Delightful Desserts was launched in 2015 and has gone from strength to strength ever since. It now has 20 sites up and running. And that’s just the beginning. The company has targets to open over 150 sites by 2020. With more than 40 flavours of ice cream, Arabica coffee, American waffles and seasonal crepes among other treats, this franchise definitely takes the cake when it comes to quick growth. And once 2019 rolls around it even plans to take Delightful Desserts into international markets. It seems safe to say things are looking rather sweet.

Who doesn’t like a mean Indian wrap? Specially with authentic flavours like chicken tikka masala and vegetable samosa? Indeed, to cater every foodie in Britain, Chapati Man is bringing the essence of curry in a wrap to every corner through the franchisor’s mobile vans. Having launched in 2007, a husband and wife duo drove through festivals and stocked these wraps in supermarkets. And having only stepped into franchising in 2018, it signed its first international master franchisee in Sri Lanka within a few months who will now operate through vans and stores. Looking at his culinary chops, the future looks deliciously unstoppable for Chapati Man.

Taking care of properties is challenging. Luckily, property management franchise Blocsphere aims to change this by expanding the business around the UK. Having launched in 2013, the company recently started franchising and its first pilot franchisee is lined up to come on board in the beginning of 2019. Along with physical maintenance, the franchise also ensures that clients are assisted with meeting their legal obligations in areas such as safety, compliance and financial management. The franchise looks after a range of different properties like apartment blocks, housing estates and commercial properties. Prospective franchisees can certainly expect to see the welcome mat rolled out in front of them.

Stress today is a part of every working professional’s life. And what can be better than a massage to alleviate the tension? This is why Arizona-founded spa franchise, spa810 is set to take the UK spa industry by storm. It began franchising in 2012 and has grown to 27 regions. In November 2018, it gave the master franchise licence for UK and Ireland to Duncan Berry, the franchising veteran and former COO of care franchise Bluebird Care, and his wife Tania. The husband and wife team will open the brand’s first location in the UK in Harrogate, North Yorkshire and are looking to develop a network of franchisees across the British Isles. What can be better than providing to people’s need for a knead?

This new franchise has made children sing and dance to its tune since launching in 2013. Two friends, Katie Verner and Jeanne Friedman created the company as a preschool music franchise in California before relocating to the UK. After gaining success through its first five centres, it decided to expand and sold its first franchise in July 2018. Due to the increasing demand for recreational activities for children, the pilot franchisee already signed the dotted line for three locations. Going forward, the master franchisee hopes to sign two more in 2019 and a further three in 2020. We can surely say this franchise won’t stop the beat anytime soon.
