What we look for in a Cafe2U franchise owner
Like any business, owning and operating a successful Cafe2U franchise requires 100% commitment. With this in mind we encourage you to carefully consider the following important points whilst you conduct your due diligence:
- Determine your motivation for wanting to join the Cafe2U team
- Assess any lifestyle and income implications of owning and operating your own Cafe2U franchise
- Determine if your financial situation supports the establishment of a Cafe2U franchise.
We have a unique territory-mapping program based on a sample of existing territories. This allows us to provide you with an exclusive Cafe2U territory, which we know will provide a customer base sufficient for the needs of a successful franchise.
Exclusive territories allow you to choose your area (where still available) and never compete with other Cafe2U Franchise Partners. With Cafe2U, your neighbours are your teammates, not your competition.
There are great territories available across the UK.
