Buy an existing franchise

We offer a number of routes into partnership with Boots Opticians as a Franchise Partner so after completing the first stages of assessment we are happy to introduce you to existing Franchise Partners who are looking to sell their Practice. 

The benefit of purchasing an existing business allows you to start within Boots Opticians with an existing customer database and team who are knowledgeable about the brand locally.  We would expect our incoming Franchise Partner to complete a shopfit to the current specification within 12 months of purchasing the business, assuming it’s not already completed.

Franchise Partners are able to sell their business at any time during their partnership with Boots Opticians.  Boots can make introductions of potential new partners to sellers and allow them the opportunity to discuss the valuation of the business as Boots do not get involved these negotiations.

Once the seller and the purchaser have agreed on the price of the practice you’ll then be invited to share your business plan with the Franchise team as part of your assessment.  We will support you with the business plan and ensure that you’re clear about the commitments you’re about to make whilst ensuring that you really do own the plan.
