Business Doctors and its strategic partners provide a unique blend of coaching and hands on business support services. We have developed a first of its kind Enterprise Development Solution that will change the SA SME development landscape. Business Doctors have also secured exclusivity to proprietary software that allows us to substantially increase the value of a business

The Brand

In 2014, Business Doctors expanded into South Africa and now, 11 years on, the network consists of 45 offices in the United Kingdom and 20 in South Africa. Business Doctors also boasts with branches in India, Malta, United Arab Emirates, Ireland and Germany, making this a truly international network.


Business Doctors provide small and medium size businesses with a host of proprietary programmes designed to help them develop effective strategic plans, improve their organisational efficiency, involve their staff in organisational change and master their supply chain.

Trained and equipped to deliver packaged Business Doctors programmes, Business Doctors rise to the top by helping other businesses to do the same. Sharing the benefit of their own experience, they help other businesses enjoy the success they themselves have achieved.

Supported by a national Franchise support team, Business Doctors enjoy both the independence of business ownership and the benefits of a supportive, collaborative nationwide professional network.


Pre-launch franchisee support and training:

We work closely with all our new franchisees through every stage in their journey, from the legal and financial aspects, business planning, marketing, PR and full launch programme. It doesn’t end there!

Post launch we offer a six-month marketing support programme, designed to help you with your first marketing campaigns, and digital marketing tools including full training and support for our franchisee management portal.

Training programme:

Our self-paced online training programme covers every aspect of running a Business Doctor franchise and will equip franchisees with our proven franchisee model. Franchisees leave part one with all the basic training required to set up their new business. Part two and three will enable us to recap and offer additional services and support.

On-going support:

Business Doctors is a collaborative network and with over 20 established Business Doctors, help and support is never far away.

Our field support manager meets up with all new franchisees on a monthly basis and quarterly after six months. These meetings provide an opportunity for you to discuss your business plans, progress and any challenges you may have.

Are You Our Next Franchisee?

Are you passionate about business with a desire to help others?

If you answered ‘yes’ and ‘yes’, then you have much in common with our other Business Doctors franchisees.
Graham Robson, Business Doctor for Tyne Tees and former recruitment industry managing director, was looking for a franchise that enabled him to pass on what he had learned during 38 years in business. He says: “If you can’t enjoy it, don’t do it!” and we couldn’t agree more.

Business Doctors franchise partners provide a high-quality package to SMEs, supporting their varying needs and facilitating them to grow. We are looking for business-savvy individuals who can follow our franchise system and will maintain our top levels of service.

Franchise partners should have excellent communication skills and strong commercial experience.
