REF 7561 – Leasehold Franchise Sign Makers
Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this leasehold franchise sign makers located in Bromborough, Wirral.
Signs Express was established by our client in this bustling area of Bromborough, Wirral in 1999. This franchise is part of a 60 centre strong network of Signs Express businesses and the franchise offers ongoing support and training via a dedicated UK franchise support centre. The business offers a wide range of professional sign making services including signs and graphics, engraving, vehicle wraps, banners, exhibition displays, window graphics and much more. It has become very well known and has a strong base of regular customers in place as well as benefitting from a huge amount of additional trade generated by word of mouth recommendations. Our client has ensured the business has an excellent reputation and superb reviews are noted on Google and Facebook. Signs Express has a comprehensive website in place.
Signs Express occupies a prominent industrial trading position within a busy and well linked area of Bromborough. The area is densely populated commercially with neighbouring businesses including independent retailers as well as large multiples such as Kwik Fit and Howdens. The area is well linked by the M53 with very strong public transport links and parking is available immediately outside the property.
Reason for sale
The business is ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator but due to our client’s retirement, the business is offered for sale. This presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level.
The building is available on a Full Repair and Insure lease (FRI lease). This is the most common form of commercial lease. The current lease is a ten year lease which began in 2019 at a cost of £260 per week.
The business operates with our two clients in employment supported by one part time and four full time members of staff.
Signs Express has traded solidly since opening and our client has established a strong repeat customer base. Accounts for year ending 30th September 2020 show annual turnover of £347,818 and gross profit of £256,988. Full financial information is available upon request.
The business currently benefits from Small Business Rates Relief. Purchasers should enquire with relevant local authorities to confirm the rates payable.
This long established franchise business occupies an enviable trading position in a highly sought after area of Merseyside. Our client has secured a strong customer base and exceptional reputation. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with the introduction of new services and a strong marketing drive. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Early viewings are strongly advised.
