The Costs

Deciding to invest in a franchise is big step, both in terms of the financial costs and in terms of the personal commitment needed to make sure that it works for you. If you decide to join us, you can be assured that you will become part of the Greensleeves family. We have a close relationship with all our franchisees, which is why many of them have been with us for so long!

We are 100% dedicated to supporting our franchisees throughout their journey with us, and that starts right from the moment you get in touch. We are more than happy to discuss every aspect of your investment, and how our relationship will work, at any time.

How much does a Greensleeves franchise cost?

The initial cost for the franchise is £26,950.00 plus VAT.

How long does the agreement last?

The initial franchise agreement lasts for five years, which is renewable subject to certain criteria being met by the franchisee and in agreement with the franchisor.

What is included in this fee?

  • The full franchise licence and right to trade under our brand
  • Training, accreditation, and ongoing support
  • Your own exclusive territory with excellent growth potential
  • All the equipment you need to start your business
  • Access to our bespoke software packages
  • Marketing launch programme and marketing materials

Can I get any financial help with the investment?

Yes. Franchising is recognised by most major banks as being one of the most stable and reliable investments for loaning money. They rightfully see it as a much lower risk than a completely new start-up. Also, Greensleeves has a long and successful trading history that clearly demonstrates the soundness of the investment.

Most banks will view your application for funds very favourably if they come with the backing of an established franchise like ours. A lot depends on your own financial history, of course, but many of our franchisees have managed to secure between 50-70% of the total costs from lenders in the past.

What ongoing costs are there?

Becoming a Greensleeves franchisee is all about being your own boss, and growing a business that you can be proud of, so the majority of the money you make stays with you, of course. However, there are certain costs involved in maintaining our partnership.

Greensleeves charges an ongoing franchise fee of 7% of your gross monthly turnover.

There is also a fee of 2% for our national marketing levy. This goes directly into our marketing efforts to raise and maintain brand awareness on your, and the network’s, behalf.
