Description

Buy Two established territories for Far less than what it costs for just one new territory; this has existing long-term customers, an operating physical plant, trained employees, existing sales, positive cash flow. A "diamond in the rough" exceptional opportunity for the innovative entrepreneur!

This full-service franchise sign operation uses the latest technology and highest quality products to produce custom signs for their diverse business and institutional clientele. It has the advantage of a high-profile, well-respected, nationally-recognized franchise brand, and thousands of loyal long-term customers based on over 20 years of successful business excellence in the same locale. The physical plant and retail outlet is located in northern Alameda County, but the franchise also includes a San Francisco market and the right to open a retail outlet in San Francisco!

Management has implemented state-of-the-art software to streamline order entry, bookkeeping, and project management.

The customer database contains over 4,000 contacts, many in major national corporations and public institutions; an aggressive pro-active outside sales approach to these established customers should reap immediate substantial return to the bottom line.

This shop can custom produce and/or supply any type of sign, including: Banners, Box Signs, Channel Letters, Custom Graphics, Custom Logos, Digital Graphics, Signs, Directory Signs, Individual Letters, and more. In addition, it offers a complete line of ad specialty items and trade show exhibit materials. And, the franchisor maintains a comprehensive 100+ page website for the franchisee for e-commerce and online ordering.

All equipment is well-maintained and in fine operational shape. The purchase price includes the franchise transfer fee and extensive training (five weeks). The franchise offers national exposure and ongoing support, guidance, and continuing education.

The full-time production staff is eager to stay in place and continue to make this business a success.

Specific financial details will be available to a serious prospective buyer. Sales are verifiable through the franchisor's royalty records. (Buyers may make their own independent determination of cash, credit card, and check sales.) The current owner wishes to re-locate out of the area for other business ventures. The price includes the franchise transfer fee and comprehensive training by the franchisor.

A similar new franchise would cost a buyer an investment of approximately $225,000 or more to start from scratch, but this is TWO FRANCHISE TERRITORIES!! So, a $275-$300k value! For far less than half that amount, you buy an established, ongoing business --- state-of-the art equipment, 24+ years of market presence, trained employees, existing customers, and immediate positive cash-flow.

Company Facilities and Operating Hours: The store's operating hours are Monday to Friday 9 am to 5 pm. The store rents ~1650 sq ft of retail space in northern Alameda County. The current rent is approximately $1,800 per month.

The Transaction: The reason for sale is the seller's desire to re-locate out of the country. The owner would agree to stay for a brief reasonable transition time at buyer's option. The asking price is $109,000, this includes all assets, inventory, franchise transfer fee, and complete franchisor training of new owner.
