Read on for a full breakdown of the legal process...

    2. Following this, if both parties are happy to proceed, we’ll send you the confidential prospectus for our Huddersfield centre which gives you more financial information and information specific to the centre (following a signed NDA).
    3. We would then invite you to attend one of our Interactive Discovery Days at Signs Express (Twickenham) where you can have a tour of our company owned centre, see demonstrations, meet some of the team and have an open and honest conversation about how the business works.
    4. Again, if both parties would like to proceed, we’d then invite you to speak to our network and visit our Huddersfield centre to get a real feel for what you’re looking to invest in!
