Why we bought a franchise resale

Getting shown the ropes is a huge benefit of buying a resale

Steve Windaybank has always wanted to be self-employed but it was knowing what to do and how to do it. Having benefited himself from having health insurance, and having worked with the Bristol WPA franchisee he eventually bought the business from, Steve knew how the WPA franchise model worked and understood the potential of it. When the previous owner came to sell, Steve decided buying an existing franchise with income from day one was the route he wanted to take.

Interview with Barkng Mad franchisee, Perthshire, Clackmannanshire & Stirling

It is an ideal business opportunity for those who want to make a career out of doing something they love, working with pets. In this interview, Isla talks to us about why she bought her Barking Mad franchise, her role as a franchisee, why she loves what she does and why the time is right for her to sell.

Why buy a franchise resale?

You don't always have to start a franchise from scratch; many franchisees are looking to sell their existing franchise. As well as the traditional benefits of franchising, a resale will usually have additional ones such as an existing client base, established presence and revenue from day one. There are many reasons why existing franchises are for sale:

  • The franchisee could be very successful and wants to sell a profitable business - this was their exit strategy from the start
  • The franchisee is retiring
  • The franchisee has realised that the business is not for them
  • The franchisee has other business concerns to concentrate on
  • The franchisee may be relocating
  • The franchisee may need to sell due to ill health
