Join Us in Our Success
Take your first step to being part of a growing success story
It’s great to hear you are looking for a franchise opportunity and we hope you can fulfil your ambition of running your own business with our help.
The mobility industry is a great choice if you are looking at really making a difference to people’s lives by providing them with innovative equipment and advice to help them to live more comfortable and active lives. It’s common knowledge that people in the UK are living longer which is great news for us all. It is predicted that by 2066 people aged over 65 years old will make up 26% of the population, with the over-85 aged bracket trebling in that time, according to the Office of National Statistics.
With the aging population growing rapidly, now is an ideal time to consider running your own business in the mobility industry.
Who We’re Looking for
If you are you driven by a passion for helping others, enthusiastic to succeed, and have the ambition and determination to run an ethical business, we want to hear from you.
While experience of the commercial world is an advantage, you do not need to have any specific background to succeed. Among our franchisees have been members of the armed services, teachers, retailers, engineers, public service employees, and sales and marketing people.
All franchisees benefit from Ableworld’s comprehensive training programme which covers all sides of the business. Over six weeks you will spend time at our head office and with key suppliers. The programme also includes several weeks’ on-the-job training, from experienced Ableworld trainers, in Ableworld stores and your own franchise store.
Prospective franchisees will need an investment of £75K-£80K which includes everything you need to start up including stock and setting up the store. Finance is available from UK banks for up to 70% of the initial investment (subject to status).
The mobility industry is at a turning point and there will never be a better time to join in the inevitable growth of the sector and invest in the future with an Ableworld franchise.
What We Can Offer
Ableworld is the largest mobility retailer in the UK and we want to share that success with as many of you as we can. We can help you to help others, meaning you can achieve good financial rewards. You also get the satisfaction of knowing you have really made a difference to a person’s life with a mobility aid or advice.
We have a tried-and-tested business model which has been developed since we started trading in 2001. In 2010 we became members of the British Franchise Association when we started offering our business model as a franchise opportunity.
Once open, franchisees can look forward to Ableworld’s unrivalled business support from our professional head office and experienced business support managers.
Ableworld has mobility superstores in England, Wales, and Scotland. We have availability for more franchises across mainland UK and have mapped out some generous exclusive territories which would make excellent opportunities for potential franchise partners.
