About Marks and Spencer
franchise

Mention Marks & Spencer and the words style and elegance comes to mind. We are a world leader when it comes to the retail of top quality clothing, food products, and home supplies. We also enjoy the leading status in the production of Women's and Mens Wear. Moreover, Marks & Spencer is a leading industry that takes social responsibility to heart. Thus we make sure that we run our business in a way that helps conserve energy and reduce waste.

Aside from the presence of 1,382 M&S stores all over the world, we have also started offering our products online. We continue our vision to reach a much wider marker by opening more stores across various parts of the world. Our stores are either corporate owned, a joint venture, or a franchise package. With 132 years of experience and being a pioneer in many retail trends that have emerged through the years, M&S can already be considered an institution. This is a journey and goal we would like to share with you as we open our doors to interested franchisees.

Training and support provided

Marks and Spencers provides its franchisees with continuous training before and after the opening of your store. As a franchisee, we will provide you with various kinds of assistance such as in recruitment, training, marketing, and advertising. As a franchisee, you will also be provided with technological assistance. You will be able to reach potential customers as you will have your own website. This way, you will be able to show them your products and their prices.

The ideal Marks and Spencer franchisee

We are slowly decreasing the number of apparel stores carrying the M&S brand. However, in our efforts to extend the M&S brand, we have forged partnerships with companies in different product areas. This paves the way for more franchising opportunities for those who are interested. For instance, we have partnered with HSBC to boost our financial services arm. Our company has also ventured into the gas and electricity sector in partnership with SSE, one of UKs leading energy firms.

But at the forefront of our franchising efforts is Simply Foods. It is our aim to put stores in the most convenient locations such as railway stations to motorway services. We have partnered with different companies such as WHSmith, SSP UK, iCompass Group, Moto, and others. These are giants in the food sector which can be instrumental in our drive to push Simply Foods store.
