Ashtons Franchise Consulting has been guiding & supporting businesses to grow through franchising since 1981.

We offer a team of personable and professional consultants. All have worked as, or for, franchisors, and two of the team have been franchisees, enabling us to offer valuable and unique insights.

In the last 5 years, we have had 3 clients as finalists in the “Emerging Franchisor” category at the British Franchise Association Awards, with 2 of them winning it:


  • 2023 – Get a Drip (Finalist)
  • 2020 – My Window Cleaner (Winner)
  • 2019 – Radfield Homecare (Winner)


We have helped a wide range of businesses in many industries & sectors to franchise.
From new franchisors to existing franchise expansion into the UK or to international markets, we have the expertise to advise & support the development of your franchise strategy. In fact we’ve helped literally 100’s of brands with their franchise objectives.

As long-standing as advisor members of the British Franchise Association, we have gained a reputation for helping our clients in a different way to our competitors, focusing on working at your pace and budget to deliver what you want – rather than offering a “one size fits all” approach.

We offer a personal, dedicated franchise consultancy service – we are with you throughout your franchise development journey.
