A Unique blend of Franchising know-how and recruitment excellence

Franchising is a people business whether it is the Franchise Support Manager employed by the Franchisor or the Office Manager appointed by the Franchisee, success for all parties can only be achieved by having the right people in the right place at the right time.

Step forward FranRec  -  two decades of Franchising experience and Recruitment excellence combine to provide the British Franchise Industry with un-rivalled, cost effective, staffing solutions.

 FranRec was set up by Simon Wise.



Founding Director

Simon celebrates a career in franchising spanning over 20 years and offers unrivalled access to the franchise talent pool. 

From 1998 to 2005 Simon was the Deputy Director-General of the British Franchise Association (bfa), responsible for membership recruitment, marketing and revenue growth.

In 2005 Simon left the bfa, ‘put his money where his mouth was’ and bought a recruitment franchise in North London.

His recruitment franchise thrived built on a reputation for 'the best candidates and customer service’ and a genuine enthusiasm and commitment for the business of recruitment.

After eight very successful years as a Franchisee, and with his love of ethical franchising and recruitment still very much intact Simon sold his business and set about building FranRec.

The Franchise industry was crying out for a dedicated staff recruiter with franchise know-how, a unique way to access the Franchise talent pool and operates a fair fee policy with built in guarantees.

FranRec has delivered and we have become the franchise staff recruiter of choice for many many franchise brands.
