Kindling provide services to businesses of all sizes and all budgets, across a range of sectors.

Franchise your business
We work with brands of all shapes and sizes to provide strategic roadmaps, and to create all of the necessary documentation to start your Franchising journey. A highly intensive and exciting programme, and one where we get firmly under the skin of your business to build a Franchise network that truly represents you.
Working with emerging and mature Franchisors, we take on the role of mentor helping to set targets, provide strategic insight and solve problems. We are there on demand each month to deal with whatever the Franchising world throws at you.
Franchise recruitment planning
Franchising is highly competitive and finding Franchises is for most networks, their hardest and enduring challenge. We work with our clients to build their brand USP and competitive edge, to create a fully aligned plan to generate leads, and most crucially to ensure that they are handled correctly to become completed sales.
For nearly 20 years now, Franchising brands globally has been at the heart of what Andrew has done. We are really proud to have taken brands into more than 20 countries, and to have helped overseas brands to enter the UK market.
Sadly, many Franchisors try to “go global” and fail. In most cases this is not because their concept or brand was flawed, more through failing to understand the complexity and demands they would face. We’ve exceptional experience in helping Franchise networks to either take their first steps into Franchising overseas, or to reboot a failing international strategy and regain control of their brand.
