Interested in being your own boss? Discover Franchises in Devon

Despite being home to the Dartmoor National Park spanning over 360 square miles, Devon is home to several seaside towns and bustling cities. The popular seaside towns and nearby areas of tourism make franchising in Devon a popular venture. Just some of the popular areas in Devon include Dawlish, Paignton, Exeter and Plymouth.

Thanks to its recently improved rail links, Okehampton, at the north end of Devon, welcomes visitors from across the country to visit Dartmoor National Park. Okehampton is also popular in media, having featured in Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares and has plenty of major highstreet chains. Boasting at least 3 supermarkets (Waitrose, Co-Op and Lidl), Okehampton is a fantastic place to start a franchise.

At the heart of Dartmoor National Park, Princetown welcomes visitors with open arms because it has a museum, numerous pubs, campsites and easy access to a wide range of tourism opportunities. At the north, Dartmoor Prison. To the South, home of the "bottomless" Crazywell Pool. To every point on the compass, hiking opportunities at Dartmoor's many tors for visitors.

Bounded by Cornwall and Somerset, both of which also popular tourist destinations, there's no denying Devon is a fantastic place to become a franchisee.

Popular Franchises in Devon

Devon is a popular tourist destination, and so cafe and restaurant franchises are top choices for franchising in Devon. Pubs are also a fantastic choice. With the Dartmoor National Park appealing walkers, you'd do well to open any sort of pet related business, as dogs and horses are in popular numbers across the park. Pet food delivery and vet related businesses will be in strong demand, with farmers in no shortage as well.

Automotive related franchises are also in good demand throughout Devon and neighbouring areas. With vast areas of moorland and step gradients, it is essential to keep vehicles in good condition to avoid breaking down in weak signal areas. Petrol stations aren't particularly populous around the Dartmoor National Park so any sort of automotive business would be a top choice.

Although Dartmoor takes up 365 square miles of Devon, bordering cities are also very densely populated, and that includes spots like Plymouth and Dawlish, both fantastic seaside resorts. That's not to say that the South West doesn't have its fair share of bad British weather, meaning home services and improvement franchises like window cleaning, gutter clearing and construction will all be in favourable demand!

Best Places to Open a Franchise in Devon

If you're looking to get into business for yourself but not by yourself, franchising is a great place to start. You benefit from full training and support from the franchisor, plus get access to an established, proven brand and business model. You don't risk many of the mistakes easily made when starting up a business from scratch, because the franchise operations manual is there to guide you. Here are some of the best places to open a franchise in Devon.

Buying a Franchise in Exeter

The county town of Devon, Exeter is home to many businesses - many of which are franchised. Also home to Exeter university, a cathedral and a river running through, Exeter is a popular place for visitors and those looking to settle down. With fantastic transport links to other parts of the country, Exeter is well positioned to attract many top franchise brands.

Buying a Franchise in Princetown

Located at the heart of Dartmoor National Park, Princetown is positioned rurally away from many types of business. Whilst the town does have its fair share of shops, pubs and small local businesses, the rurality means it is an open door for franchising. There is a distinct lack of automotive business across the area, with the nearest petrol station being Tavistock or Yelverton, both a five mile journey. Demand doesn't stop there. With huge green open spaces on your doorstep, Princetown is a fantastic place to establish a business that attracts visitors from far and wide, whilst still having sheer pleasure of owning a business if you opt to run a home based franchise.
