Franchisee Role: One-van operation but with scope to become a multi-van management franchise
Annual Turnover: £300k – £500k
Few franchises offer such an opportunity for growth as this home-based Shuttercraft business, surrounded by the very wealthy home-owners of Cambridge who’d appreciate its premium products.
For the number of households in this already prime area is set to DOUBLE in the next 18 years under plans by the city and district councils to provide homes for the rapidly growing workforce.
The current owner has helped build the business to the point where it can be run as a true management franchise by employing and sharing sales and fitting teams and putting more vans on the road.
Being able to reach those untapped parts of the market should prove highly lucrative for the new owner who, freed from the day-to-day, can work on the business instead of in it.
The already impressive turnover should be viewed as a mere starting-point, as the mostly AB home-owners in a prime slice of Eastern England including Huntingdon, Ely, Saffron Walden and Newmarket are very much in the market for Shuttercraft’s beautiful creations.
But it’s not just window-dressing. The franchise is backed by Shuttercraft’s Head Office team, impressive marketing support, and a proven business formula that shows the way to growth and more growth.
Shuttercraft Cambridge supplies window shutters and blinds to the house-proud and aspirational of Cambridgeshire.
Run as a one-van operation but with scope to become a multi-van management franchise, its products are sought-after by a population that can easily afford them.
The business has little serious competition in its territory, and it has the advantage of its products being seen as something of a status symbol.
Growth on a plate for the right franchisee who wants to turn this one-van business into a multi-van operation ready to satisfy the ever-growing demand for its premium products from the proud home-owners of Cambridgeshire who have the money to indulge their good taste.
