In short, no. Many businesses are not suited to franchising for various reasons which include financial, operational and market size issues. As a responsible Franchise Practitioner, we will always be honest with prospective clients and tell them whether or not franchising is right for them.
Conversely, there are many great companies that have no idea that they are BRILLIANTLY suited to franchising - and that might be you!

Well the cost of franchising a business badly could run into the millions and cost your franchisees their livelihood. Trust me, you do not want to go down that route!
Franchising your business well, is largely dependent on how complicated your business is, e.g. A Domestic Care franchise is more complex than a lawn cutting business and so will neccesarily be more expensive.
But, in answer to your question, here is a ballpark figure: on the low end you should be looking at £10k and the high end around £60k to have a proper job done.
