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 Business Development  Manager appointed by the Franchisee, success for all parties can only be achieved by having the 'right people in the right seats at the right time'.

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

 FranRec founded by Simon Wise.

Simon celebrates a career in franchising spanning 25 years. 

From 1997 to 2005 he was the Deputy Director-General of the British Franchise Association (bfa), responsible for membership recruitment, marketing, standards, education and revenue growth.

Inspired by the success of the ethical franchise community and with a determination to provide a better future for his young family, Simon resigned from the bfa, ‘put his money where his mouth was’ and invested in a Driver Hire Recruitment Franchise which was based in North London. 

His recruitment business thrived built on a reputation for 'the best candidates and customer service’ and a genuine enthusiasm and commitment to put the right people in the right ( driving ) seats.

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

The Franchise industry was crying out for a dedicated Staff and Executive Recruitment Agency. One that understands Franchising, understands both sides of the equation and has the Franchise talent connections too.

FranRec has delivered and we have become the franchise staff recruiter of choice for many many franchise brands at every stage on the Franchisor development life-cycle.

We set out to be different and to be a useful resource for Franchisors -  its fitting that one of our valued customers has the last say: "... just wanted to say how fantastic it is you have created a dedicated recruitment business for the franchise industry. Throughout the growth of our global franchise, I consistently struggled to find good recruitment support that was specific to the franchise industry. It’s brilliant you’ve identified that problem and created a definitive solution for franchise businesses...."
