The business was started 8 years ago by a husband-and-wife team, who had experience in a previous home improvement-related franchise. And they’ve done all of the hard work! Back then, ColourFence was barely known outside of its handful of local franchised territories, most of which were run as a man-in-a-van operation. With plenty of ambition and a willingness to spend money on vital local marketing, ColourFence Dorset and South Somerset took off faster than any previous franchisee. In fact, in the couple’s first few weeks they surpassed most franchisees annual sales at the time!
The business is on the market as the owners are now in a position to retire. They’ve been involved in a few business ventures, all of which have been successful, and most have been within franchising. The sector has been good to them, and through hard work and dedication, they have built a fantastic business to sell on – but one that can be grown even further than the lucrative state it is in now.
It’s a low-overhead business that is run from home. You don’t need any experience in sales or have run a business before, as full training is provided. Plus you’ll benefit from ongoing support from the franchisor – a full member of the British Franchise Association. You also don’t need to be practically minded as you certainly won’t be digging holes or fitting fences yourself. Your role will be customer facing, and then managing your fitting teams who will handle all of the installations. And that’s another advantage in taking over this established and very profitable franchise – there are already experienced and skilled installers adept at fitting ColourFence, making this a total turnkey business.
So, what have the last two years been like for ColourFence? Well, like most companies selling products into the home and gardens, sales haven’t faltered through the pandemic. And the Dorset and South Somerset franchise has had its best year yet, with an annual turnover of more than £600,000. The business is only going to get better too, as more customers – both domestic and commercial – are driven to the company’s fit-and-forget, environmentally-friendly fencing solution!
ColourFence is totally unique to the UK. It's a product that's been proven in Australia for almost 50 years. But it's even more suited to our damp climate, which causes timber fences to rot.
Imagine a garden fence that doesn't degrade, warp or blow over; one that doesn't require any upkeep and is totally maintenance free. Imagine a fence that can heal itself and even withstand gale force winds.
Well, that's exactly what ColourFence is. It's lightweight, high tensile steel fencing that is manufactured here in the UK to fit almost any domestic setting. But this isn't bleak, industrial metal, it's attractive coloured fencing that will replace inferior wooden products.
This is a franchise with no competition too. You’ll exclusively supply a game-changing product that appeals to most homeowners – especially those with gardens. It’s also a solution taken up by schools, caravan parks, car yards, developers, and several other commercial customers.
The chance to take over the ColourFence franchise covering Dorset and South Somerset really is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. There’s over £100,000 in net profit, and that’s after owner’s basic salaries and pension contributions. So, this is a business that can deliver a healthy six-figure annual remuneration and has huge scope to grow from where it is today.
If you’ve been looking for a simple, home-based business providing a unique product that most homeowners need, then this could be perfect for you. Get in touch with ColourFence today to discuss this exciting, high-earning franchise for sale.
