BizSmart® expands its business support into Birmingham and Solihull with the launch of its second franchise 


Leading Worcestershire business support provider, BizSmart®, has expanded into the West Midlands region, with the launch of its second franchise: BizSmart® Birmingham and Solihull.

Established in 2012, BizSmart® is renowned for its success in bringing like-minded business leaders together via peer-to-peer learning and engagement and has built a reputation as the support provider of choice.

Having helped hundreds of businesses across Worcestershire to scale up, grow their profits and improve their operating practices, founder and managing director, Kevin Brent, launched the BizSmart® franchise model in 2020 to give proven professionals the opportunity to build and establish their own business support offering under the BizSmart® umbrella.

The launch of BizSmart® Birmingham and Solihull follows the success of its first Franchise, BizSmart® Gloucestershire, which has just celebrated its first year in business. The franchise has also expanded, adding an additional member to its team.

Acquired by Luke Townsend, a proven entrepreneur, who has built and exited from his own businesses, and supported other business owners in developing their sales strategies – a specific area of expertise for him, the new BizSmart® Birmingham and Solihull franchise will enable business leaders across the region to benefit from the brand’s proven scale-up system, while providing much needed peer-to-peer support during this economically challenging time. 

Luke Townsend, owner of BizSmart® Birmingham and Solihull, stated: “Having worked with BizSmart for six months, I have experienced first-hand the benefits of its proven scaleup system, while witnessing the impressive growth of its first franchise, BizSmart® Gloucestershire.

I am, therefore, delighted to be representing BizSmart® across Birmingham and Solihull and to be helping business leaders achieve profitable and sustainable growth at this critical time.”

Kevin Brent, founder and managing director of BizSmart®, said: I am delighted to welcome Luke to BizSmart® and to celebrate the launch of BizSmart® Birmingham and Solihull.

Having dedicated the last decade to honing our approach to business support, we are committed to helping as many business leaders as possible escape the owner-manager trap and scale beyond 7-figures. I am in no doubt Luke will be a great asset to the BizSmart® brand and look forward to seeing him grow the Franchise over the months and years to come.”
