New Office For Franchise Consultancy

Tuesday, March 04, 2008

Norwich-based Franchise Development Services (FDS) has signed an agreement to open a new office in Surrey to service the South East of England.

The FDS regional franchise for the South East of England has been acquired by Malcolm Porter, who was formerly head of training and development at Thomson Directories.

FDS is a franchise consultancy and publications group with offices already established in the South West, the Midlands and the North, as well as international associates operating in Europe and the Middle East.

The company provides advice and guidance to companies seeking to expand nationally and internationally via franchising; publishes The Franchise Magazine and The Irish Franchise Magazine; and maintains a number of franchise websites including

FDS managing director Roy Seaman said: "The South East region has seen considerable expansion in franchise activity over the past five years with well over 100 franchisors headquartered in Surrey, Kent and Sussex.

"The new office will relieve the pressure of servicing the market from our head office in Norwich, and increase the volume of consultancy and advertising revenue from the region by establishing closer relationships with clients based there." Mr Porter said: "Franchising presents a fantastic opportunity to individuals wanting to set-up their business in a way that provides support, a structured business format as well as significantly increasing your chance of operating a successful and profitable business.

"I first became aware of the FDS opportunity through The Franchise Magazine and felt that the company offered me the best opportunity to utilise my existing skills as well as becoming involved in a growing industry that I had some experience in."
