Following our success in the Lake District National Park, we are offering five brand new Franchise Opportunities.
A brief description of each franchise is listed below. You will be self-employed and own your own business! This is an ‘outline’ of the franchise, covering the main points. A full and detailed contract will be entered into with the successful applicant. For more details, please call us for a chat in the first instance.
1. FRANCHISE ONE - Lake District & Cumbria South and West
2. FRANCHISE TWO - Lake District & Cumbria North and East
3. FRANCHISE THREE - The Yorkshire Dales National Park
4. FRANCHISE FOUR - The North Yorkshire Moors National Park
5. FRANCHISE FIVE - The Peak District National Park
The main points of each available Franchise will be as follows…
You Pay: A “one time only” buy in cost of £20,000 for a five-year contract for a specific ‘territory’. This can be reduced to just £12,000 under certain circumstances (see below).
You Pay: No commission for the first £10,000 of bag moves that we send you.
You Pay: 15% commission to us on each bag that we send you (after the first £10,000 of bag moves are completed).
WE Will: Supply a van (with signwriting) to you free of charge at the start of the contract which will become your property. This will be a pre-used vehicle. Replacement vans will be your responsibility and at your own cost. If you already have your own van, you can reduce the ‘buy in’ cost to just £12,000 with no van supplied by us.
WE Will: Charge our customers £9.00 per bag moved*. This money will be given to you in full at the end of each month when the bookings are completed. Once 1000 bags have been moved, we will take a commission of 15% on all future bags after the first 1000.
WE Will: Supply your uniform free of charge.
WE Will: Supply free of charge, an initial stock of 5000 flyers, 1000 business cards, 1000 luggage tags and a selection of stationery. Replacement stock will be your responsibility and at your own cost but we will supply it to you at our ‘cost price’.
We would be willing to consider a trial ‘ONE YEAR’ franchise for the right person so you could potentially set up your own business under our guidance in for a single payment of as little as £2,400. Please ask us!
*bags booked by holiday ‘agencies’ on the Coast to Coast walk route (C2C) are considerably less than the £9.00 due to negotiated volume business. We will disclose these confidential figures for these bags during the contract period. Bags booked as ‘non agency’ business ARE £9.00 on all routes including the C2C.
