Rachel, EweMove

Rachel from Ewemove

Rachel approached us on the recommendation of EweMove and asked us to prepare a business plan so that she could obtain the necessary finance for her new franchise.

The Outcome

Franchise Finance duly prepared a comprehensive business plan which Rachel then used to arrange the appropriate finance with a high street bank and so enable her to start her EweMove franchise.

Here’s what Rachel had to say:

"Having never been self-employed before or ever requested finance for a business, I am very grateful to Franchise Finance for putting together a very professional and comprehensive business plan which I presented to my bank. Franchise Finance know the business model of my franchise and with this knowledge incorporated into the plan, my application was successful.

Dean, Esquires Coffee

Dean has worked in the large corporate world for 30+ years, where he has progressed to a high level of responsibility, which has given him a strong level of business awareness and a good set of transferable skills.

Dean from Esquires Coffee

Dean felt that it was the right time to do something for himself, and look to give something back to the community that had helped to shape him as an individual. After looking at the various options, he felt that the product quality and ethical approach of an Esquire’s franchise business, met these requirements and represented an exciting new challenge and opportunity for him.

Dean asked Franchise Finance to prepare his business plan, firstly to determine the viability of the business opportunity, and secondly to raise any necessary finance to successfully set up the business.

The Outcome

Franchise Finance duly prepared a comprehensive business plan which showed a viable outcome for Dean, before helping him to arrange the necessary finance with a High Street bank lender, to enable him to open his new Esquires Coffee franchise business.

Here's what Dean had to say:

"I was always sceptical of previous reviews, however, having engaged Franchise Finance to assist with the preparation of my business plan, and securing finance, I have to say the service was faultless…Glyn was able to navigate a way through the ever stressful conundrum and using his market knowledge, and professional network was able to introduce me to a very reputable institution who were happy and able to offer me the finance necessary on terms better than I could have hoped for. To anyone considering a franchise, I would very strongly recommend engaging Franchise Finance as early as possible, their knowledge and expertise will make your journey as pain free as possible."
