Starting out on your own is tough and new entrants to the market need to stay ahead of the competition. Franchising delivers better results at less risk. Therefore, launching a franchise with a prominent brand name such as Busylizzy® that already has a tried-and-tested model that has proved to be highly successful across multiple locations is hugely beneficial to any prospective new business owner.
Also, when you join a franchise, you are working for yourself, but never by yourself. Our years of experience and expertise means that you can enjoy a comprehensive training programme, as well as all the ongoing support of a dedicated Head Office team.
Busylizzy are Associate Members of the British Franchise Association (BFA) who are the voice of ethical franchising in the UK. BFA membership is only open to franchisors who are able to successfully satisfy the strict accreditation criteria and brings with it a highly recognised and valuable credibility and recognition of standards and ethics in franchising.
This achievement acknowledges that Busylizzy have met all the bfa’s criteria, covering: the structure of the business; the terms of contract between franchisor and franchisee; the business model and its success as a franchise.
Far from a tick box exercise, being an Associate Member demonstrates an ongoing commitment to a strict code of ethics and system sustainability. From the recruiting and selecting of franchisees, to working with them to develop their own profitable membership model – the code of ethics reinforces that, as a franchise, Busylizzy offers the support, respect, training and know-how that you need to succeed.
And it’s not just about where Busylizzy is as a business today. It’s about where it’s going too. The bfa accreditation process has been used by Busylizzy to further improve its franchise system. In particular, the process has helped Busylizzy to refine its Franchise Agreement and online operation portal – offering a more defined relationship between head office and the club owners.
Julie Clabby, Busylizzy founder, shares her excitement at joining the bfa family:
“It’s an amazing achievement to be recognised by the bfa and Busylizzy is proud to celebrate our status as a bfa Associate Member. The bfa has some of the world’s best franchises as members. To be included amongst these goes to show that all the hard work we put into developing an effective membership business model, offering a unique proposition and supporting our clubs has paid off.”
