Franchise Brands plc was founded in September 2008 by Stephen Hemsley (Executive Chairman) and Nigel Wray (Non-executive Director) and is an international multi-brand franchisor with a combined network of over 450 franchisees in 12 countries across four brands.

Franchise Brands’ vision is to create a group of market-leading franchise businesses that benefit from sharing the same support services. This model allows the management of the individual brands to focus on expanding their networks, and supporting their franchisees to grow their businesses.

Currently the Group has four brands; Metro Rod, ChipsAway, Ovenclean and Barking Mad. Each of our brands are leaders in their respective markets and the combined trading history of all the Group’s brands is 97 years.
