Franchise Packages

We have 2 Franchise packages available for you. The main difference between them is one if premises based and one is a mobile business. If you’re looking to start a Sew Confident franchise but aren’t sure you can commit to the full time hours you can opt for the mobile offering and work as little as 25 hours a week. If further down the line you want to commit more time and grow your business you can upgrade your package to the premises package! Get in touch with us using the form below and we can chat you throuigh the best option for you!

Franchise FAQ

A franchise is a “business in a box” and generally includes everything you need to start a business tomorrow. You benefit from the franchisors business experience, market knowledge, business acumen, processes, branding, reputation etc. The chances of success with a franchise are significantly higher than the chances of success with a start up. Franchisors will have years of experience, business contacts, and a lot of lessons learned under their belt that you will immediately have the benefit of! Companies such as Subway and McDonalds tend to spring to mind when talking about franchises but there are a lot of small franchises too.

Sew Confident is the ONLY sewing tuition franchise available in the UK. We are also the biggest sewing tuition company in the UK with multiple sites across Scotland and England. Now is the best time to get involved!

You don’t need business experience to be awarded a Sew Confident Franchise but you do need some sewing experience. Business experience would, of course be advantageous but we train you up on everything from using our accountancy software, to creating a successful marketing campaign, to finding the perfect staff members. We’re also at the end of the phone should you get stuck or be unsure of anything.

The short answer is no. We are very careful with who we consider for our franchises because we want them to succeed, fit in with the existing network and be the perfect brand ambassador for Sew Confident. Before awarding a franchise we have several meetings to ensure you are the right fit for us, have the right attitude and mindset and that we are right for you too.

The franchise fee includes everything you need to open your own Sew Confident franchise tomorrow. This is all your machines, equipment, retail offering*, software, social media accounts, email access, brand license, webpage, furniture*, signage*, and of course extensive training. Training includes, ongoing marketing training, using our booking software, using social media for business, HR training, accountancy practises and of course how to run our Sew Confident classes and create the perfect social environment.

*Full franchise only

The UK average to start up a franchise is £42,200 and we are significantly less than this. Our franchise fee is £15,000 for the Full Franchise and £7500 for the Light Franchise.  You’ll need working capital and might have costs such as premises fit out and legal fees too but we will advise you of all potential costs because we’ve been there done that!  All businesses require investment to start with – we have some finance partners we can put you in touch with if necessary.

It depends what package you go for. Owning your own Full Franchise with the studio is a full time commitment so unless you have a business partner and you are both planning on working part time you would need to work in the Sew Confident franchise full time.  However the Light Franchise which is mobile is more flexible and need around 25 hours a week of your time. If you work more you’ll make more money and can at a later date decide to upgrade to the Full Franchise to further increase your income! Both franchise models are flexible however and can be worked around your family commitments. We pride ourselves on being parent friendly and allowing the flexibility to have a family and a business, why should it be one or the other?
