Franchise re-sales

There are occasions where some of our existing franchises wish to exit the business due to retirement or personal reasons etc. Buying an existing business is a great way to get started as there will often be a ready-made portfolio of rental properties as well as a sales pipeline and listings providing income from day one.

In addition, the likely running costs, growth potential and profitability are easier to predict.

Key benefits:

  • Income opportunity from day one
  • Experienced team in place
  • Branded high street branch already exists
