home1Retail Services & Design was established in the early 1990’s as a consultancy embracing all things retail from property to planograms including business viability studies and store operations.

Over the years involvement in retail licensing has grown to such an extent that a new division of the group  Licensing Solutions – has been created to offer a fresh new approach to licensing opportunities in the retail sector by Chris Mitchener and his team.

In association with Hook & Partners of Canvey Island a full range of licensing services are available to our clients based on a menu driven list of services, from free advice over the telephone to a virtual turn key new application process where the only thing you have to sign is the cheque !…

Our retail licensing pedigree is second to none having worked with many independent and corporate clients over the years, while spearheading the growth of licensed forecourts with an innovative approach to applications resulting in a personal success rate of over 99% for Chris out of more than 1250 forecourt applications that he has made.

home2Our central office is near Southampton in Hampshire with administrative support also available in Canvey through the offices of Hook & Partners whilst our advocacy team is spread across the country and able to deal with new applications should they go to hearings. With the local offices of our team also available for those important one to one meetings when a phone call is not sufficient a strong support service is available for any eventuality.

With the creation of Licensing Solutions this innovative approach to retail licensing and its opportunities is set to continue with Chris acknowledged as being at the forefront of licensing application initiatives and one of the leaders in his field – and David Hook and the advocacy team are no couch potatoes either!
