It has indeed been a pleasure working with you and the insight has been essential to our future growth and I look forward to our continued journey together.

Brian Gregory - CeX Senior International Franchising Development Manager

We have worked with The Franchising Centre from our inception in 2002 where they helped us form our UK franchisor business model.

Since then Farrah has worked with us to enter Ireland five years ago which we did very successfully and over the last year she has worked closely with us on our greater international expansion into Canada, Netherlands, Germany and New Zealand.

Farrah has extensive experience, I believe second to none, and a highly professional network of country based specialist franchise consultants with whom she works but manages closely for the benefit of her clients; always her priority.

Most importantly for me Farrah does not tell you what you want to hear but rather what you need to hear; and she does it well!

I regard myself as a work alcoholic and Duracell Bunny; Farrah puts me to shame.

Farrah is recognized in the franchise industry as the leading expert in her field and is highly respected for her thorough knowledge.

We first became aware of the International Franchising Centre at the Franchise Exhibition at London’s Olympia and were recommended them by our bank – HSBC. I first met Farrah Rose – their international franchising Director – on the stand there, and from that initial discussion, I knew I had found the source of advice and support we had been looking for. As a small company with global aspirations and a great product, we needed expert, no-nonsense advice and guidance to point us in the right direction. Over the course of a number of phone calls and then a whole day with Farrah at our offices, we were able to plan and analyse our various options with far greater clarity and confidence than would otherwise have been the case. The investment in Farrah’s time at this stage was worth every penny and will in the long run no doubt save us an immense amount of time and effort and has undoubtedly helped to de-risk what is an inherently risky venture. I have no doubt that Farrah represents the very best in franchising consultancy and has been a real pleasure to work with and to get to know. I recommend the International Franchising Centre wholeheartedly.

The International Franchising Centre’s brief was to help us assess the viability of franchising our upmarket retail concept in International markets...I found working with you an educational, refreshing and most enjoyable experience

Farrah’s indepth knowledge and experience of international franchising not only highlighted all the elements of international franchising we needed to consider but also acted as a catalyst to help us develop our long term international strategy

We are confident we would not have been able to be in the same position as we are today if it was not for the collaboration with Iain Martin. His integrity, his knowledge in franchising, his character and trust level is a rare combination in a person. I will certainly recommend The International Franchising Centre’s services to other franchisors

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Jubilee International Ltd, I am writing to formally thank The International Franchising Centre, and yourself in particular, for your expert guidance and superb handling of the process which has cumulated in the signing of our first franchise agreement in India.

You and your team have brought to a successful close years of hard work and your professionalism has resulted in our agreement with a serious local franchisee with whom we hope to develop the CafÈ Jubilee brand all over the sub-continent. Naturally, your collaboration with Franchise India has been indispensable in the successful outcome of this venture.

This does not mean the road has come to an end – we appreciate that it is just the start of a much longer road, but a start nevertheless, and one which we would have never achieved without you. Thank you once again. We look forward to the future with courage and enthusiasm and augur that our collaboration will flourish and keep going from strength to strength.

Farrah worked with us to develop our international franchise strategy with a view to taking our franchise concept overseas and was a truly first class consultant who worked with us to tight deadlines to deliver a high quality master license proposition for prospective master licensees. Farrah's knowledge of the industry and connections with the movers and shakers throughout the works are second to none. She is also great fun to work with and a consummate professional.
