Nick Carnes

Managing Partner, PartnerWise Franchise.

My commercial career spans over 25 years with the last dozen founding and building PartnerWise Franchise.

Having had a solid foundation through an early operational career in hospitality management, I moved into recruitment gaining both valuable agency and in house experience plus building a business still thriving today. This lead me into the franchising industry giving me great insight and expertise to create and grow what is today PartnerWise Franchise.

As Managing Partner, I lead a small team who specialise in the delivery of interim consulting and business support services specifically tailored for the UK & European Franchise industry. Through this I have been lucky enough to work with some of the leaders of Europe’s most renowned franchise companies, providing advice and hands on support in their desire to rapidly grow their networks. I have also invested in to and sit on the board as a shareholder for a number of franchise brands that wanted a partner including being the master licence holder for a brand wanting to enter the UK market. As a result, I have great empathy as franchisee, franchisor, master and consultant to any business.

I am extremely passionate about the franchise industry, how many lives it can influence and change for the better, the doors it can open and the great people I meet along the way.
