Franchise FAQ

NobleProg Franchise Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

What are the fees involved?

One-off fees: Initial and Training Fees.

Ongoing Fees: System Fee, currently at 12.5%.

What is the typical proportion between training and consultancy?

It depends on the region and time. At peak times, consultancy can constitute over 90% of some franchisees' annual revenue. On average, it is around 10%.

Can I provide other services in addition to the NobleProg Franchise?

No. You can own other companies, but they should not compete with the NobleProg business. All income earned by the company designated in the franchisee agreement is liable for the appropriate commission fees as stated in the Franchise agreement.

How long does it take to start the whole business?

The due diligence process can take a couple of weeks. If you have a registered limited company, it is a matter of a 5-day training course after which you can start your business.

Do I have to have an office at the start?

For a typical territory, franchisees will need to rent or buy an office. In smaller territories, you can work from home provided you have a phone line and a high-speed Internet connection.

What is the perfect profile of a successful franchisee?

Our franchisees come from various backgrounds. Some come from a training background, some were full-time employees, and others were small entrepreneurs. The most important traits are openness, dedication to work, and teamwork.

How many employees does a franchise require?

Initially, you can start by yourself and use freelance trainers. Later, you will need training coordinators and sales staff. Usually, two to four permanent employees are enough for a medium-sized area (5 million people).


What is the size of the market?

The global corporate training market is significant and expanding rapidly. In 2023, it was valued at approximately USD 329.01 billion and is projected to grow to around USD 354.97 billion in 2024, with expectations to reach USD 586.66 billion by 2030. This growth is driven by the increasing importance of employee training in improving performance, the integration of advanced technologies like AI and AR, and the expansion of digital training platforms​

Is the demand for the services the same throughout the year?

No, the demand is seasonal. Depending on the type of service or training, it can change dramatically. For example, in Poland, during the summer holiday period, there is little demand for training courses. At the end of the year, many companies try to spend their budget, so the demand is much higher.


What are the demographics of clients?

Our clients are typically people aged 25-50 who are already working in a specific industry and are either trying to improve their skills or retrain themselves for a different role or job.

Selling Services

How do you find customers?

Usually, customers find us through our online marketing tools.

Do I need to cold-call people?

No, we do not send unsolicited emails, letters, or undertake any cold calling.

Advertising strategy, marketing strategy, PR, etc.

Apart from our website, you may be asked to promote NobleProg at regional trade fairs, conferences, etc. Occasionally, you will benefit from our PR work, which can be done on both global and local levels. All articles, interviews, or other forms of presenting NobleProg to a wider audience should be coordinated with the Franchisor.


What type of location is needed?

It depends on local demand. If most of the courses in your geographical area or area of expertise are held on client premises, there is no need for a large office and training rooms. In big cities, we usually require a NobleProg office to be located near a train/metro/bus station and relatively close to the center or any other important area. Other locations, such as mountain resorts, lakes, or sea areas, can also be attractive to participants.

Do I need to buy the location?

No, but in the long term, it might be a good investment.

Are a lot of changes needed to accommodate a location?

It usually takes a couple of days to a few weeks to set everything up. You need comfortable chairs, desks, and an appropriate logo placed in the foyer or reception. All guidelines are provided in the NobleProg Franchise Manual. It is a good idea to visit one of our existing offices.
