Tezlom Credibility

Tezlom are proud expanding members of the British Franchise Association (BFA), which might have you thinking ‘so what does that mean for me?’. The BFA are the governing body that represents the franchise industry in the UK. For Tezlom to become a BFA-approved franchise, the business model must adhere to a set of standards that establishes best practice in the franchising world. This gives you the reassurance that the business model is viable, runs with ease, is ethical and is committed to the development and success of each franchise and the brand itself.

Tezlom Expanding BFA Membership

Being accredited by the BFA showcases our Ethical commitment to UK Franchising. To become a Member of the BFA we must go through an initial accreditation and regular re-accreditations to ensure we remain compliant to the BFA’s Code of Ethic’s and Standards. Within this a number of our processes and documents are reviewed, such as: Franchise Agreement, Business Operations & evidence of the Business Model. As an Expanding Member of the BFA it shows that we have evidenced our business model successfully through our franchisee network and are still looking to expand our network across the UK.

Three Essential Key Factors

For Tezlom, it was important to us to become recognised with the BFA, so that we help influence the success of our franchisees. There are three key factors that stood out to us and were essential parts of Tezlom taking the plunge to become accredited. These were:

1. Franchisable: meaning that the Tezlom healthcare recruitment business model can be replicated in other locations, with other people operating it, and still succeed. The nature of the business concept needs to be such that someone other than the franchisor can successfully develop it. For a business system or business model to be able to be franchised, first there must be something tangible and worthwhile to franchise. Otherwise, what are you, the franchisee, actually buying? This means that Tezlom have been able to demonstrate that we have been successfully operating our healthcare recruitment business ourselves in the form that we propose to franchise, and further that the business model is transferable to other places, under different ownerships.

2. Viable: implies not only that a Tezlom franchise is a replicable business, but also that both, us as the franchisor, and you as the franchisee can run it profitably. Tezlom had to show that, if operated properly, the franchise provides a satisfactory financial return to both parties. For you as a franchisee this means a reasonable return on the investment, and for the work involved and for a reasonable period, in addition to being able to pay the franchisor any fees due under the franchise agreement.

3. Education: by joining the BFA, it means that franchisees and franchisors are making the commitment to work in partnership with the BFA, to drive forward a sector that is committed to operating fair business models and promoting healthy opportunities for all. As part of Tezlom being accredited by the BFA, you as a franchisee will have access to the BFA’s free franchisee membership, which will give you access to additional resources, events and educational content. The outreach work extends to educational and government bodies with a range on initiatives. This means for you, that these courses are available to you as a franchisee which will help motivate and develop your business from an outside influence.

In the preparation for Tezlom becoming accredited by the BFA, part of the process is an independent survey carried out by The WorkBuzz. We were proud to receive back some incredible feedbacks from existing franchisees such as:
