About Kyros

Kyros is in the business of matching square pegs with square holes.

Whether you’re a franchisor seeking suitable franchisees for your network, or a prospective franchisee, wondering which brand is most suitable for you, Kyros, together with its associated companies, has a service which has been designed with you in mind.

Much of our business comes through recommendations from those who have benefited from working with Kyros; and a number of our relationships with franchisors go back many years.

Although the technology and tools for finding the right ‘match’ have evolved significantly during this time, the principles underlying successful matchmaking remain the same – our approach is to embrace those new tools which work, whilst remaining totally committed to delivering outstanding personal service to our franchisor, franchisee and prospective franchisee customers.

What we do…

  • Design and implement franchisee recruitment programmes
  • Provide outsourced services for parts of the recruitment process
  • Help those seeking suitable franchises to do so easily
  • Facilitate the sale of franchise, master franchise or franchisor businesses
