Join the leading management franchise opportunity servicing agency ‘for sale’ boards and other signage
As the UK’s leading estate agency sign erecting company, Countrywide Signs can help you start and grow a profitable, multi-van business in your local area using our proven model and systems which provide outstanding benefits:
- Regular national accounts income, including the biggest online estate agents
- Flexible investment levels: owner-operator, multi-van or management business
- Guidance from a franchisor team who were all franchisees themselves
- Build your own business and an asset to sell in the future
- Proven business model that scales to 7+ vans
- The leading online board management system
The scope is huge: you only have to look around to see the number of estate agency and business signs, they are everywhere! We have strong relationships with both traditional and online agents, and our national account work – which is passed onto local franchise owners in their territory – increased by 30% last year.
Our comprehensive training package, launch programme and ongoing support structure means you’ll join the 96% of Countrywide Signs franchise owners who make a success of their business – one of the best records of any UK franchise network.
The Countrywide Signs business model has two aims: to quickly generate cash flow to give you the lifestyle you want, and to grow as an asset to sell in the future, providing you with a long-term return on your investment. How quickly you get to this point is up to you…
On average our franchise owners enjoy 60-65% profit on their turnover with a single van operation, and maintain high-profit margins as their business grows to include multiple vans. With each Countrywide Signs van averaging £5,000-£6,000 per month in turnover, the potential returns are substantial!
Expansion brings significant rewards – we have several franchise owners operating 7+ vans who enjoy turnover of £500,000+ per annum, with our top performer running multiple territories punching to break £1M next year!
Countrywide Signs offers exclusive territories, with a choice of size and investment levels for new start-up businesses:
- Owner-operator - One-van territory, 100,000 properties, £21,500+VAT
- Multi-Van Business - Two-van territory, 150,000 properties, £26,050+VAT
- Management Franchise* - Four-van territory, 3000,000 properties, £34,950+VAT
* Even with a multi-van or management franchise,
you can start with one van and build up to a second van around 12 months later.
Established Businesses for Sale
In addition to new starts, existing Countrywide Signs franchises become available to purchase when current franchise owners are ready to realise their investment and sell their business. These resale opportunities come with established clients already in place, so you can start making money from day one, nurturing your existing client list while building new business.
As a longstanding, proven and ethical franchisor, our business model is approved by the major banks so you can borrow up to 70% of your total investment, subject to status. The initial deposit paid by incoming franchise owners includes the services of Franchise Finance, a highly-respected company with a very strong track record of securing loans. Everything a franchise owner needs to get started and build their business is included in your investment.
