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.

As an Entrepreneur in Residence at Lancaster University, I am involved in various projects including franchising.

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.

Working in collaboration with a team of consultants who are all specialists in their field, The Franchise Specialist can help you to grow your business and achieve your goals.


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, in particular our “Seven Step Strategy”. if implemented fully this will ensure results, a return on investment, success and happiness.
