Lime Licensing Group’s Yorkshire regional office is based just outside Ilkley in West Yorkshire and managed by ex Lloyds Bank Senior Product Manager Richard Fisher.
Having completed his Certified Franchising Professional certificate Rich has now joined Lime’s advisory team with responsibility for Yorkshire and the North East.
We’re not just franchise consultants in Yorkshire though as this office covers all of Humberside, East & South Yorkshire, Durham, Teesside, Newcastle and Tyneside.
Richard is Lime’s newest appointment. He joined us after a highly successful career in retail banking. Across various banks he’s landed multi-million-pound product, pricing and sales innovations. A reputation for business planning to a very high standard, satisfying banking execs and auditors such as KPMG & Deloitte. Then being hands on as part of the team to deliver on expectations. In career breaks along the way he launched a Weight loss & Quit Smoking clinic at Harley Street, and a Wedding accessories catalogue business. High standards, growth mindset and success through people are his key considerations.
One of Richard’s recent previous posts was with Lloyds Bank who are positioned as an experienced franchise specialist lender. Lime itself is a franchisor with a small group of franchised regional offices covering each corner of the UK and Rich manages this region.
“I appreciate that there are many franchise consultants in Yorkshire and the North East of England that you could choose from. However, myself and my colleagues have proven expertise in setting up new franchise brands. Lime’s team has an enviable background recruiting franchisees and we can do the same for you”. Rich Fisher.
Richard’s daughter Carys has also recently joined this regional office. Carys is the youngest member of our team has recently joined on an accelerated development programme. She brings with her a keen eye & knowledge of the latest trends particularly in the Gen Z space. Tuning in to these customers, their social media habits and expectations offers huge growth opportunities which is just one of the areas Carys is focusing on.
Lime’s team also carry out local meetings with prospective franchise owners up and down the country and since Covid are often found on Zoom, Teams, Google Meets, Skype and the other online meeting portals!
Franchise Consultants with real-life experience
Many of Lime’s clients have become market-leading multi-million-pound brands. This is as a result of our unique practical background running our own franchise companies. Many consultants you’ll meet have never owned a franchise company. Very few have set one up from scratch. The majority of the advice out there is re-hashed from the same textbook. However, one size does not fit all!
Lime’s franchise consultancy is based upon founder Andy Cheetham’s own multi-brand franchise networks and the dozens of successful franchises he and Lime’s team have launched for others. So we know and understand what franchising is like. We have got our hands dirty and taken the same risk as all other new franchisors. No other franchise consultants in Yorkshire or anywhere else in the UK has that level of genuine experience.
“If you’re looking to franchise your business you need expert advice. Through Lime’s CFP training Rich is probably one of the leading experts in the region and will provide practical and valuable advice for your business.” – Andy Cheetham, Founder, Lime Licensing Group
