Franchise Consultancy Spotlight
We believe that franchising is easy to get right, and easy to get wrong too. If you are able to, it’s great to be able to learn from other peoples successes or failures. You can learn as much from what went wrong as what went right. Lime’s consultants have franchising, licensing, self-employment, sales and marketing backgrounds. All things that provide very relevant experience to help our clients. Let’s put the franchise consultancy spotlight on our core advisory team.
Franchise Consultancy Spotlight – Andy Cheetham
Andy, Lime’s MD has 26 years experience since joining the family retail supply business way back in 1994. Through franchising, the company became a nationally franchised success story supplying thousands of retail outlets. Since then Andy has launched and sold four other franchise networks and advised around 70 UK franchisors. Lime Licensing itself even has regional offices run under franchise agreements. So franchising is in his veins! See Andy’s full franchise consultancy spotlight here.

Franchise Consultancy Spotlight -Kevin Thomas
Kevin joined Lime in 2018. Previously Kevin ran one of the highest grossing franchised locations within a well known franchised coffee chain. That experience has allowed him to have a unique affinity with potential franchisees. He’s been there and done it himself. Furthermore, Kevin sold his franchise for a profit so he truly has gone full circle. Now running our South West Office Kevin works with several of our clients and is in the process of designing several new franchise systems to be launched later this year.

It’s not what you know but what you do with what you know that counts.
Of course, that title assumes you know what you are doing in the first place. What works for one brand won’t work for another. We’ve met franchisors who’ve got the most elementary things wrong. No one knows what they don’t know. Experience carries lasting benefits particularly in a contractual environment which is what franchising is.
