ActionCOACH, The World’s Number 1 Business Coaching Team

This award-winning franchise for business coaching has proven highly successful for franchise partners and clients alike. Established as a company in 1993 and franchised in 1997 there are already over 1,000 business coaches worldwide developing extremely successful businesses for themselves and their clients. Our coaches build a rewarding business by helping other business owners succeed. If you are the type of person who finds a way to get things done, loves helping people and has a passion for learning, this is the fastest route to freedom and fulfilment that any franchise owner can enjoy.

ActionCOACH is the WINNER of ‘The Best Franchise Awards’ for ‘£25-75K investment 2015’ and has been voted the WINNER of ‘The Best Franchise Awards Continuous Improvement 2015’ award for TWO consecutive years and, is one of only five franchises to achieve Smith & Henderson’s prestigious 5 Star Franchisee Satisfaction status three years running, sponsored by RBS. ActionCOACH has already built a team of more than 150 business coaches in the UK, where our franchise partners have achieved remarkable results with thousands of clients.

The franchise was launched in the UK and Europe in 2001 with small to medium business growth acting as a catalyst for expansion. The business coach works with business owners to help them increase their profits, implement powerful systems and build a strong team so that they make more money without needing to work all hours under the sun.

All franchise partners attend an intensive 10-day induction training and 4 day UK MasterCLASS training, receive a library of resources and the ongoing support of their local and global Action office Team through group coaching webinars, individual coaching calls, quarterly conferences, quarterly team meeting and training days, and an extensive global intranet system. The shared values and culture result in plentiful teamwork between franchise partners locally and nationally and help is always at the end of the phone or on hand from the franchise network.

The entry level investment for the franchise is £21,000 plus working capital with guaranteed Returns on Investment. The biggest returns though are the personal “thank you” words and actions our franchise partners receive from their clients and the recognition they get for the difference they make in their local economy as business growth fuels more jobs, security and financial freedom for families.

In the last year, ActionCOACH UK received the ultimate testimony with three clients, having built a commercial, profitable enterprise that works without them, choosing to buy an ActionCOACH franchise to help other local business owners achieve their goals and dreams.


Working as a business manager for a local charity in 2005, Mandy Hildred had called in ActionCOACH to inject some dynamism into an organisation that was stagnating. She found the experience so enjoyable that when her contract was up with the newly successful charity she joined the team. Ten years on as an ActionCOACH in her own right, Mandy has never looked back. “Within the first few months I had half a dozen clients and by the end of the first year I’d more than exceeded my income expectations,” she says. “Like any company owner, the biggest challenge is about building the business and delivering at the same time. I’ve had the support to be able to do that and with a business partner who shares my vision I’m now building a team of coaches, working with strategic partnerships such as accountants and banks with the aim of expanding the one-to-one and group coaching programmes and branching out into north and east Yorkshire. “I say to anyone thinking of joining a business franchise such as this, if you spend a couple of days talking to an ActionCOACH you’ll be better able to make the right decision – for both your head and your heart.”
