Near the dead centre of Great Britain, Stoke-On-Trent – or the Potteries, as it’s affectionately known – is a city with much appeal for aspiring franchise business owners. Adjoining the borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme, it’s flanked by lowlands, hills and the River Trent, made up of five distinct townships.
