With an established market now growing due to technical advances allowing for petrol, Diesel and fuel injection engines to be converted, the timing is perfect to join this exciting and rewarding industry.
EcoTec was launched in West London during 2011 and after establishing itself as an expert in its field, two successful pilot franchises were established and now after a period of reviewing and refining, EcoTec are offering franchises across the UK.
Franchisees trade from fully fitted out modern, clean conversion centres. The business model works in units as small as 1,500 square foot, which means it is suitable as a stand alone business or as a bolt business within an existing garage.
Ecotec offers 3 levels of conversion systems to suit all budgets, including EcoTec’s own branded units to the domestic and commercial markets as well as servicing and parts supply.
Your business case will be based upon just 3-4 conversions per week which should generate around £18,000 per month so, it’s easy to see the potential in this tried and tested sector.
A typical conversion costs around £1,200 and generates a 50% gross margin. Each conversion takes less than a day. So, with 4 conversions per week the resulting gross profit is around £9,000 per month!
The USP of this franchise is there are no Royalty payments
YES, ITS COMPLETELY ROYALTY FREE
Actual earnings depends on your location costs and also the number of technicians employed. Ecotec’s central support is a key ingredient in your success. For example, in addition to exclusively using our own branded equipment our Head Office carries out all your procurement for you, ensuring you get the best rates and allowing you more time to focus on your business.
Once your centre is established you can expect to have a lucrative business with demand all year round followed up by a repeat business model as a result of the ongoing servicing requirements from all of your customers.
Your training will commence with a 5/10-day (depending on experience) induction course in Europe, at our technical partner’s specialist training centre.
