Take your first step towards success
Approximately one in six people experience foot pain or related problems during the course of their life. Gareth Samuel investigates how the Foot Solutions franchise is giving franchise owners the chance to change lives and make their fortune.
The Foot Solutions franchise, which has been in operation for more than 15 years, now has over 200 locations worldwide, spanning 16 different countries.
While the business is a retail brand, the service that Foot Solutions provides is much more comprehensive than many of their rivals.
Medically, the benefits of the Foot Solutions service are evident – doctors are increasingly refering their patients with ailments like diabetes, obesity and Foot, knee and back pain to the brand.
Foot Solutions give their customers an individual foot consultation, so that each and every customer has their feet examined. This measurement is then used to find the right combination of shoe and innersoles to fit the customer precisely. For Waterford franchise owner, Peter Jones, the franchise has already paid dividends: “I already knew about the concept of franchising from an MBT (specialist shoe brand) representative that used to visit my store. I found the idea of franchising reassuring because the support and proven business model were already in place.
“I have a natural and genuine interest in the field so when the MBT rep also told me about the Foot Solutions franchise opportunity, I was instantly drawn in. It also proved to be a much better idea than uprooting everything to move to Australia.”
One of the main draws of a Foot Solutions franchise is the customer retention that franchise owners frequently enjoy – the firm is one of the leading brands in the specialist footwear market.
Ideally, a Foot Solutions franchise owner is someone with entrepreneurial flair who is looking for a new challenge. Having business or corporate experience is also a major bonus for prospective investors.
The brand is currently enjoying a surge in popularity as more and more people wake up to the idea of individualised, more comfortable footwear, in accordance with the instruction of their trusted GP. Investing in a Foot Solutions franchise may be the perfect way for you to help people in your community and achieve a more opulent future.
