All about funding

What you need to know:

  • We have a long-standing arrangement with Lloyds TSB and HSBC, who understand our business well
  • The majority of the loan can be funded through a bank loan with favourable funding terms

What are my running costs?

These are typical monthly costs. Actual costs may vary from this example.

  • Rent £2,000
  • Rates £700
  • Payroll £8,000
  • Overheads £2,500
  • Leightons royalty fee £2,000
  • Leightons marketing fee £500
  • Leightons Finance & IT fee £500
  • Debt Repayment £500

What might my returns forecast be?

An accurate return can only be gauged against the purchase value but, in the example as seen in the “Running Costs” section above, cash flow (before debt repayment) might range from £30,000 to £50,000 per year. However, as this is only an example, it could be more, or it could be less.

How long is the franchise term?

Normally 5 or 10 years.
