Phonics with Robot Reg was born in January 2016. After just six months we decided to franchise the business, we had created an opportunity to work flexibly around our young children and we recognised an opportunity for other women to do this across the UK whilst growing our own business too. We hired a franchise consultant, the whole process seemed complicated and VERY expensive! Two meetings in, we decided to drop the consultant and figure it out on our own, and we realised it wasn’t too complicated at all! We started the process of franchising in September 2016 just six months after we opened our business and franchised in January 2017 when our business was just a year old.
We are now the leading phonics franchise in the UK. Our franchise success has seen us expand our classes across the UK, we spent a month in Australia franchising our business over there and had the opportunity to take our families with us. We have won multiple awards, and been invited to events and raised money for charity, the best thing is we’ve done all of this whilst being there for our young children.
Last year we decided to add a sister company ‘Counting Kids’ which offers preschool maths classes, we made the brave decision to launch this company as a franchise from the beginning, and so our 6 pilot franchisees prepare to launch their classes this week.
I have helped lots of business owners franchise their businesses, and I am so excited to be launching my first ever franchise course to show you that franchising your business doesn’t need to be difficult.
