Are you thinking of or maybe even researching starting a new business BUT haven't taken a look at the franchise market place? Today's franchise offerings are more diverse than ever, there is something for everyone covering lots of industries, plenty of financial entry levels and a wide range of franchisor/franchisee engagement arrangements. By selecting the correct franchise and franchisor, franchisees can enjoy an accelerated, supported start for their businesses taking away the daunting thought of starting from scratch and working alone.



I'm Samantha Acton, found of Domestic Angels and Domestic Angels Franchising. My team and I help to give people their time and lives back through our services to customers and our franchisees. We would be very happy to chat with you about the advantages of the franchise market place and what you could expect from choosing this option.

Domestic Angels Franchising Limited
 
Samantha Action is something of a Dorset business superwoman. But even this heroine was brought to her knees by the demands of a busy work life and being a new mum. Like any working parent, Samantha dusted herself down, kept calm and carried on, but her role in the cut-throat financial services industry meant a return to work just six months after son Jack was born 17 years ago. The pressures and demands for her time, both at home and at work, sparked a lightbulb moment. After taking the first available opportunity for redundancy, Samantha regrouped and a spur of the moment opportunity presented itself. After helping a close friend find a trustworthy, reliable cleaner, Domestic Angels was born. In 2002, Samantha recruited her first Angel and hasn’t looked back since. Despite being a novice in a business sense, Sam’s forward-thinking and professional values shone through in the early days of the business and Domestic Angels now boasts as many as 20 staff and more than 130 clients across its four Dorset branches. In 2016, Samantha franchised the business, offering the same flexible home-based management solution that had been the catalyst for her own work / life balance 14 years earlier. A two-time winner of regional and national Venus Awards, Samantha Action is one of Dorset’s sharpest business minds and a true champion of women in business.
