Metro Rod has announced that a fantastic franchise resale opportunity has become available in Derby.
Metro Rod is a drainage franchise that operates across the UK. The current franchise owners of Metro Rod Derby have decided to sell the Derby location so they can focus on their business and invest back into their remaining territory.
Derby is an exciting area for business, particularly for advanced transport manufacturing. It is home to Rolls-Royce and not far from Toyota Manufacturing UK’s headquarters.
There are currently around 100 existing commercial customers, giving the new owners solid foundations to build robust relationships from the get-go. For instance, it already has long term contracts with Rolls-Royce for tanker and emergency work, and with Royal Derby Hospital.
The Metro Rod Derby franchise was purchased by the current owner in 1998, and as you can imagine, it’s experienced significant growth since. This business now has a turnover of over £365,000. There is plenty of potential for entrepreneurs who are passionate about the Metro Rod brand and want to benefit from the fantastic profits while gaining new contracts.
You’ll need to be able to invest £250,000 in exchange for this territory. But remember, unlike starting a franchise unit from scratch, much of the hard work has already been done for you. In fact, you can make the most of Metro Rod’s technical team, which has years of experience in drainage solutions. Plus, you’ll gain sales and marketing support from its support centre.
You don’t need to be an expert in drainage to be accepted as a franchisee. Having management or small business operation experience is looked on fondly, though.
You can see a more detailed description of the franchise opportunity on its client page.
