HOW TO PARTNER WITH SANDSTONE
We are interested in speaking with people that are looking to change their career direction into the wellbeing sector, or perhaps you’re a business owner that simply wants to invest in a proven model for a yoga studio and operate the business with a manager.
Maybe you’ve started the tough route by setting up your own studio and you’d consider converting it into a Sandstone Yoga & Pilates studio? Whatever your reasoning, we’re here to help you fully understand the Sandstone model and if we could partner to make you part of the family.
Franchising is simply the granting of a license by the Franchisor to the Franchise Owner, which entitles the Franchise Owner to trade under an established brand-name and make use of an entire package of benefits.
Franchising is booming and there are more than 897 very active franchise brands in the UK today. They are successful because:
- The business model is proven to work - all the market research has been done for you
- The brand has been established and already found its position within the market-place
- You are not alone and won’t feel isolated – you have the full support of an established business on-hand whenever you need it
- You have all the benefits of being your own boss but have the back-up of a wider network supporting you all the way
In line with our philosophy of quality and service and the needs of our customers, we offer effective and affordable beauty and laser treatments.
