“Phil and the Ashtons Franchise Consulting team have been a fantastic support while launching my franchise business. I honestly would not have been able to complete this process without them. After initially signing Ashtons up at the beginning of February 2021, I signed my first franchisee in June with their official launch in July, with the next franchisee signing up in September. I never expected to have the process completed, with my first two franchisees fully functioning so quickly.
Phil has been a great help with my countless questions along the way and has also offered invaluable advice on my business in general, which has not only benefited my franchise model, but my business also. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ashtons Franchise Consulting to anyone looking for support with franchising their business”. Camilla Culshaw, Founder, The Teepover Club.
“We worked with Phil over a period of six months to set up and launch our new pest control franchise business and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to others in the same position. Phil is knowledgeable, capable, professional and reliable. He’s gone above and beyond to get us up and running and we’re thrilled with the progress we’ve made since”. Caroline Szeremeta, Franchise Business Development Lead at PGH Beegone Franchising Limited.

The amount of information that Charlie shared with me was incredible, he is extremely knowledgeable. Franchising my business to me was just an idea, Ashtons Franchise Consultancy made it a reality. I had the pleasure of working with Charlie for the past few months and he has been very thorough with his process as well as able to put together all the documents very efficiently. He is very organised. Above all I was impressed with how quickly he responds to emails and being able to provide clear explanations about my queries on franchising. Also, it’s worth mentioning that I am based in London and Charlie travelled from Scotland for meetings. I highly recommend working with Ashtons Franchise Consultancy and Charlie has made it very easy for me to say so.

He has access to a great network of contacts which have really propelled our business and franchise opportunity to the next level – from targeted territory mapping to a custom-built CRM Booking tool. His expertise has undoubtedly been priceless to us throughout this process and we have always felt that he is genuinely as passionate about our business, ideas and growth as we are, which has given us full confidence in his recommendations.”
