Our Fantastic Low Cost ASK Local Franchise

ASK is a group of family run brands established in 1988 by our owner and Managing Director in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.

Constantly innovating we believe the future is people buying more locally from people they know and trust from their local community, so we have developed our unique Extremely Low Cost ASK Local Franchise covering not just one product or service like most franchises, but all our many and growing successful ASK Business Brands.

These range from ASK Creative to ASK Yearbooks selling to the business, consumer, school, sports club and charity sectors and providing customers a local one-stop-shop for many of their business needs.

And with a nationwide network of franchisees we will be adding additional ASK Brands and products for you to promote and sell so you end up with a large array of Business Services and Products to sell. We are currently working on adding bespoke Telemarketing, Sports Club Printing and Funeral Printing brands.

Our Simple Low Cost Franchise Model

We have made your revenue stream simple, so no purchasing goods and working out a profit, you simply earn a 15% commission on all sales on most of our brand's products such as Print, Website Design & VoIP Telephony, and a smaller % on sales of some higher value products and services such as Fibre Leased Internet Lines (so we can keep their prices competitive in the market place).

And you get a High Specification 17" Laptop configured with all the software you will ever need to run a succesful business all setup by our IT team.

You have nothing to purchase, little or no Project Management to do, all you have to do is Find, Sell to and Service your Customers.

Why is ASK Local such a Low Cost to purchase Franchise?

Choosing the right franchise can be a risky business with many companies charging huge upfront costs and signing you up on long term contracts. That is not what we are about at ASK!

At ASK we are an ethical company doing a lot of work in the schools and charity sector as well as being as passionately eco-friendly as possible in all our products and services.

So we are less interested in a quick sale and lots of your money up front, but very interested in forging mutually beneficial long term partnerships with like minded, enthusiastic, hard working franchisees that gives them a great reward and in turn helps grow our brands and businesses into their local community. So we have set our Franchise Cost at the very low purchase price of £3000, AND to hit the ground running we are offering it at a 60% discount of just £1200 until 31st March 2022. And remember you get products and goods worth more than the £1200 including a high specification 17" i5 Chip Laptop setup with business software ready for you to use by our IT team.

Because of Covid-19 we did not want people to risk their time and hard earned money in these uncertain times, so we moved our 2020 launch to 1st January 2022 after the end of lockdown and when we can train people properly face to face, which we will also provide online for those who can't or don't wish to travel to Group Training.

And even then there is NO long standing contract, should your circumstances change or you decide it is not for you, you can stop without penalty with just one month's notice.

This is good for us as we only want enthused franchisees and sales agents promoting our brand, and good for you as it removes all the risk.
