Established for over 30 years, this franchise opportunity offers solid foundations and is ideal for a new business owner who can focus on growth and development
Positioned to the west of Aylesbury town centre, Signs Express Aylesbury is a modern 1,700 sq ft unit based on a busy industrial park and is fully fitted with all the equipment required to the highest specifications. With a wide-ranging territory of over 11,000 businesses, in addition to Aylesbury, the centre services areas such as Buckinghamshire, Thame, Berkhamsted, Tring, Tetsworth and Princes Risborough.
Operating for over 12 years under the current owner, with a skilled, experienced team in place, the centre is currently seeing strong and steady business growth. It is currently performing at over 80 per cent growth compared to the previous year, showing great future potential.
The centre has a loyal and diverse customer base, working with many local and national companies across multiple industries, including professional, construction, education, local authority, hospitality and more. Priding itself on reputation and quality, the centre benefits from word-of-mouth recommendations offering stability and potential from day one.
Signs Express Aylesbury’s current business owner, Phil Harris, says: “With over 12 years being part of the Signs Express network, for me, the biggest benefit is the brand. Established for over 30 years, the brand has meaning, it has trust and a great reputation which has allowed me to successfully build upon my business and turn it into the successful operation it is today. Being part of a trusted network also offers me the support of the franchise support centre, offering open forums tackling real-life day-to-day subjects, PPC campaigns, marketing support and experienced team members acting as a sounding board as and when needed.”
The signs and graphics industry offers a diverse and wide-ranging mix of projects, meaning no two days are the same, offering opportunities to get involved in a broad spectrum of areas from production and design to sales and marketing.
“With a solid team in place and a loyal customer base, my work allows me to have the perfect work-life balance which is really important. Over the past few years, despite turbulent times, the business has gone from strength to strength which has put me in a good position for retirement. As I now look to step away from the business, I’m confident that the centre can continue to grow under new ownership, with the potential to take the business to the next level,” continues Phil.
