From mobile delights to mobility scooters, the franchising sector never fails to surprise. There truly is a franchise for everyone. Don’t believe us? Well check out these newbies on the UK franchise scene

The new and the bold franchises on the bloc

Whether you’re looking for a new franchise opportunity or just want to know what the competition looks like, we’ve got you covered with our latest list of new UK franchises. 

Camile Thai

People like the convenience of having food delivered straight to their door. That’s why franchises like Really Awesome Coffee and scaleups like Just Eat have become tremendously popular in recent years. Now, get ready for another franchise to leverage Britons’ propensity for home-delivered snacks – Camile Thai. Born in Dublin in 2010, this franchisor delivers succulent Thai dishes to customers’ doors. Having begun to expand internationally from London, this Irish franchisor is now looking for fantastic franchisees ready to commit themselves to making the business a success in the UK. With its dedication to using natural ingredients, being ethical and promoting wellbeing by organising things like yoga classes, this is a delicious and guilt-free opportunity that deserves a second serving. 

Heights Farm Premium Pet Foods

This franchisor is taking the lead in the pet food space, having unleashed itself upon the market in 2009 after founder Stephen Ward’s own dog developed allergies to some foods. Now he’s passionate about ensuring other pet owners can easily get their four-legged friends the grub they deserve. With Heights Farm Premium Pet Foods, he aimed to do just that. Now he’s searching for equally enthusiastic people to join the franchise network he launched in 2017. “We’re looking for enthusiastic, sociable and warm-hearted people with the ambition and self-motivation to grow a successful business,” Ward said about the expansion. No reason to paws fur effect as looking into this franchise certainly doesn’t mean animal friends are barking up the wrong tree. 

Miami Burger 

Who doesn’t love a good burger? Seizing the opportunity to leverage the UK’s increasing interest in healthy living and animal rights, Miami Burger has launched its first super-healthy fast food restaurant in Reading. More importantly, all succulent servings are entirely guilt-free as each patty is based on soy. Plant-based cuisine chef Tom Halford was headhunted to help refine the first UK menu, having previously worked at Michelin-starred restaurants. “Quality plant-based food is easy to find in the biggest cities but what about everywhere else?” says Halford. “Miami Burger aims to change this situation.” And the vegan eatery isn’t going to be alone. The company is now cooking up something big and looking to grow to over 100 franchisees in the next five years. 

Pop! Studios

Oh snap! Pop! Studios is taking the photoshoot experience to the next level. Far from just snapping a great shot, this franchisor also retouches the picture to give it a unique Hollywood-esque shimmer, making photos indistinguishable from the posters of big screen movies. Launched in 2014, Pop! Studios offers several packages – from fairytale forests and space battles to cosplay creations and superhero adventures. Founder Wendy Mackney decided to franchise in October 2018 and is now seeking her first franchisee to join the business after the debut concept store proved a huge success. In the next five years the company plans to open a few more in the UK before taking the franchise abroad. Big smiles everybody. Say cheese! 

Tan & Deliver 

This franchise is absolutely radiating. Sunbed supplier Tan & Deliver was established in 2008, although it does offer services in its physical stores as well. In the decade since opening, the company perfected the model and now wants to bring that special lustre to new franchisees’ lives as people have begun to reach out from across the country. Having decided to franchise in January 2019, the franchisor already had two new franchisees signed up by the end of of February. However, it won’t stop there. In fact, the franchisor hopes to have over 150 franchisees in the next five years. Are you looking to catch a spot of vitamin D and are you passionate about beauty? Then this franchise opportunity might be shining a light just for you. 

Brush Party

Ever fancied getting in touch with your creative side or at least trying something new with friends on a night out? That’s exactly what Brush Party provides. Since hosting its first party in July 2016, the company has now grown to run over 400 events every year. During these events, the attendees get advice on how to paint, receive inspiration, sip some bubbles and walk away with their own one-of-a-kind artwork. However, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that the company is now looking for its first round of franchisees to join it as Brush Party was designed to be franchised from the get-go. The franchisor sold its first franchise in September 2018 and plans to recruit 30 franchisees per year over the next five years. So, if you’re looking for a franchise that brings out your true colours, this might be the opportunity for you.

Easy Living Mobility 

Easy Living Mobility is all about raising the standard of living for those with a limited range of motion. Launched in 2001, the company’s eight stores now offer a huge selection that includes wheelchairs, mobility scooters, shoes, bathroom appliances, armchairs, bedroom aids and stairlifts. But the company isn’t stopping there. The business was recently franchised and received its bfa accreditation in November 2018. Now it’s hunting for the right franchisees to join its blossoming new network.
