Starting a business from scratch can be daunting, especially in a specialised field like early years education. That’s why many professionals are choosing to join franchises, leveraging established frameworks and support systems to achieve success. At The Early Years Company (TEYC), we have seen first-hand how joining a franchise can transform careers and lives.

Why We Chose To Offer The Franchise Path

When we founded The Early Years Company, our mission was clear: to support early years leaders and their teams through coaching and training. We wanted to attract like-minded professionals who were passionate about sharing their experiences and making a difference in the early years sector. Joining our franchise allowed us to create a network of dedicated individuals who share our vision and values.

The Key Benefits of Joining a Franchise

Over the past four years, we’ve experienced numerous benefits from offering a franchise, and we believe these advantages can significantly impact anyone considering this path:

· Brand Recognition: Being part of an established brand like TEYC gives you instant credibility and trust. Our name is synonymous with quality and excellence in early years coaching and training.

· Support from Head Office: Our franchisees benefit from comprehensive support from our head office. This includes everything from compliance and training to sales and marketing support, ensuring you're never alone in your journey.

· A Cheerleading Team: One of the most uplifting aspects of being part of a franchise is the sense of community. You have a team of people cheering you on, offering advice, and sharing in your successes and challenges.

· Uncapped Potential Earnings: Franchising offers the potential for significant financial rewards. With the right effort and dedication, the earning potential is unlimited.

Franchise Success Rates and Industry Growth

The franchise model has proven to be remarkably successful. According to data from Time4You Franchise, franchises have a success rate of approximately 90% compared to 15% for independent businesses. This significantly higher success rate is attributed to the comprehensive support and established business models that franchises offer.

The UK franchise industry is also a thriving sector. reports that the franchise industry contributes over £17 billion to the UK economy annually and employs over 710,000 people. This growth demonstrates the robust nature of franchising and its ability to adapt to various market conditions.

At TEYC, we provide our franchisees with a wealth of resources to help them thrive. This includes ongoing sales and marketing support, business growth strategies, and continuous training and development. These resources are designed to ensure that our franchisees are equipped with the tools and knowledge they need to succeed.

Advice for Aspiring Franchisees

If you’re considering joining a franchise, my advice is simple: don’t be afraid to jump in and take a chance on yourself. This is a wonderful opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of children and to achieve personal and professional fulfilment. The support and community you’ll find within a franchise like TEYC can be the catalyst for your success.
