Why Set Up A Franchise In Birmingham?

As one of the UK’s leading cities, Birmingham is always bustling and brimming with excitement. There’s plenty going on in the capital of the Midlands, but what does it have to offer franchisees who are looking for a new territory to run their outlet?

In our latest regional-based blog, we investigate what the heart of England is like for Rainbow franchisees, and why you might want to buy a franchise in Birmingham when you become part of our family.

Keeping the commuter hub alive

Despite being landlocked and well-equipped with ample resources, a recent wave of storms showed that Birmingham is as vulnerable to natural disaster as any port town or humble village. Pipes froze, power lines came down, and debris was sent flying across the city by 100mph winds.

Given Birmingham’s important status as a commuter hub between the North and the South, the storm damage caused chaos for those travelling through the region – with a desperate demand for disaster recovery specialists to patch up the city.

As a Rainbow franchisee in Birmingham, you’d be playing a pivotal role in keeping this heavy commuter traffic flowing all year round – repairing broken facilities and protecting premises from further damage so the busy city can continue to run like clockwork.

A start-up haven

Last year, Birmingham was named the “most entrepreneurial city” in the UK after London, with an increasing number of people choosing to set up here given that it’s a little over an hour away from the capital (less than 45 minutes when HS2 is complete).

Anyone who decides to buy a franchise for sale in Birmingham will also enjoy helpful support from the likes of the Birmingham City Centre Enterprise Zone – which offers “simplified planning, discounts on business rates, [and] increased support to attract investment”.

The city also has its very own Business & IP Centre which provides invaluable resources, materials and workshops for any business owner who desires them.

Talent galore

Birmingham is one of the most popular places for those pursuing higher education with four universities in the region: the University of Birmingham, Birmingham City University, Aston University, and Newman University.

Thousands of people in the Midlands are striving to earn a degree – which means business owners here have access to some of the most enthusiastic talent in the country. When you buy a franchise in Birmingham, you’re guaranteed to have some excellent candidates for any openings, enabling you to build up a brilliant team that can make a real difference in the region.
