5. Is experience necessary?

No experience is necessary with a ChipsAway franchise, as we provide full training at our bespoke IMI accredited facilities. Most of our franchisees have no prior experience of self employment let alone experience in this sector, so we understand the importance of providing the highest quality of teaching and support throughout. To find out more about the training we provide, go to our Franchise Package page.
