My name’s Len Rainford. Having been involved in franchising for over 30 years I have experienced it from every angle and every aspect.

I have been a Franchise Manager for two international companies, worked as a Franchise Consultant for several major brands and have been both a Franchisee and a Franchisor. I have also started, ran, and sold four businesses, all in different sectors, the last of which I built into a national brand through franchising.

Franchising is a complex business and mistakes can prove very costly, as I have seen all too often. As a result I have developed various strategies covering every aspect of franchising, and if implemented will guarantee results, a return on investment, success and happiness.

My aim is to share my passion for franchising, pass on the knowledge and experience that I have gained over the years, help others to achieve their goals, and raise the profile of franchising in the UK.

Being an Entrepreneur in Residence at Lancaster University, I am involved in various projects and it is one of only a few universities in the UK that has a franchise module.
