Ambience Venue Styling is a unique business working within the lucrative wedding industry. We have expanded quickly over the last 5 years by offering a high quality venue styling service centered on the supply of wedding chair covers and sashes through to venue and table decorations. We are the largest network of venue stylists in the UK.
We quickly outgrew our local area of coverage in and around the north of the UK and started to appoint franchisees in 2007 to help us deal with the higher levels of business. We are still turning business away from other regions and receive a steady stream of leads via our website and PR campaigns so we continue to appoint franchisees to manage these areas and join our team.
Our franchisees are part of the UK’s premier wedding franchise and benefit from an exclusive territory, training, master franchisor support, a subsidized stock hire function plus national marketing and lead generation through a page 1 ranking website on Google. Ambience was proud to be the only venue styling company to be nominated for the Special Touches awards at the 2012 and 2013 Wedding Ideas Magazine awards.
Our franchise package includes stock, equipment, marketing materials, stationery, corporate clothing plus a personalised web page which generates significant leads. The web site and page is hosted and maintained by head office who also carry out national PR and marketing on behalf of the franchise network.
On joining our network franchisees have access to our subsidized stock hire bank of over 8,500 styling items ranging from chair covers and sashes through to aisle runners, starlight backdrops, topiary trees and table centrepieces. Our franchisees can also use our Ambience network forum to hire stock to one another as a way of expanding their product range and increasing their revenue.
It’s a fun business which is home based and flexible so fits in perfectly around family life. An added financial benefit of our franchise to working parents is the child care cost savings that can be achieved due to the hours of work. UK statistics show that around 33% of a working parent’s income is spent on child care costs and those costs continue to escalate.
We urgently need new enthusiastic franchisees to join our network to manage their own local area and replicate our business model with our full support. We currently have 40 occupied franchised areas spread around the country and new areas scheduled to go “live” in the coming months, so if you join us you will be in business for yourself, but certainly won’t be by yourself. So if you are good with people, enjoy fabrics and fashion and want to develop your creative side then this is the opportunity you are looking for.
What is Venue Styling?
Venue styling is a great market which offers our franchisees a fantastic opportunity to develop a highly successful business in a growing marketplace.
We are the interior designers of the wedding industry providing brides with a high quality personal styling service at an affordable cost. We style wedding venues for our brides using co-ordinated table linen, napkins, chair covers, sashes, table decorations, centre pieces and accessories to help deliver a bride’s vision for her special day.
Why should you become an Ambience franchisee?
Our franchisees benefit from operating their own niche business in a growing market place so although there are some competitors we are busier than ever! The business model offers strong expansion potential either by continuing to directly operate the business yourself or through managing staff.
We are the UK’s premier wedding franchise. Here are the best bits about our franchise.
- Positive industry: Weddings are happy events and our franchisees genuinely feel that they are contributing something of value to brides.
- Control of your own destiny: You will be in business for yourself but not by yourself using a proven business model that 40 people are already operating successfully.
- Exclusive territory: We operate our franchise on an exclusive territory basis to allow our franchisees to build their business in their local area without competition from other Ambience franchisees.
- Training and support: With our training and support you will learn how to become a professional venue stylist and a successful small business owner.
- Subsidized stock hire: On joining the Ambience network you will have access to a subsidized stock bank of over 8,000 items to support you in the early stages of your business.
- Financially rewarding: Our efficient business model ensures that you can operate a financially rewarding business.
Is Ambience right for you?
In order to make a successful Ambience franchisee you will need to be a people person who is enthusiastic, creative and determined. You will need to be flexible with your work patterns (our franchisees find this a big plus particularly when moving from an employed position). You will need to work some weekends (usually Saturday mornings) and quite often meet with brides on an evening.
Training and support
If you join Ambience you will not be on your own; we will provide you with initial training over 2 days at our Head Office, a full Franchise Manual and continued support as you develop your business. We will support you in the early stages and guide and mentor you until you are on your feet. Our Franchisee Support Programme covers venue styling trends, marketing and sales, customer service, business planning, financial management and IT and operations. We hold an annual conference in November for our franchisees to get together to learn, share knowledge and socialise. We have a Franchisee Forum and documents library, network newsletters plus network benchmarking information so you can see how you are doing compared to other franchisees. Our team at Head Office have a strong business background and provide support and mentoring as well as practical guidance on how to replicate our success in your region.
