Phil and Andy have launched Local Appliance Rentals first store in the UK, in Stoke-on-Trent.
Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent franchisees Phil and Andy have jumped at the opportunity to launch Local Appliance Rentals first store in the UK.
"There are 25 outlets in Australia and stores certainly produce the numbers. However as franchisor into a new UK market, we have deliberately and still do encourage operators to run the business first for at least 6-12 months typically.
Once franchisees understand the business well and have built up a solid revenue stream from rental, then it can be very worthwhile to discuss the store options which do mean staff, overheads and greater all round commitment.
The reality is that stores will write 50% more business than an office structure. Stores are great for exposure and can actually become cost effective based on volumes instead of visiting customers outbound.
Anyone interested in our business, especially existing franchisees will be keeping a very close eye on the performance of this store. If these guys can do business with 15-20 walk ins per month over and above the 30+ from our general marketing activities then a store option will soon be realised as a no brainer and you might just see 20 stores open within the next 12 months."
Local Appliance Rentals are hovering around 20 franchisees now and have just had another record month for September making it their 6 month of growth in a row.
Why wait? When you can RENT IT TODAY!
This business really works and everything is in place to help a self starter build a successful business very quickly. Good support network and Franchisor readily accepts constructive feedback to further develop what is a great model. Great first mover advantage in this franchise. This is a genuine opportunity and a great alternative to the ‘rat race’.Carl Windsor - Platinum Territory owner - Scunthorpe
