Van Based franchise opportunities

If you have been dreaming of running your own business but are not sure how to start things off, a van based franchise business could be perfect. A franchise will provide all the benefits of being your own boss whilst also giving you the resources of a larger company to call upon. A van based franchise can be easy to operate and set up, and many have unlimited earning potential.

What do I need to start a van based franchise?

The most obvious thing is a driving licence, unless you are working with another person who is willing to do the driving. You will also need some start up capital, this will vary widely depending on the popularity of the franchise, competition in the area and also the type of van based business. Great interpersonal skills are also needed in this type of work - often you will be travelling around meeting new people and hopefully building long lasting relationships. There is no need to possess previous managerial experience in fact, in the 2016 UK Franchising Survey 44.5% of respondents had never worked in a managerial role.

What type of van based franchise should I go for?

Try not to focus on the well known brands, pick something which you will enjoy doing and where there is little competition in your location. If you have trained in a particular area this is obviously the best route to go down, but when it comes to running your own business enjoying what you do goes a long way towards helping you succeed. Van based franchises vary widely, from standard delivery businesses and mobile coffee vans to painters and mechanics.

If you are thinking about starting a franchise but need some more advice don't hesitate to contact us, we are here to answer your questions and get you set up on the path to success.
