Many people buy a franchise so that they can become their own boss, with the freedom to manage their own timetable, workload and career.
Many people buy a franchise so that they can become their own boss, with the freedom to manage their own timetable, workload and career. Becoming a franchise owner can be fantastic when you are able to trust your chosen sector will remain relevant and your business model to deliver returns.
How do you do that? A good starting point is to consider the things that people will always need, such as food and a place to live.
So if you’re looking for longevity, the right business in the property market could be your key to success. It fluctuates, it peaks and it dips but one thing is for sure, the property market will exist for as long as we all need places to live and work. X-Press Legal Services is a franchise that produces property searches and reports that are integral to every single property transaction, be it purchase, sale, repossession or remortgages. Whatever the property market is doing, X-Press Legal franchise owners are in demand providing this important data to over 500 conveyancing solicitors.
You can start an X-Press Legal franchise from your own home, with low set up costs and no industry experience required. Husband and wife team, founders Lynne Lister and Dave Lister set up X-Press Legal Services 21 years ago and still manage their own territory, as well as heading up the national network, so they are uniquely positioned to advise on every aspect of the business. Their approach works; over half of X-Press Legal’s current franchise owners have been with them since year one.
Franchise owners have come from all walks of life. For example, Russell Brown, this year’s Franchisee of the Year, is a former project engineer and international sales manager. James and Liz Ferguson, hail from corporate backgrounds as a trading systems operations manager and logistics manager respectively, while Tom Mannion, began his franchise just a couple of years after completing an undergraduate degree in classics.
If you are ambitious, tech-savvy and have meticulous attention to detail, you can benefit from a friendly, approachable network with on-going training and mentoring to enable your success. You will also be encouraged to reach out to existing franchise owners to hear about their experiences.
