Whether you have a successful business model that you’d like to replicate in new and unfamiliar areas or just starting out in business and don’t have the time or money to build your own market profile, franchising can be an attractive option. Equally, appointing an agent or a distributor in an unfamiliar market can be a good way of taking advantage of local knowledge to gain further markets for your products or services. All three options can be fraught with difficulty. You need someone to guide you through the options, the potential problems and the pitfalls, and to help identify further opportunities.
At Kitsons, we have a wealth of experience relating to the world of franchising and distribution. We act for both franchisors and franchisees and for distributors, principals and agents. Our experience covers a huge range of market sectors including motor industry, fast food, Post Offices, retail, photocopiers and reprographics, professional services, foodstuffs, catering as well as international distribution rights.
We’ll take time to understand your needs and give you guidance on the decisions you have to make. Our wealth of practical experience means we have probably encountered any difficulties you come across many times before. We believe in providing practical solutions that reflect the commercial realities of the world out there.
