874 miles is the distance from Land’s End to John O’Groats. It’s also the remarkable distance covered each year if you lay end-to-end all the ‘For Sale’ boards erected by Agency Express franchisees. A truly national coverage!
Agency Express is the only nationwide ‘For Sale’ board contractor. Having experienced outstanding business growth over the last few years, the company now has a network of 89 established franchisees, with top earners turning over in excess of Â£140,000 per year.
Following a busy attendance at the London Franchise Exhibition, the company is looking to extend the network further. “Our exhibition stand was inundated with enquiries from prospective franchisees who were interested in the comprehensive package we offer, as well as the excellent earning potential,” said Stephen Watson, Agency Express founder and Managing Director. “Although we cover most of the UK at the moment, there are still franchise territories available, including some priority areas where business is ready and waiting.”
As a van-based business, franchisees benefit from low overheads, with no rent or business rates to pay, which increases their profitability. The centralised invoicing system is also a real advantage, as it keeps paperwork to a minimum. Add to this the fact that there’s no other national ‘For Sale’ board service, and it’s a winning formula all round.
What can Agency Express offer a new franchisee? For an investment of just Â£14,500 (plus reclaimable VAT), the franchisee receives a 10-year Licence for his own protected territory. The package includes everything necessary to get the business up and running, such as specialist equipment and the deposit paid on a new racked out Renault Master Van, complete with Sat Nav. Prospective franchisees don’t need any experience or business qualifications, as 8 days’ training is also part of the package.
With continued growth in the UK, two franchisees in Southern Ireland and further overseas operations planned in the USA and Canada, the company is setting its sights beyond Land’s End. The growth in turnover means a bright future for Agency Express franchisees, so there’s never been a better time to get on board.
