When we started the business 11 years ago there were around 2.5 million people taking part in dating events of some kind. That’s an explosion of success and a 640% increase over 10 years and it offers a great business opportunity for the right people. With over 20 million singles in the UK increasing year on year by around 250,000, we are always looking for more great social organisers and hosts for our events around the UK.
We also offer a Franchise opportunities for the right people.
Our Franchisees come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and from varied backgrounds.
One of the world’s oldest professions is matchmaking, and given the role of technology in today’s world, it’s no surprise that the industry is booming.
Over the holiday, single men and women across the country would be returning home to visit relatives—only to find themselves interrogated relentlessly about marriage prospects. Afterward, Jiayuan’s enrollment would experience a surge similar to the New Year’s surge at fitness clubs in America. When Gong, who is thirty-six, talks about the happiness business, she tends to emphasize “price/performance ratios” and “information asymmetry.” The company, which she founded in her dorm room nine years ago, in order to find a husband, accounts for a sizable portion of China’s online dating industry and is traded on Nasdaq.
Our research has shown that some of the industry challenges are common to both traditional desktop and mobile dating services: the need for clarity on the services that are offered and their cost; the delivery of an efficient and accessible service; the protection of personal data; and robust measures to prevent fraud and scams.
These are already addressed by the ODA Code of Practice.
We are always interested in talking to new potential Franchisees.
