Partner Profile


 We know that franchising is about more than just making money. It’s also about creating strong and mutually-beneficial relationships. And it’s an approach that saw us named as Best Franchisee Banking Provider at the Business Moneyfacts Awards 2019.

We understand the unique funding needs and structures required for franchise banking – and we tailor our approach accordingly, with our experienced business managers able to make fast, effective decisions. Through specialised long-term finance and risk management solutions designed specifically for franchisees and franchisors, we can support your individual growth plans.

If you’re looking to buy a franchise, our experts can help you decide whether franchising is right for you and take you through the steps you need to develop a successful business. Franchisees benefit from a central helpdesk, offering advice and liaison with local banking managers. Funding of up to 70% of start-up costs, subject to a suitable business plan and a strong credit history, is available for franchisees joining an established network with a good track record with HSBC.

If you’re looking to franchise your business, we can guide you through the process of planning and financing your franchise model by introducing you to key partners as well as our existing clients who are looking to expand their portfolio.

For experienced franchisors, our experts can support you through many aspects of your future journey, from driving domestic expansion and brand penetration to entering new international markets.

Our franchise team can also leverage a global network that covers some 66 countries and territories, which means we are uniquely placed to connect customers to opportunities as they expand internationally. Whether you’re looking to bring your franchise to the UK or to franchise your UK business overseas, we can leverage that network to provide the connections, guidance, knowledge and introductions you need to succeed.

Our support goes beyond finance, providing the expertise and networking opportunities that are vital in the industry. We run regular events, such as ‘Meet the brands’, to connect overseas franchises with potential franchisees in the UK.

We also provide mentoring and networking opportunities, giving franchisees the opportunity to learn from each other and from our own team of experts.

As part of that broader network of support, we work closely with the British Franchise Association (bfa) to encourage successful and ethical franchising. We also sponsor the bfa Franchisor and Franchisee of the Year awards.
