Van Based franchise opportunities

The British have discovered a 'wheelly' good idea for business success – one that keeps overheads low and takes products direct customers. Hundreds of enterprising folk are starting to work from home and base their business in the back of a van. Or, in some cases, a fleet of vans. This is not simply a 'man with a van'; it's hundreds of business propositions. This level of ingenuity has played a big part in the fact that, in 2016, there were 80 new ventures being launched every hour!

This means Britain now has an army of 5.4 million small and medium sized ventures. How can you become self employed thanks to the versatile opportunities presented by light commercial vehicles? The answer to that could well be a van based franchise.

What sort of van-based franchises are there?

Thanks to the internet, being your own boss with a van-based franchise is possible for people in every corner of the UK. The list of potential business concepts that lend themselves to van-based franchises is massive.

You could deliver pet nutrition with Trophy Pet Foods, provide window services with Just Shutters, be a handy man with Hire a Hubby, repair other vehicles body work with Revive or deliver cooking oil to catering businesses with FiltaFry. Or, you could use a converted van to serve food at events and street food festivals or deliver freshly made coffee.

Van franchise versus independent

Though starting up a van-based franchise may be a low cost and straight forward way to become self employed, don’t be fooled into thinking a standalone venture is that easy. A van-based franchise gives you a recognised brand and marketing power including a website – and, therefore, potential customers from day one. It also offers favourable rates on vehicles, stock, insurance and uniforms, for example.

Which van-based franchise is best for you? Contact us to be at the vanguard of business innovation on four wheels.
