Needing help with territories

With such success, it was clear that franchising was a great expansion model for busylizzy.

They recognised that the complexity of planning territories and potential club locations could easily overburden their team and cause future problems if not properly planned. We were asked to provide help with the territories and UK network development.


What had they achieved?

We analysed the performance of the existing club in Guildford to intricately assess its catchment area.

Taking into account customer spread, demographics, and market penetration, conclusions could be drawn on the potential of the business model elsewhere around the UK.


Planning the network

Through open discussions, we were able to arrive at a realistic market composition for a franchise territory. These parameters were then used to plan a UK-wide network.

Our primary focus was to ensure that there was enough target market present within a realistic drive time from potential club locations.


Dividing the U.K into defined territories for prospective busylizzy franchises was a daunting task until we met Stuart. Our brief was quickly understood and actioned. Atlas Mapping got under the skin of our business to understand our clients and their buying behaviour and then considered geographical location and demographics for potential new clubs across the UK. We now have a fully mapped network ready to take to market.
