Who are Touchline Marking?
We are offering an opportunity which is profitable, home-based, and in a unique, widely unknown franchise sector.
Many people believe that schools, sports grounds, car parks, hospitals and others have their own people marking out the lines at their facilities when in reality, it is companies like
Touchline Marking who carry out this valuable service
It’s a fact that most of the work that we do at Touchline Marking will be taken for granted by the majority of the people who see it but our work can be found in sports facilities, schools, car parks and even within factory environments where we lay out clearly defined areas which are essential for effective health and safety practices.
Up to this point you, like a lot of other people, might simply not have noticed the amount and variety of jobs that Touchline carry out. As you now know our service contributes to the enjoyment and safety of the UK population on a daily basis.
The only people that don’t take our work for granted are our 100s of satisfied clients!
What is the demand for the Touchline service?
In one word ‘enormous’! The range of services that you will be able to offer as a Touchline franchisee are designed to help you maximise your income opportunities and build a lucrative and sustainable business.
If you just take the number of schools in the UK as of Oct-2019, according to besa.org.uk (the British Education Suppliers Association) whose figures come from the Department for Education; Welsh Government; Scottish Government; Northern Ireland Department of Education (2018/19); there are currently 32,770 schools in the UK the majority of which have playgrounds, sports areas & playing fields!!

If you have the desire to build a business, we’re looking for you!...
The Touchline Marking franchise model is an ‘Owner/Operator Model’, so as the business owner you will be the person who actually goes out and carries out the work required.
You will need to be a person who is willing and capable of doing reasonably physical work outdoors. Our business is to some extent weather dependent so you can be assured that you won’t be working outside in rain, hail and snow. PLUS as the vast majority of our installs are outdoors you will have very limited close contact with others while working, helping you to easily adhere to the current social distancing requirements.
In addition to actually doing the lining there is the business development aspect to be taken care off. You also need to be comfortable talking to anyone from an individual householder who wants a tennis court relined through to company directors who want a quote for a staff car park to have individual bays.
