Description of franchise system
We understand franchising
Our founder enjoyed a holiday in beautiful Portugal when he read a book about McDonalds the most famous and largest franchise chain in the world. He soon realized that all successful franchise concepts depend upon a strong business model and it's rigid application.
At this time, Mr. Martin was providing training courses and he decided to give his most talented and motivated delegates the once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity to start their own business under his personal supervision.
Today, Martin & Co operates more than 175 offices all across the country, reinforcing our market leading position as the best lettings brand in the UK. We aim to have 200 offices on all of the key high streets in the UK by the end of this decade - will you help us to achieve this goal?
The winning formula
Franchising enables motivated individuals to set up their own business with the support of proven systems and an experienced franchisor. This eliminates most of the worries, stress, and uncertainties of starting a business totally on your own - which is often a highly risky and lonely route.
But franchising isn't a short cut to success. It still requires commitment and hard work. Our franchisees operate within their own, exclusive territory. We call our franchise territories ‘Area of Prime Responsibility’. You have the exclusive right to open new businesses within your Area of Prime Responsibility. Based on many years of business experience, we are able to define the criteria necessary to ensure that each franchise territory has the potential to nourish a successful Martin & Co business.
Our on-going and detailed training program plus dedicated support will make sure that you and your team are able to provide our cutting edge, unrivalled service. Our network is growing fast all over the country and our brand recognition and reputation for excellence are growing, too.
Our franchise concept offers an excellent opportunity and is perfect for anyone who want to become part of a successful franchise network - we provide our expertise and know-how and our franchisees provide the commercial flair, drive, and the important local flavor.
If you decide to join us as a franchisee, you need to be able to maintain our high standards of professionalism and service. There will be no compromises on the values upon which our company has been founded. Our reputation and brand is the key to success. So hard to earn and just too easy to lose!
