Avoid taking a Franchise with them
They actively target newly qualified beauticians by text so be aware of the following before you sign up:
The Directors currently own a driving school franchise which has incredibly shockingly bad reviews by other franchisees - have a look on here Drive Dynamics and Kan Kan ltd. There are some heartbreaking stories on here
They have absolutely no experience of the health and beauty industry - they are ex Antiques dealers (verify on companies house)
They have been sanctioned by the Advertising Standards Agency for making false claims (their Driving School franchise) one of which was promising to supply 50 pupils a year - when they didn't deliver - http://www.asa.org.uk/Rulings/Adjudications/2014/1/Kan-Kan-Ltd/SHP_ADJ_243114.aspx#.U6p_hS5OVCo
There have already been beauticians leaving in the first year of trading due to lack of customers - one only stayed 3 months then had to leave as she couldn't afford the franchise fees.
They permanently discount the treatments to attract new business, making it very unprofitable for the franchisee. You have no control on charges for the treatments.
When things go wrong they refer all the customers back to you - abdicating total responsibility and liability
They immediately remove all bad reviews from their Facebook pages
They actively try to get bad reviews removed from review websites and when they cant they "bump" them by getting staff members and relatives to post reviews. They also offer free franchise weeks to get you to encourage your customers to post good reviews - have a look at the trust pilot review web site - you will see what I mean.
And finally - if you do take up a franchise and then want to leave within your contract period due to lack of customers they will have you in court before you can get the stickers off the car!
My advise from my own bitter experience with them is to spend the money on creating your own website - Good luck!
This is a new company run by the same Directors as Kan Kan and Drive Dynamics Driving School. It is run on the same business model which means as a Franchisee you will only make money for them not yourself. They will make you offer your beauty treatments at well below the market costs to attract customers but by the time you have paid your weekly franchise you will be left with nothing. Have a look at the many bad reviews from the driving school franchisees before you consider this one. One to avoid at all costs!
yes - don't worry its just threats - why are you leaving is it because they are not delivering what is in your contract? If so then just walk away, block their phone numbers and threaten bad publicity. They are dodging filing accounts at the moment which means its likely the business is not doing well and they don't want it publicised. They are also going through a liquidation with the driving school, its a mess! Hundreds have been in your position - made promises and they haven't lived up to them so you have nothing to worry about. If in doubt get a free 1/2 hour with a solicitor who will confirm this. Please, please though let others know about your bad experience. Post everywhere you can and warn others. They are very aggressive at removing bad reviews but cant get them all taken down.
Hi - If you are looking to leave because you don't like the company then it could be tricky but if you are wanting to leave as they have not fulfilled their contractual obligations then you are fine to do that. Do you have contracts stating so many clients will be guaranteed or that you will only have to travel a certain distance? If you do and the company have not fulfilled or flouted this then you are within your rights to leave without repercussion. She employs a para legal who is basically a solicitors assistant to send out threatening letters. Don't fall for it - they bank on you being frightened to death and paying up but in reality if it goes to court she will lose the case and incur costs. Sorry to say but they prey on young inexperienced beauticians and driving instructors who are naïve to a lot of this. I know they actively recruit from beauty schools and colleges. She also hates ( and I know she will read this ) bad publicity so go for it girls - if there is any trouble turn up at the next wedding fair, contact your local paper and tell the truth. You can also complain to companies house as she is running a business improperly for financial gain. Stand together - she is a nobody - a dodgy second rate ex antiques dealer with the worst reputation in the industry. Tell her you are leaving - give one months notice and advise in writing that you do not want any further contact with her, her lapdog (sorry husband) or anyone else at The BOM. List out the reasons why she has broken the contract and advise that if you get any threatening letters you will take her to court for breach of contract and contact the press. Good luck and move on - if you need any more advise post on here, there are many, many of us driving instructors who have been through this and can help. PS - spread the word on facebook, trustpilot, trading standards, watch dog any other review web site you can find. She uses it to promote her business so we will use it to finish it!
