What Our Franchisees Say

I would definitely recommend Premier and franchising to people looking for a business. I really enjoy it. Being my own boss, the money, working in sport and being a role model for children in the area.Gareth Simpson, franchisee in Cambridge and Newmarket

I never dreamt I would do the things I now do as daily routines, and couldn't see myself being in this position without the guidance and support I have received.Danny Bloomfield, Franchisee for Suffolk, Norfolk and Kent


Our objectives are to continue to grow the business and create a strong and outstanding workforce. I would recommend this opportunity to anyone, there is a great support network using a tried and tested model made successful by many franchisees with a wealth of experience plus Premier Sport are constantly investing to develop our businesses and brand.Gavin Winter, Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent
