A franchise is the legal right to carry out a business in accordance with a particular operational method and under a specific brand. This includes the right to use trademarks, logos, a business system, operating procedures, IT and marketing techniques.

It can be seen as working for yourself and running your own business. However, you go to market with the benefits of an established name and a dedicated team supporting you with advice and guidance on how to operate effectively.

A further benefit of a Sanderson James franchise is that it also allows you to use your own trading name alongside a recognised and established brand.

Franchising links business ownership with operation of an established system. Franchisees can therefore focus their efforts and make key decisions in relation to local markets.

On that basis it's possible to derive significant benefits and build your own successful business.
