Company Overview

The Blazes Renewables franchise business is the result of 25 years of successful franchising.  Franchisees offer a range of energy saving and carbon reducing technologies to commercial clients. Our main focus is on converting traditional lighting to LED and installing Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems. Our franchisees operate their businesses without the need for expensive offices choosing instead to work from home. Not only does this reduce fixed costs but also allows our franchisees to operate on a flexible time scale to fit in with their family commitments.

Franchise Overview

Blazes has been franchising for over 20 years. Our focus on renewable energy and energy saving products and services was a natural evolvement from our established heating business.

In the renewable sector we currently have five franchisees and one company-owned operation. Outside of the M25, we have a total of 50 territories available.

Our long experience in franchising means that new franchisees can be assured of strong, efficient and professional guidance from our support team and will benefit from our investment in online CRM support services.

Training

A Blazes Renewables franchisee need not be a technical person. Our initial five-day training course will provide the basics and the early days of “shadowing” by our technical support staff will prepare the franchisee to be competent in carrying out site surveys. Our bespoke online CRM and Quote Builder systems provide the means to design and cost the projects.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

Our franchisees generate business by offering companies free, no obligation energy surveys. These offers are eagerly accepted by businesses who are constantly seeking cost-effective ways of meeting their statutory obligations to reduce energy consumption and carbon production. A franchisee very quickly builds up a base of clients to work with.

Franchisees then project manage qualified installers, working closely with the client, the installer and the Blazes head office through this process.
