Daily Life of a Franchisee
Like any small business a Northwood franchisee can expect to have a busy but varied day. Dealing with landlords, tenants and suppliers means spending time both in the (high street) office and out conducting appointments. However, the advantage of the Northwood business model means that a Northwood franchisee avoids being a “busy fool” but instead can focus on a smaller, more profitable property portfolio. The weekday office hours are 9am to 5pm and then two hours on a Saturday, thereby ensuring that a sensible work-life balance is possible.
