Owning your own business is a serious commitment, and one you need to be sure about. You also need to know if we’re the right business partner for you.

Equally, our franchisees are our brand ambassadors in communities across the world, so we need to be sure you’re right for us too.

That’s why becoming a Schmidt franchisee is a process of information-sharing, based on our company values of openness and honesty. You’ll get answers to any and all of your questions, and be given all the time you need to think things through.

As good things in life so often do, it all starts with a conversation …
