Whether you’re about to embark on the franchise journey or are a well-established franchise, having a robust franchise insurance proposition in place is essential. Franchising your business model means opening your business up to other people, potentially putting the company and its reputation at risk. Despite this risk the rewards for successfully franchising can be phenomenal and a franchise insurance package can sit in the background protecting you and your franchisees.

What’s in it for me as a franchisor?
Arranging your insurance programme through an award-winning insurance broker will provide peace of mind that all franchisees participating in the franchise insurance programme are covered to the right level. By the very essence of franchising your business you are building the volume of businesses operating under your brand and therefore increasing your buying power. With increased buying power comes options: option to generate income for yourself, option to reduce premiums for your franchisees, or option to accrue a fund to disperse as you see fit. The franchise sector is a really exciting and attractive sector for insurance providers and one we are keen to work with partners to explore in more detail.
No, there is no need to make it mandatory, however you need to be sure that all franchisees are protecting your business and brand by having the right insurance in place.
Yes, we can cater for all insurances from mandatory motor insurance right up to niche products such as credit insurance.
All our insurance policies are for 12 months, there would be no contractual agreements other than the insurance policy.
We have worked with franchises for over 15 years. We have large established franchises within our client bank as well as brand new start up franchises, so we can appreciate the business risks each franchise faces.
There is no minimum number, if you have not yet franchised your business and plan to do so in the future we can structure an insurance plan that takes this into account.
If you have employees or motor vehicles then insurance is legally required. Other covers are optional and it’s your choice if you insure your franchise for these.
