Apart from being a large industrial area recognised for shipping, hospitality, tourism and football. Liverpool encompasses two sides of one of the largest arterial rivers in the UK, the River Mersey, made famous by Gerry and the Pacemakers in an iconic song Ferry ‘cross the Mersey. Liverpool has also grown up with the recognisable and undeniable power or Liverpool FC’s theme tune ‘you will never walk alone’ which resonates from one of the largest football grounds in the UK every match day. There is also another large football club Everton, one mile away, which are completely blue and do sing a different tune. Liverpool resonates with sporting prowess including events like the Grand National the iconic steeplechase, run every year at Aintree that stops the nation. Liverpool has always created a buzzing environment from its three universities, diverse music scene, two cathedrals and supposedly one heart.
An entrepreneurial city
Liverpool is a place where many people have an entrepreneurial outlook based on a thousand years of habitation. Benedictine Monks ran the first regular commercial ferry from Birkenhead to Liverpool in 1330. The Monks would row over to the fishing village in Liverpool on market day.
On that note, some of the businesses like the local inn The Magazine, the haunt of pirates and smugglers, on the other side of the Mersey from Liverpool have been run consistently for 300 years. So this is a place where early entrepreneurs cut their teeth. The shipping and docking facilities on both sides of the Mersey were second to none. In the 1800’s Liverpool was the most important city in the world but now it is not, as London, New York and Rotterdam have taken this mantle.
Being a centre for world shipping has never detracted from thousands of small businesses operating successfully every day servicing the local community. Small business employs many people from hairdressing salons, part time dog walkers, service providers and of course the boys from the black stuff. A myriad of play writes and artistic genius has made Liverpool a hotbed of new franchise ideas, fashion, style, and without a doubt lifestyle.
This area, both sides of the Mersey, offers many opportunities for business franchises, computer franchises or otherwise, to grow due to the dense population and the closeness of the community, and the belief that small business is better. Local business people are looking more towards franchise models that work well and are accepted with well-known names and brands and logos, due to their fashionista lifestyle. The work from home phenomenon means that people are more likely now to run a business in Liverpool or look for a franchise business opportunity in Liverpool where they can create a part time lifestyle, work from home or create an income stream from anything including education franchises, online internet franchises to retail and food outlets.
