Benefits of a Resale

Benefits of a Resale: FAQ's

  • Q. What is the difference between a resale and a start-up opportunity?
    Collapsetoggle icon

    A resale opportunity allows you to buy an established business with the opportunity to make a difference from day one, whereas a start-up is taking a vacant territory and creating a new Signs Express centre from scratch (with the support of the Franchise Support Centre).

  • Q. What is included in a resale?
    Expandtoggle icon

    The advantages of a resale include taking on an established business with a proven track record and excellent local reputation. A resale includes the equipment, all assets, employees with skills and experience, customer list and relationships plus all work in progress to kick start your ownership.

  • Q. How much does a resale cost?
    Expandtoggle icon

    Resales vary in cost based on turnover, profitability and assets of each business.

  • Q. How much personal cash investment do I need to buy a resale?
    Expandtoggle icon

    We suggest a minimum of a 30/70 split, meaning you have a minimum of 30% of the sale price in liquid capital to be able to fund the sale, with the remaining 70% being funded by bank loans for example. We have relationships with key high street banks who can support you with funding if required.

  • Q. I don’t have experience in the signage industry, is training provided?
    Expandtoggle icon

    Yes, full and extensive training is given to all new franchisees over a four-week period, plus handover and ongoing support from our Franchise Support Centre team.

  • Q. I’ve sent in an enquiry, what’s next?
    Expandtoggle icon
    1. We’ll be in touch to arrange a short introductory call with you. This gives us a chance to understand what it is that you’re looking for, what your business experience is and where your skills lie, what your goals are for the future and so we can give you a detailed overview of Signs Express.
    2. Following this, if both parties are happy to proceed, we’ll send you the confidential prospectus for the centre you are interested in, 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 a couple of our centres to get a real feel for what you’re looking to invest in!
