There are many reasons why you might look to start a business.

Maybe you’re frustrated with the restrictions of full-time employment, and you’re eager to take control of your own work schedule after years of working for someone else.

Or maybe you’re already an existing business owner, looking for a breakthrough opportunity that will bring sustainable rewards

Whatever your reason for wanting to work for yourself, typically the biggest barrier to starting a business is knowing what to start a business in.

That’s where franchising comes in. With a pre-existing brand and proven business model, you can become your own boss without having to come up with the next world-beating idea.

But with so many different franchise opportunities in the UK, it can be hard to tell what franchise will be the best fit for you.

Neighbourly makes that decision a little easier. With an established worldwide network of over 3,700 franchisees and an innovative vision that left Forbes magazine predicting that Neighbourly will beat Amazon in the skilled labour market, you HAVE to consider a Neighbourly franchise in your search for a new business venture.

  1. Neighbourly holds some of the best franchises in the UK

Neighbourly brands come with a range of different investment levels, starting as low as £17,995+VAT and spanning up to £44,950+VAT. Take a look below at the franchise fees for each franchise to see which will be the best fit for you:

“I was really impressed by the breadth of brands within the Neighbourly family. This creates huge opportunities for networking with more experienced business owners across all brands.” – Eve and Stuart Callister, Bright & Beautiful Malvern

As every homeowner knows, finding a tradesperson that you can trust to provide a quality, complete service is tough. That’s where we come in. With over 22 brands across the world, Neighbourly truly is a community of home service experts, and our ambition is to create a central hub for all of your home service needs, to be the first port of call for both domestic and commercial consumers.

Establishing a unified voice in the home services industry not only raises the collective profile of our brands but, as a franchisee, you’ll also be able to benefit from the inherent cross-marketing opportunities that such a model presents.

Our ultimate goal is to be the world leader in multi-branded service franchising, providing premium services to homes and businesses. We’re certainly on our way to making this vision a reality with Forbes magazine predicting that Neighbourly will beat Amazon in the skilled labour market.

  1. We’re growing at a rapid rate

With over 3,700 franchisees serving almost 9 million customers across nine different countries, it’s clear to see why Neighbourly is recognised as the world’s largest franchisor of home services companies.

We are determined to further develop our impressive portfolio of 22 worldwide brands by striving to add to our ever-expanding neighbourhood. Earlier this year we acquired the UK’s no. 1 kitchen design and installation company, Dream Doors, and we continue to seek out other equally exciting franchise opportunities.

We’ve invested heavily in our teams in the UK by bolstering our management team with the creation of new positions. This significant growth of our head office staff means that we can provide enhanced support to our network of more than 250 franchisees and further position the company for even greater growth.

There’s never been a better time to become a franchisee with Neighbourly.

“2018 has been an exciting year for Neighbourly across Europe and we have achieved some great milestones throughout the year, from investing substantially in our infrastructure to improving our business efficiency and communication for our employees, franchisees and customers. 2019 is going to be equally momentous for us as we look to open up many more opportunities for us to grow our network of franchisees across our brands even further across the UK.” – Jeff Myers, Vice-President of International Operations

In addition to the expansion of our teams at head office, we’ve also seen over 30 new franchisees join our neighbourhood this year already. Our brands are in high demand, so don’t delay – get in contact with our expert team to secure your territory of choice.

  1. Our core values and a strong sense of community

By becoming a Neighbourly franchisee, you’ll be joining our growing network of business owners from a variety of UK franchise brands. Being a part of a supportive community proves to be an invaluable asset for our franchisees who all regularly communicate to share their successes and challenges without the threat of competition.

“There is a real sense of family across franchisees, both in their brand and across the other brands. There is plenty of support for businesses just starting out as well as those that are more mature.” – Sue Mark, Bright & Beautiful Hedge End

In order to maintain this sense of community and to ensure our high standards remain consistent among our franchisees, it is imperative that everyone is of the same mindset. Our code of values provides each member of the Neighbourly community with a clear sense of identity; understanding who we are as a company, what we stand for and why we exist is vital to ensuring all parties work together effectively to achieve our shared vision.

That’s why all Neighbourly associates adhere to our Live RICH philosophy – Respect, Integrity, Customer Focus and Having fun in the process. Our core values are not just words, they’re our way of life.

So, why wait? Become a part of our neighbourhood and take control of your destiny. But don’t just take our word for it – take a look at what some of our franchisees had to say:

“The day to day of running your own business gives you a real buzz. We enjoy the challenges and tests we are faced with daily, but the overall freedom we have over our own lives has enabled us to live a much better lifestyle than we could have ever imagined before.” – Josh and Lisa Parker, Drain Doctor Oxford

“I’d been aspiring to start up my own business again for a number of years and knew I had the experience, commitment and enthusiasm to make it work. Mr. Electric gave me the opportunity to go into business delivering a service that I am passionate about.” – Grant Bolger, Mr Electric Wakefield

“When we started the business over 22 years ago, we never imagined growing to the size we are today – hiring our 80th employee and looking after 3,000+ sites.” – Ian Michael and Richard Ball, Countrywide South Wales

“If you’re thinking of becoming a franchisee, I’d definitely recommend it. I’d also recommend that you do your homework, go on a taster session and meet the team. Do also have a look around at the competition because I genuinely think Bright & Beautiful is the best.” – Sam Barcley, Bright & Beautiful Manchester
