The RDS Global Solutions Franchise Opportunity:

A home-based business with no restrictions!

RDS they have a completely non-geographical franchise offering, meaning you can literally sell throughout the whole of the UK on a first come first serve basis. They do however encourage you begin by winning customers locally, again to keep costs to a minimum.
The business can be run from home, in fact in the early days this is exactly what the majority of franchisees do in order to keep overheads to a manageable level. Where possible RDS Global Solutions also encourage family members to participate in your new franchise venture.
