About the franchise for sale
Asking price: £20,000 Annual Turnover: £80,000 Annual Gross Profit: £50,000 Annual Net Profit: £30,000
This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire an established garden maintenance franchise business (with a regular customer register amounting to approximately £15,000 per annum) in Dartford for £17,500. This represents great value and lower risk for an interested party, given that it is a small amount more than the cost of buying a “start from scratch” Ed’s Garden Maintenance franchise with no customers.
The opportunity has arisen as the result of an Ed’s franchisee wanting to consolidate his high performing business (turnover in excess of £80,000 and Operating Profit (pre depreciation) of £50,000) and focus on a tighter geographic area.
The vendor’s business is based in the Dartford area (including,Swanley and Orpington) and extends to Sevenoaks. The vendor intends to sell the Dartford part of his business and develop his Sevenoaks business. The business for sale will be packaged on the same basis as a new Ed’s Garden Maintenance franchise.
The scale of the business is such that it could be run on your own or with a part time helper. The quality of the customer base reflects the strength of the owner’s overall business, with a mix of residential customers as well as larger care homes, blocks of flats and residents associations. The customer register is fully computerised with full customer history.
The Ed’s Garden Maintenance franchise has low fees and provides a good stream of new customers as well as great online systems which let you focus on delivering the work with minimal administration. Ed’s Garden Maintenance is a strong professional brand and has its own in-house call centre, web site and corporate advertising.
This is a great investment opportunity for the right person and comes with a fantastic lifestyle of being your own boss and reaping full benefit of the effort you put into building your business.
Tools are available separately if required and the purchaser will need a suitable vehicle. Prospective buyers must be professional and fluent in English.
