Next Steps

Starting a franchise is a big commitment, one not to be taken lightly. We want you to make an informed decision about whether becoming a Poppies franchisee is the right thing for you (and your family) to do, so you can expect complete transparency from us throughout your research.

While you’re finding out more about us, we’ll be looking to do the same about you. As an ethical franchisor, we only award franchises to people we think will be successful as a Poppies franchisee – it has to be a joint decision that’s right for both of us.

If you think Poppies could be the right fit for you, it’s time to take your research further.

  1. A little about you
    Request a brochure and read more about this opportunity
  2. Initial call
    Speak with Chris, get answers to your early questions, learn more about the business. Email or call to arrange a time to chat.  Alternatively you can complete this form and we’ll call you back.
  3. Discovery Den
    We’ll give you access to a secure area of the site called the Discovery Den, which contains a wide range of additional materials that will help you understand our business in more depth including:
    More detailed financial projections
    Staff & recruitment information
    Individual territory info
    A questionnaire: Would you make a good franchisee?
  4. Putting faces to names
    We’ll arrange a convenient time for an informal and informative chat on the telephone, by Skype Zoom or FaceTime. Think of it as a ‘get to know each other’ session where both parties can assess the opportunity to work together. At this meeting we will also discuss the franchise territories available near to you and the demographics of these areas.
  5. Due diligence
    If both parties want to proceed further, and subject to signing a non-disclosure agreement, we will provide you with a copy of the Franchise Agreement and financial model so that you (and your advisors) can fully assess the commercial viability of the business.
  6. See the business for yourself
    We’ll arrange for you to speak to existing franchisees and visit an existing office to see a Poppies in action, and learn about life in the network first-hand from the people who are already in it.
  7. Decision time
    At this stage it’s time for you to make an informed decision. We’ll provide you with any information that you need to decide if this is the right business opportunity for you and if we both think that it is, we can discuss and agree your franchise area and training dates.
  8. Offer made
    We will issue you with a formal franchise offer which will be linked to your agreed franchise territory and potential training dates.
  9. Financial Modelling
    We’ll support you to develop the base financial model into a personalised business plan and if you need to raise finance for the business, we can provide you with support in this area.
  10. Confirm dates
    As soon as your business finance is in place, we will confirm your training dates and start to make plans for your business launch and marketing plan. We will also arrange for your actual franchise agreement to be drafted and sent to you.
  11. Signed and sealed
    Fourteen days prior to the commencement of training you must have signed the Franchise Agreement and paid the initial Franchise Fee and the Equipment Package Fee as agreed.
  12. Go!
    The final step is to attend the induction training, following which you can begin trading. Now the hard work really starts!Please note it can take 3-4 months from your initial enquiry to get to the business commencement stage. The time taken is critical to ensure that both parties are committed to the process and make the right choices.

" It really has changed my life. It beats sitting on the M6 and feeling stressed about going to work – I’ve achieved a great work-life balance that Chris originally promised. Being a franchisee has made a huge impact and I’m kicking myself for not making the change a long time ago! If you’re anything like me, just go for it – don’t be frightened. It’s not easy, but nothing worth doing ever is. The satisfaction and rewarding feeling that you’ll receive will make it all worth it. I promise! "
