A long-established franchise consultancy, Ashtons have been helping companies to grow through franchising since 1981; from new businesses starting out to existing franchises expanding into international markets. We are not a one-man band, but a team of consultants throughout the UK, and have assisted hundreds of brands with their franchise development objectives. As long-standing associates of the British Franchise Association, we have a reputation for helping our clients in a different way from many of our competitors, focusing on working at their pace and budget to deliver what they want – rather than offering a “one size fits all” approach.
Our consultants provide a full one-stop shop of specialised services available to help clients grow and franchise their business.
For businesses new to franchising:
No cost first exploratory face to face meeting offering general advice, guidance and direction
Preparing you to franchise, from conception to launch
For existing franchisors services include:

Recruitment of franchisees
We recognise that every business / franchisor is unique; therefore, each proposal is tailored to meet specific individual requirements and budgets.
