Vodafone Business IT Hubs – the franchise opportunity

Keeping pace with digital development has never seemed harder. Businesses today need flexible, easy-to-use and secure technology to stay relevant and competitive in a profoundly changing world. This is particularly true for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). Although IT demands on SMEs continue to grow, access to enterprise-grade solutions and services is often inaccessible to them.

At Vodafone we’re filling this gap and transforming our place in this market. Drawing on our years of experience as the market leader in business mobile, we’re now delivering fully managed IT and comms services through locally based franchises: our Vodafone Business IT Hubs.

These Hubs are a network of independent Managed Service Providers who can offer full IT and comms support to small businesses in their local region. As a Franchise owner you become the ‘go to’ expert service provider acting as the outsourced IT department for small businesses in your area. You’ll become integral to the daily business operations of your local customers as their trusted business partner for technology.

We’re looking for enthusiastic businesspeople to join this unique opportunity and become franchise owners of one of over 300 Vodafone Business IT Hubs across the UK.

Why become a Vodafone Business IT Hubs franchisee?

Best of both worlds

Benefit from the backing of a trusted brand and franchisor. Vodafone Business IT Hubs can take advantage of Vodafone’s scale and expertise in marketing, lead generation, CVM, vendor management and corporate-grade products, as well as years of experience running franchises. All this, plus the independence to lead your own team and operate a localised support model that unlocks growth for small businesses in your area.

Low risk, high reward

As a franchisee, benefit from low upfront and operational costs as well as territory exclusivity and the potential for uncapped returns.

Vodafone Business IT Hubs are shifting the scales in favour of small business. You’ll stand out in the market by leveraging Vodafone’s comms and connectivity expertise alongside a complete and extensive portfolio of managed IT services, creating a one-stop-shop for SMEs.
