FAQ

How much does it cost to start a RTF Franchise?

Starting a business requires investment and a bridal franchise is no different. Here is a breakdown of our start-up costs for a UK Rock The Frock franchise:

⚡️£15,000 Licence fee

⚡️£20,000-£25,000 initial stock purchase 

⚡️£1,000 Legal fees 

⚡️£750 RTF neon sign

You will incur other fees such as rent deposit, shop re-fit and consumables and we ask that franchisees have working capital to see them through the first months in business. Please contact us if you would like help or advice with estimating start-up costs and the profit and loss you can expect across the first three years in business.

Why choose a franchise?

It is a well known but sad fact that one in five businesses fail in the first five years. However, the statistics for franchises are much, much lower due to the level of support a franchisee receives from an already established business. It is also easier to secure financial help for a franchised business than someone starting up on their own for this very reason! 

Here at Rock The Frock, we provide our franchisees with a very high level of support, from choosing the right boutique location to full sales training, choice of stock, social media and marketing and more!

By buying into an established brand, you are safe in the knowledge that our marketing is strong and effective. Rock The Frock has built an incredibly large following across social media channels since opening in 2014 and now boast over 25,000 followers on Instagram, nearly 10,000 on Facebook and a web traffic average of 2,000 visitors per week!

RTF Pre-Loved

If a full blown RTF Boutique isn't quite for you, then why not consider opening a RTF Pre-loved boutique? A new concept for the brand, Rock The Frock Pre-Loved franchise is an outlet for brides to grab a slice of our style at a smaller cost by purchasing samples or pre-worn dresses from our stores and other modern designers.

Pre-Loved stores receive the same support but with a different marketing spend as our original boutiques.

The costs for a RTF Pre-Loved at slightly different, as detailed below:

⚡️£20,000 boutique start-up package (including £15,000 worth of stock)

⚡️£1,000 Legal fees 

⚡️£750 RTF neon sign

You will incur other fees such as rent deposit, shop re-fit and consumables and we ask that franchisees have working capital to see them through the first months in business. Please contact us if you would like help or advice with estimating start-up costs and the profit and loss you can expect across the first three years in business.

What experience do I need?

We don't ask for specific retail experience but it is helpful if you have had some experience in managing a shop or a business! The most valuable skills are that you are a people-person who can offer incredible levels of customer service at all times. You must be reliable, honest, and most of all, hard-working and dedicated to succeed.
