Louise Y Harris QFP

Founder, Franchise Projects

Louise has been in franchising since 2006, initially as a franchisee. In 2010, she became a franchisor, launching the award-winning Wilkins Chimney Sweep franchise which was sold in 2019. She is a fierce advocate for ethical business-format franchising and has served in on the board of the British Franchise Association, and several committees and is a Qualified Franchise Professional (QFP)

Louise now runs Franchise Projects, primarily delivering franchise operations manuals in an energised format, and completing critical tasks for franchised businesses that help them deliver to ethical franchise standards. She is a contributor to Elite Franchise on a regular basis.

Louise was the co-chair of EWIF (Encouraging Women into Franchising) and was part of their judging team for the annual EWIF Awards.

Her life prior to franchising was as Operations Director in a serviced office business, and previously business training with KLM Airlines.
