I was looking for a franchise business opportunity but was unsure of which direction I should take. John contacted me, reviewed my CV and work history, took time to understand what made me tick and researched the franchise market on my behalf to find the perfect match for me.

I was extremely impressed with John’s professionalism and industry knowledge, the biggest compliment I can give is that, should you be in the market for either a franchise and or other recruitment service ‘I would have no hesitation in recommending John to provide you with a first class service.’

Ray Murphy MBA, FCIM (CNA International)

I worked with John Patterson, Franchise Talent, in gaining an understanding of potential franchises that would be suitable for my skills, qualifications and experience.

John was very thorough and professional in how we approached this exercise and I felt confident in his understanding of the franchise market.

He gave me some excellent advice which in the end led me to choose a business model which was an excellent fit and ticked all my boxes.

I would not hesitate in recommending John to anyone interested in this area.

Just a quick line to thank Mike and the team at Franchise Talent for supporting me through the challenges I faced when moving from employment to self-employment and working as a partner with a well-known franchise brand. With so much to look at and the start up support required life would have been so much difficult without becoming part of their career mentoring program and it was all free advice from independents that offered good quality choice. Once again thank you, Im now doing something I should have done 10 years ago – running my own business.

John Craven, Litchfield

Having worked with Mike over the last 2 years running the recruitment of my business I have found him to be 100% reliable. His experience of the industry is second to none having himself both been a franchisee and a franchisor. Working with the team at Franchise Talent has enabled me concentrate on looking after my franchisees knowing I have a reliable partner to introduce new prospects looking to become business owners for the Dolly Char Brand.

Keep up the good work Mike.

Robin Harrison, MD Dolly Char LTD

Mike has been very helpful in guiding me through the franchise options available. He was able to offer considerable industry expertise and also was able to draw on his own knowledge as a franchisee about the reality of some of the options available and what would be suitable for me given my own skills and experience. This was invaluable in making my final choice of franchise.
