Elite Franchise’s new 'Top 100 Franchises' league table compares franchises on longevity, financial performance, size of network, growth, contribution (to the community and franchising as a whole), support, innovation and future plans.

Commenting on their position in the league table franchise director Louise said:
"For a relatively small and young franchise, we are very happy with our position of 54th in this new league table by Elite Franchise. We are also delighted to be amongst such great company, with nationally recognised brands surrounding us on either side. We hope this league table gives prospective franchisees a starting place for their research into buying a franchise but would encourage them to do plenty of independent research before making any kind of choice; what may rank highly on paper may not be the right franchise for you."

What Our Franchisees Say

WILKINS CHIMNEY SWEEP have been very supportive in providing both practical training, and also advice on how to run a business with accounting and tax information.


I liked the idea of working for myself doing something more hands on than I had been used to as an ex-surveyor. Franchising gave me professional backup, training and an established name to use.
