seven people in the UK are now members of a gym. That's at least 9.7 million adults investing in their fitness. We also love finding recreational fun outside of working hours, with increasing numbers of visits and stays to places in the UK. According to Visit England, during a three month period, 7.3 million UK holidaymakers chose to take a break on their own shores. If you need further proof that recreation is big business these days, golf clubs have enjoyed their biggest membership growth this century.

This is a great moment to choose to launch a recreation franchise.

Wide choice of franchise opportunities in recreation

As this is such a huge and dynamic industry, the opportunities are highly diverse - including niches aimed at all ages. For example, you could open a fitness and fun franchise aimed at children with Fit Kids, Tumble Tots or The Little Gym. Or take up a franchise with The Woodhouse Day Spa brand.

Other examples include organising community soccer teams under the Leisure Leagues brand, or open a UK hotel under Choice, Premier Inn or Travelodge to capture the staycation trade.

Why recreation franchises make sense

Apart from benefiting from the customer loyalty an established name brings, you can also get a wealth of business management support. A recreation franchise arrangement enables you to “go it alone” but with specialist advice on topics such as insurance, legal compliance and planning regulations. You also get marketing support – including a website usually – to get you trading successful from the first day.

Plus, you often get preferential rates on equipment and supplies - discounts not available to smaller independents. You can sit back and relax, while you enjoy browsing through all the recreation franchises suitable for you, by contacting us. We are happy to do the leg work.
