Daily Life of a Franchisee


Working in partnership with the Club, you will have help, advice and assistance to get you started – and support once you are up and running. No days are the same as a Club franchisee!

Franchisees are expected to be hands-on in the running of their campsite, undertaking a wide variety of jobs from pitching campers and cleaning toilets to manning the reception and cutting the grass.  Franchisees will also be required to complete all the day-to-day business and finance tasks involved.
