The majority of people looking to run their own business consider franchising so that they can control their own destiny. A large part of this is to enjoy your own personal time and space and to relish your environment and surroundings. Signs Express' latest high-performing business for sale has both.
A fantastic opportunity for a well-established lucrative business is for sale in the picturesque area of Lancashire. This market-leading franchise has the perfect mix of being a proven, sustainable business in a thriving sector along with fully equipped production premises, staff and the stunning location to match.
Not only does this business provide you an incredible investment opportunity, but also the chance to live and work in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Occupying two territories, Signs Express (Lancaster) offers both a diverse and lucrative mix of customers alongside stunning landscapes and a rich English heritage for you to enjoy an excellent standard of living.
If you don’t currently live within Lancashire, relocation could be the answer for you to achieve the optimum work / life balance one strives for. With sites such as the Forest of Bowland, Arnside and Silverdale on your doorstep, lovers of the great outdoors will be spoilt for choice for all manner of outdoor pursuits.
It is also well connected with major cities such as Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds within easy reach, as are the Yorkshire Dales, Peak District and Lake District National Parks.
Lancaster and the surrounding areas are also a wonderful place to raise a family with a number of well-reputed schools that boast an ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted rating such as Lancaster Royal Grammar School and Lancaster Girls Grammar School. Lancaster University is also recognised as one of the top universities in the UK and is also a regular client of Signs Express (Lancaster).
There’s a whole host of cafes, shops and restaurants within Lancaster town centre where a vibrant market is held twice a week. This, along with a strong arts culture, also encourages a real sense of community with the locals known for a warm Lancastrian welcome.
Anne Somers, owner of Signs Express commented:
"Thomas & I moved to Lancaster 20 years ago having no knowledge of the city or the immediate surrounding area. We settled in a lovely village a few miles north of the city where we have brought up our 3 children with the countryside on the doorstep, plus easy access to great schools and only a 15-minute commute via the Lune Valley to the city centre, shops, cinemas, sports centres, theatres and most importantly Signs Express!"
Established in 2002, Signs Express (Lancaster) is an established, ready-made business that will enable a buyer to walk in from day one with no prior sign industry experience required. This exciting business opportunity offers a high-return investment with a diverse, loyal client base and long-standing team of highly skilled, reliable staff.
There are also tremendous growth areas still to be explored within the territories which the dedicated UK Franchise Support Centre will help you realise.
Thomas Somers, owner of Signs Express (Lancaster) commented:
"We have grown by 10-15% in recent years and it shows no sign of declining. If anything, we are growing faster than ever with 34% year to date. We have traditionally done little pro-active marketing, so there is massive potential that is currently untapped."
