Your own exclusive territory.

Becoming a franchisee with Dolly Char means you have an exclusive territory to operate within. These radius’s are decided on population and postcodes meaning everyone has the same size of population area to work within. Unlike many franchise organisations, we do not use geographical areas.

Geographical areas are not accurate by size as 20 miles in a city will have a much more dense population than 20 miles in rural England. Our radius criteria will mean you receive the same opportunity as everyone else across the country.

We ensure you are given the chance to reach X amount of people who meet our strict criteria. These are people with an income upwards £30,000, to name just one measurement. With Dolly Char you are buying the rights to run your business in an exclusive territory.

What are the benefits of home based work?

I feel that I am amongst the lucky small category of people who run their own business and work remotely or home based. Some of the personal benefits of working out of my home in my eyes are as follows:- Not having to rush around in the morning to get out the house in time to clock in! Within reason, I work when I want to and not when I am told to! However, it must be noted that it has taken a few years of hard graft to get to this point. I now get the opportunity to see my family grow up and even more so me been a bigger part of their life’s. I have time to help out and do other things around the house. My overheads are a lot lower than working from an outside office and having rent and business rates to find on a monthly basis.

To be honest working from home does not feel like an ordinary job, more like an hobby I would say, apart from obviously the business must be kept on top of!

What is a franchise marketing levy?

It is a common practise within franchising for franchisors to charge their franchisees a standard ongoing fee as a contribution towards or in some cases to finance entirely some form of central advertising or marketing fund appropriate to the needs and idiosyncrasies of that particular franchise business. Usually a franchisor will keep this fund separate and will produce yearly accounts to show where this money is getting used and at any time all of his franchisees as a right to ask to view these figures. The fund is not for the franchisor merely for the franchise businesses ongoing marketing. Franchisees although in most franchise businesses are made aware that most if not all local advertising and marketing is still down to them, the marketing levy is more for national advertising, marketing and brand building.

What is franchise intellectual property?

The licensed use of the Franchisors intellectual property is part of all franchise systems. Intellectual property covers know how of the operational side of the franchisors business, any IT involved within the business, the accounts and admin side of the business and the use of any trademarks and trade names belonging to the Franchisors business. The franchisor retains ownership of the intellectual property always and as the network of franchises grows, the value of the intellectual property and brand grows accordingly with it.

What is franchising?

Franchising (from the French for honesty or freedom) is a method of doing business wherein a franchisor licenses trademarks and tried and proven methods of doing business to a franchisee in exchange for a recurring payment, and usually a percentage piece of gross sales or gross profits as well as the annual fees. Various tangibles and intangibles such as national or international advertising, training, and other support services are commonly made available by the franchisor, and may indeed be required by the franchisor, which generally requires audited books, and may subject the franchisee or the outlet to periodic and surprise spot checks. Failure of such tests typically involve non-renewal or cancellation of franchise rights. A business operated under a franchise arrangement is often called a chain store, franchise outlet, or simply franchise
