Most new Franchise Owners who join us have no prior experience of running our type of business. Therefore we supply everything you need to set up and start trading.
Immediately after you join us, an extensive programme of hands-on training is put into motion, taking place both at headquarters and at your own home. The training is designed to get you up and running and profitable as quickly as possible. Initial training is thoroughly comprehensive so you feel totally confident right from the outset.
Everything you require to run a successful business is installed directly into your home or office – Sage accounting software and your contact management software (Team Visual) will all be set up on your computer prior to installation. Additionally, all your production equipment will be installed into your unit / home office during 1-2-1 on-site production training.
Samples, Presenters and Sales Aids
We believe it absolutely essential to offer your customers maximum choice. Therefore you are provided with a range of samples, enabling you to be in a position of strength in front of customers from day one.
The package also includes sales brochures, catalogues, letterheads, business cards, price guidelines and operations manuals.
We want the best
As you can see, we provide you with everything you need to ensure a successful start to your business.
Our philosophy is quite simple; we want the best people to join us, so we supply a high value, all-inclusive package at a realistic price.
Some franchisees like to have the ability to print/decorate products ‘on-site’ and as such we provide a comprehensive ‘equipment package’ as part of the offering.
Many other franchisees would much rather spend their hard-earned time speaking with and meeting new and existing customers, building relationships, generating new business and looking after existing orders.
In these cases, franchisees have asked us to remove the equipment package.
The Recognition Express franchise is available for £25,000 (+ vat)
Should you wish to include the equipment then the total price is £35,000 (+ vat).
You will be able to reclaim the VAT in your first quarter.
We have excellent relationships with all the major banks and for a business with the history and performance record of Recognition Express we expect the banks to fund at 70% or the total required.
If you were looking to fund at £25,000 your personal commitment would be under £8,000 (plus vat)
