Talk to Rangewell - the business finance experts

Would a franchise help you make the most of your pharmacy? At Rangewell, we can help provide the funding you need.

At Rangewell we recognise your professional status, and we work harder to find you better solutions - which can include 100% finance for many of your needs.

The major franchised brands have a position on the high street that can seem impossible for you to compete with as a independent chemist. That’s why the best tactic might be for you to join them as a franchisee

Are you ready to run a franchised pharmacy? The major high street chains are a formidable challenge for any independent chemist.

The big name franchises having huge buying power, and powerful marketing, which brings in customers who might walk past your independent chemist shop. But rather than seeing them as a threat, you could take advantage of their success. Running your own franchised pharmacy and chemist shop could be the best way to make the most of your pharmaceutical skills, and the full potential of high street retailing. 

With a nationwide group and professional marketing behind you, you can look forward an increase in footfall and profitable business.

The costs of franchising

Buying a franchise will require a major investment. The precise costs involved will vary - you need to find what is on offer from the various franchisors, and the payment they will expect. Most will include a substantial initial franchise fee and expect you to commit to substantial investment to bring your practice in line with their branding and provide the appropriate level of equipment and facilities. There may be a monthly fee and additional expenses to consider once you are up and running also.

It makes sound business sense - but many business lenders, such as banks, may not be able to help as your business is technically a start-up and lacking a business history.

This means that a specialised Franchise Loan package may be essential. At Rangewell, we can help you find the funding you need with a specialised Franchise Loan package.
