The outdoor clothing retailer Rohan has unveiled 20 UK franchise opportunities – from Fort William to the Isle of Wight.

The company, which was established in 1972 by husband and wife team, Paul and Sarah Howcroft, opened its first franchise in 1985 and is now seeking expansion with a number of new retail outlets.

The locations targeted include Amersham, Lincoln, Lewes, Dorchester, Marlborough, Reigate, Sudbury, Lymington and Windsor.

Franchisors are also wanted to operate outlets in Ludlow, Brighton, Market Harborough, Newbury and Tavistock, as well as Betws Y Coed, Monmouth, Hungerford and St Albans.

The initial franchise investment for each outlet is £19,750 (plus VAT) and the total investment required by new franchisors is expected to be approximately £75,000 (plus VAT). However, a key asset of the franchise model is that none of this capital is tied up in stock.

Open days for potential franchisers are currently being held at Rohan’s head office in Milton Keynes every Wednesday, where new outlet owners will receive two weeks’ initial training.
