About CityLocal
Franchise

CityLocal’s franchise has a reputation for delivering the best local websites for towns and cities across the UK, Ireland and the rest of the world.

With a network of dedicated franchisees, CityLocal has built a strong and recognisable brand that has helped hundreds of cities and towns to brand themselves correctly.

Training and support provided

CityLocal is proud to offer a full training programme and an extensive support network for new franchisees.

Each new franchise costs between £5750 and £9950, and this license lasts for five years. Furthermore, every franchisee has exclusivity over their chosen geographical region.

The price of the franchise includes the cost of the local website as well as a dedicated marketing website. It also covers all training, as well as business cards and brochures, plus unlimited support via phone, email and Skype.

We offer an intensive three-day training programme for all new members. This includes one day at our headquarters in Leicester, with training typically taking place on a Tuesday between 1pm and 5.30pm. The other two days of training can be carried out remotely, so franchisees can take part from the comfort of their own home or from their office. Days two and three of the training course are generally held on a Wednesday and Thursday, and last from 9.30am until 2.30pm.

For franchisees who are taking part in the training course remotely, a good internet connection is essential.

A full marketing pack is provided to all franchisees, and this includes brochures, window stickers, PowerPoint presentations and business cards. Once a new franchisee has come on board, they will also have instant access to our private online forum where they can swap ideas and strategies with their colleagues across the world.

We also provide franchisees with their own CityLocal branded Facebook page, and smartphone app, so that each new website is ready to launch as quickly as possible.

The ideal CityLocal franchisee

All new franchisees are expected to show a strong work ethic and a dedication to the CityLocal franchise.

Before starting their business, each franchisee must have access to a laptop that is no more than two years old, and they must have internet access at their home or place of work.

It is also vital that new franchisees have their own telephone line and a good quality digital camera, as well as a comfortable desk and chair. We highly recommend that franchisees invest in a VOIP Headset with USB connection as this will come in useful during Skype support sessions. We like the Microsoft LX3000, which retails for around £20 at Asda or PC World.
