For an owner/investor, this industry can offer you unlimited opportunities to make a truly impressive return, but if you want to take a more hands-on approach, it can also offer you a varied and creative career. No two days at any one of our branches are the same.

The wide range of products that we supply on top of the huge list of materials, technologies, techniques and designs that we work with on a daily basis, you will certainly be kept busy!

What do you get as a Franchisee?

  • Track Record of Success – We have a developed a method of doing business that works well and produces successful results.
  • Strong Brand –One of the biggest advantages of franchising is that the company is building a brand on a regional or national basis that should have value in the eyes of customers you’re trying to attract.
  • Training Programme – We have a training programme designed to bring you up to speed on the most successful methods to run the business. We have reference materials to assist you in dealing with whatever comes up while you’re running your business.
  • Ongoing Operational Support – We have staff dedicated to providing ongoing assistance to franchisees. You’re not alone when you’re building and running your business, and you can always call on experienced people when you hit a rough spot or want to share new ideas for growing the business.
  • Marketing Assistance – We will offer you marketing assistance to provide you with proven tools and strategies for attracting and retaining customers.
  • Purchasing Power – As a franchise you can take advantage of the buying power of the entire system to negotiate prices for everything you need at significantly lower levels than you could achieve as an independent operator.
  • Risk Avoidance – The biggest reason to buy a franchise is that, if you’re smart, it will help you avoid much of the risk of starting a new business.

Earning Potential

It is important to emphasise that the above figures are projections provided for the purpose of illustration and are not intended to be a statement, representation, warranty or guarantee of individual franchisee earnings. It is essential that (prior to entering into the franchise) you satisfy yourself of the value of the investment you intend to make in terms of both time and money.


Investing £25k into new franchisee’s businesses making the start-up costs for establishing your own Switch Electrical significantly more affordable. This, along with supplier discounts we’ve negotiated, means that start-up costs are just £55k + working capital.

The franchise fee, for a territory licence of ten years, is £25,000 and is included within the total capital requirement and costs breakdown found within our prospectus. Each month a management service charge fee of 5% of your turnover and a £500 national promotional fund levy are payable.
