why franchise?

There are several reasons why taking up one of the many UK franchise opportunities is a popular option for those looking to start their own business. For some, it's about being able to avoid the many inevitable stresses (financial and otherwise) and extensive groundwork that come with starting a business completely from scratch on one’s own. For others, it's about leveraging the awareness and reputation of an existing brand to drive greater sales and customer engagement. For all, it's about the excellent opportunities that are made available through franchising: the chance to work with an experienced team who will support and guide you, the chance to gain valuable business acumen whilst you grow your franchise and the opportunity to learn the secrets behind what makes a brand successful enough to franchise in the first place! And when it comes to being successful, it’s hard to top the 87 years that Harry Ramsden’s has been operating family restaurant and ‘fast food’ franchises in the UK... 

Profitable, Proven Business Format

The Harry Ramsden's business model has proven to be a winning formula; where simple, Great British food and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere has kept families coming back again and again for our fabulous fish and chips, generation after generation. Utilising our experience, as a franchisee you will enjoy the benefits of a well-established, tried-and-tested (for decades) business format, which succeeds in greatly reducing risk and maximising profits. To franchise in the UK, where competition in the food sector is fierce, you do need this water-tight, sturdy business model to keep at the top – something which Harry Ramsden’s has certainly done when it comes to fish and chips, being the world’s most famous brand. You may come across many franchise businesses for sale whilst looking for the perfect opportunity for yourself, but none that have a track record that’s almost 90 years strong. So bear this in mind when assessing your franchise options, and please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. 

Comprehensive Start Up & Ongoing Support

From the moment you become a Harry Ramsden’s franchisee, you will enjoy the support of our dedicated Franchise Team, who will provide comprehensive start up support: assisting in everything from sourcing finance and securing your location to helping to recruit your team. They will work with you to create a thorough marketing plan surrounding the launch of your franchise, ensuring you hit the ground running and have the best possible start. What’s more, the support and guidance doesn't end when your restaurant or fast food franchise opens its doors for the first time – far from it, in fact. We'll continue to be there to help, every step of the way. The simple reason being: the more successful you are, the more successful we are! A successful franchise business is one where each sale is equally beneficial for both the franchiser and the franchisee. 

Brand Awareness

It’s not a surprising fact that customers are largely more comfortable purchasing food from a brand that they already know, and as the UK's longest established restaurant brand, Harry Ramsden's is about as well-known as they come – not just in terms of the Great British fish and chip experience but in UK restaurants generally. And it’s not just on these shores where we lead the way; Harry Ramsden’s has a global reputation as the home of fish and chips. 

So. Take the next step in becoming part of the grand Harry Ramsden’s tradition and make an enquiry today. We will send you all the information you need and will be on hand for any questions you may have.
