Open a new franchise

To improve accessibility to our brand and to attract more new customers we’re really keen to open new free-standing Practices in a number of locations around the UK.

We have a list of locations already identified as suitable for opening new Practices near our Boots the Chemist stores but we’re also keen to hear about other opportunities you believe there may be across the country. We can share information on the location too through analysis of the local customers with a Boots Advantage Card.

We’ll help you find the location, the property for the Practice and designing the layout to meet the latest specification for a great looking Boots Opticians. We’ll manage the builders, local planners and the Landlords for you so you can focus on getting your team ready for opening.

You will need to prepare a business plan for the location and new Practice that will be assessed by our Franchise team and, of course, we’ll help you with those plans whilst you retain accountability for the details as your lender is likely to need this from you.

We’ll help your new opening by often offering a management fee concession for a period of time to support your cashflow at the beginning of your venture.
