A franchise is the opportunity to buy your own territory-based business, that is part of a network of other franchises and based on an already successful business model and brand.
We launched our Tatty Bumpkin franchise in 2008 after trialling and perfecting our class concept since we started in 2004. A franchise is scaleable and saleable. It differs from teaching as you will grow a team at the same time as growing your business.
We are accredited by the British Franchise Association (bfa) who regulate and promote ethical franchising practices in the UK.
