Harrisons Carpet One
Market Leader; Trading Strongly Proven Business Model
$165,000 - Timaru Region
This Timaru-based mobile carpet sales business consistently makes around $104k per annum to a working owner. The current owners have relocated and whilst they can still service the territory, after 6+ years they believe it is time for an enthusiastic new owner. Harrisons Carpet One are the market leading, nationwide, mobile carpet retail business with nearly 50 mobile showrooms nationwide - and the Timaru business currently services a catchment of over 30,000 households.
In the next several years the business can grow significantly on the back of:
- Regional and GDP growth
- Increasing relationships with builders
- Normal new build work within the South Canterbury region
- Increasing the "close rate" for quoted work
- Improving margins
- Greater networking and business development skills
Sales leads come in by way of the http://www.harrisonscarpet.co.nz website and the 0800 number, and are leveraged from the very strong promotional calendar undertaken by the franchisor. As the new owner, you will visit prospective customers, do a measure & quote (using laser technology with a measuring device and tablet) and ultimately close the sale. The key attribute is for a "people person" with reasonable communication & sales skills, and there are no technical aspects that cannot be easily learned during the training process. No physical installation is required, you simply need to co-ordinate the contracted installers within the region. The banks love this proven business model and are likely to fund at least 50% against the business itself.
Franchise fees are very reasonable and the franchisor also has three regional managers, who proactively support the franchisee network. Harrisons Carpet One are a leading nationwide flooring retailer and the over-riding consideration is "user-pays" so franchisees only contribute to the variable costs directly related to their own sales.
A proven business model with a reputable and growing franchisor - a RECIPE FOR SUCCESS
