Business Description
An exciting opportunity to take over a profitable business with enormous growth potential, with three purchasing options tailored to your ambition: trade across either Birmingham North, Birmingham South, or the entire city

About the business
There are three investment options depending on the scale of your ambitions. The attached map highlights the Birmingham North territory in green; and the Birmingham South territory (around Solihull) in red.

Buyers can choose to purchase either trading area, or combine them into one large territory and grow to a turnover exceeding £250,000 (based on figures being achieved by other Countrywide Signs franchisees in territories of similar demographics).

The current owner is selling because he does not wish to pursue multi-van expansion, preferring to be an owner-operator. That means there is outstanding potential for a new owner with the drive to expand in both existing and untapped local markets, adding more vehicles to their business as they grow turnover and profit – with our full support, experience and guidance as they do so.

Both North and South territories are trading very profitably, with year-on-year turnover growth in 2017 of 13.2% and 12.4% respectively. The combined territory turnover growth is over 26%. All this has been achieved without increasing the number of agents on the books, highlighting the outstanding opportunity to drive turnover to £250,000 and beyond.

The territory has the capacity to support a four-van operation (based on similar demographics in other Countrywide Signs franchise territories), with profit margins around 50% (figures proved through the performance of our other franchisees).

The business should be run from the new owner’s home, minimising current operating costs and maximising profit margins.

In addition, there is huge potential for extra revenue streams to be added to existing operations: Countrywide Signs also offer commercial signs for local businesses, as well as sponsorship boards for events. These are proving lucrative for other franchisees who have diversified their income streams.

All the ingredients are in place to expand substantially through new services and by extending current services provided to more estate agents.

Investment Options
The Birmingham North territory is priced at £25,000, plus a franchisee fee of £26,950 + VAT.
The Birmingham South territory is priced at £35,000, plus a franchisee fee of £26,950 + VAT.
The price for both territories combined is £60,000, plus a franchise fee of £36,950 + VAT.

Full financial and operational details will be provided to serious buyers.

About Countrywide Signs
Countrywide Signs has been providing board erecting and maintenance services to estate agents since 1998 and has a nationwide network of franchisees. This is a multi-van management franchise with a business model that actively encourages franchise owners to work ‘on their business' rather than simply ‘in the business’.

The Countrywide Signs service is as simple as following the proven system to erect, maintain and take down estate agents' sign boards, with a bespoke online system that simplifies operations and minimises admin. We are the only company in the industry to have attained the ISO9001 quality standard.

As well as estate agency boards, franchise owners have the opportunity to carry out commercial signage work, including hoardings, car parks, sponsorship boards and much more!

This business comes with a full and comprehensive training package to make running the business easy for the new owner, including all tools, the van, specialist financial support and systems training. There will also be a month’s crossover period working with the current business owner to ensure a smooth handover process.
