About Clarks

Established in 1825, Clarks is a footwear retail franchise that has been franchising since 1985. The brand currently has 21 franchises and in 2010, 10 new franchise store locations opened across the UK. The franchise is looking to expand the network and they’re looking for the right partners. Are you the one?

What They Offer

Defined by the craftsmanship of their shoes, Clark’s ability to innovate and offer the highest quality footwear products is unsurpassed. It all started with Cyrus and James Clark who began their operations by using sheepskin off-cuts to make slippers. In the decades that followed, Clarks has become known as a specialist in foot development.

In fact, it was the first brand to specifically cater to children’s growing feet by inventing half sizes and width fittings, supporting them from their very first step. However, it’s not just children who the brand caters to. It’s adults as well. They create “made to last” products with value. Staying true to the vision of their founders, Clarks continues their tradition and they’re all about iconic shoes that last, which is what they do best.

In addition to this, the brand’s approach to shoe production and market penetration is one that’s driven by being ethical and sustainable. This is one of the reasons why it is also a part of multiple charity initiatives, among which is one where old shoes are recycled and donated to disadvantaged children around the world.

To date, the company trades from a combination of retail owned stores and over 115 franchise stores in the UK. Expanding the network is done by enabling franchisees to acquire new store opportunities plus invest in the upgrade and refit of the current portfolio.

Who Are They Looking For?

As a Clarks franchisee partner, you do not necessarily need to have experience in shoemaking or have a similar professional background. However, people and strong communication skills, leadership and management as well as sales will be to your advantage.

The Cost

The investment level for the Clarks franchise opportunity is £160,000 and the current 21 franchisees are expected to together generate turnover of £50 million in 2023. Impressive, isn’t it?

Training and Support

Worried about how you’ll be able to run your franchise business? Clarks has you covered all the way. Their dedicated franchise team is there to support you at every step of your journey. They will help you do this by ensuring you deliver excellence at your store, and you’ll also be given top class training while learning visual merchandising techniques.

But training and support don’t end there. In fact, apart from the dedicated Clarks franchise team, you’ll be able to take advantage of a professional partnership that is there to help you grow your business and the franchise network as a whole.
