We have developed the support infrastructure to ensure that you have the best opportunity to rapidly grow your business and increase your impact. You will be allocated a franchisee mentor who will support you for the first 14 months of your business as well as the ongoing support of everyone at head office. You will be invited to attend core training sessions throughout the year to ensure you are kept up to date with exciting delivery and brand developments. You will also receive an invite to our annual National Training Event. Our central support team are available to you via our online business management system.
The initial induction course covers a comprehensive selection of topics including product and orientation, sales, business, finance, delivery, recruitment and marketing. In addition, you will attain a selection of externally accredited activity qualifications. Upon successful completion of the induction course, you will have the knowledge and accreditation to engage and deliver in schools. If you are investing in a franchise as a partnership, a second person is eligible for the full training provided, at no extra cost.
After attending one of our Discovery Sessions, we are happy to share our franchise agreement with you. We are also able to recommend BFA affiliated lawyers so you are able to get this independently checked.
Of course – this is something we actively encourage. Not only can you speak with our network of existing franchisees, you will have the opportunity to observe a ‘day in the life of a franchisee’ and attend a delivery session where possible.
The initial franchise agreement term is for five years. Renewals are also five years, granted on set terms and further business planning. The initial franchise fee isn’t required for renewals. A copy of the Franchise Agreement with full details will be made available through the recruitment process.

Yes. We have long, established relationships with the franchise teams at many high street banks and our partners at Franchise Finance. In light of our successful trading history and full membership with the British Franchise Association (BFA) you will have access to preferential bank finance packages. Typically, the bank will lend you up to 70% of your overall working capital requirement. There are also start-up loans available for up to £25,000 to help you launch your business. Finance is subject to status and we are happy to look into this for you.
You will be given access to our coach candidate database which holds thousands of names of people who have applied to work for the Premier. In addition, a dedicated franchisee mentor is on hand to support you with the recruitment process and beyond. We have an app-based recruitment system which is fully integrated with our database of potential coaches. It gives you much more control over recruitment whilst reducing the number of hours required to find the perfect team.
