Why not let the Royal Bank be a part of your franchise?

At the Royal Bank, we recognise that franchising is a unique way of operating a business. That's why we have established a UK network of dedicated Franchise Development Managers, so that no matter where you are based, you will always receive the same excellent standard of specialist help. 

Our Franchise Development Managers :

  • provide financial advice and support geared to the specific needs of individual franchise businesses
  • are typically in their role for a minimum of 3 years, giving you a consistent point of contact
  • are willing to visit you at a time and location of your choice
  • are dedicated to the franchise market
  • will work with you to deliver a financial package tailored to your specific requirements

Our Franchise Development Managers are an integral part of the franchise industry as they regularly present at seminars held by franchisors and the Which Franchise web site around the country.

Tailored Banking Solutions

In addition to the typical day-to-day banking services you may require, we can provide a comprehensive range of financial services. Our nation-wide network of dedicated Franchise Development Managers will work with you to build a financial package tailored to the specific needs of your business and will advise you on key financial issues relating to franchising.

Franchising Information

Why not have a look at the Royal Bank's franchising literature, including :

  • How to Evaluate a Franchise - written by Martin Mendelsohn, the leading franchise lawyer, this book is an excellent guide for anyone who is interested in buying a franchise. It normally retails at £5.50, but is available from The Royal Bank of Scotland FREE of charge
  • A FREE Business Planning CD ROM to help you develop your business plan
  • FREE Franchising information pack - for those thinking of buying a franchise, or franchising their business. This pack provides an overview of franchising and includes a checklist of questions for potential franchisees to consider before signing up to a franchise

For a copy of any of our literature, or to arrange to talk with one of our franchising specialists, contact us by: phone - 0800 521 607 

Calls may be recorded. 

Whether you are a franchisee or a franchisor, you should always investigate and be aware of the risks involved in any business project. Independent legal and accountancy advise is essential. The role of our Franchising Department is to help you with information on the steps to take when making your franchise plans. Our Franchise Development Managers can assist with funding, but any lending decision by the Bank in respect of assisting in the acquisition of a particular franchise must not be regarded as a representation or warranty as to the merits of that franchise as a business investment. The Bank will not recommend a particular franchise or advise on the merits of a specific business venture. The Bank does not give any representation or warranties in respect of the financial standing of the franchisor.
