ChipsAway has been sharing what its franchisees should expect from their franchisor throughout their business journey.

Tim Harris, Managing Director of ChipsAway and Ovenclean, has revealed what franchisees should look for when choosing which franchisor to begin their business journey with.

He explained that, before even starting your search for the right franchise, you should be honest with yourself and evaluate which areas youre likely to need more support or training in. Harris advised that its vital to work out what you want from your franchise, whether its a better work/life balance, maximum profit potential or the chance to work in an industry you love.

Harris said:

Find out everything you can about brands youre attracted to, ask to speak to existing and past franchisees, and carefully examine all its marketing materials. A franchisor should be happy to arrange this and will make sure you have got all the information you need to make an informed decision.

Harris also shared his opinion on the kinds of things a good franchisor, like ChipsAway, should provide.

Your franchisor should make sure you have access to all the tried and tested materials from business stationery and marketing materials through to your own branded equipment, such as helping you arrange a professionally liveried van, or premises. When choosing your franchise, finding out whats included and what costs extra, can help you make your decision.

The van based franchises franchisees backed up Harris statements and explained how they feel that ChipsAway has helped them during their business journey.

Alan Wilson said:

I had never held a spray gun before but felt confident after my four weeks of practical training to hit the ground running and established the necessary business turnover that I required very quickly.

Jim and Caroline Clennell also sang the franchises praises.

The training is amazing! Its a month-long course to give you the skills, which is rigorously assessed and gives you an IMI qualification. The advanced course, which is completed a few months later, is also crucial and a great opportunity to reconnect with the basics too. The technical support is great the team are always at the end of a phone, and their industry experience is invaluable.
