Home Based Lifestyle Business Glasgow Ayrshire Renfrewshire Lanarkshire For Sale

Glasgow, Glasgow City
Asking Price:
£19,995
Turnover:
Under £50K
Net Profit:
Under £50K

A unique opportunity to purchase a rewarding, enjoyable, ready-to-go home based service business organising professional art exhibitions in primary schools and nurseries. It is ideally suited to someone who wishes to work from home during school term-time with flexible hours. Artistic flair is not required – you just have to like the idea of providing a great service to local schools, teachers, parents and children.

This is a well-established franchise business and the area for sale - Images Ayrshire and Lanarkshire - has an eligible customer base of over 400 schools and nurseries. It is being sold as a going concern with current bookings and a strong repeat customer base from which bookings continue to flow.

So how do the exhibitions work? - Each child does a piece of artwork on the free canvas provided by us, we mount and frame the pictures and return with display boards and stage a professional art exhibition in the school, with parents having the option to purchase their child’s picture. Any unsold artwork is taken away and recycled and it is minimal work for the school staff – we organise everything – all the school needs to do is the artwork with the children and we provide teachers notes and samples of artwork to guide them through the process. We provide the exhibition service free of charge to schools making it easy to sell and schools can share in the profits too and use the exhibition as a focal point for their art curriculum. So everyone benefits which is why it has been such a successful formula since 1995.

Framing is quick and easy thanks to pre-assembled frames from our own factory, who also provide all the bespoke stationery as well as a bespoke, easy to use software package which supports all the day-to-day running of the business. Full training and support is provided from the franchisor along with an active online forum of other franchisees.

The sale includes display boards and framing equipment – compressor, tab gun and framing table. You will need a PC and printer and a room or garage to store display boards and stock. A van or car and trailer are needed to transport boards and frames on exhibition days. The current owner has a custom fitted van which is available under separate negotiation.

Unlike other franchises, there are no annual franchise fees and no commissions are payable on earnings.
