The Autoglym franchise opportunity
Autoglym Professional is Autoglym’s premium vehicle care range for the professional valeting and detailing market. Our products have been specially engineered to meet the varying needs and demands of our trade customers.
Throughout the UK and Ireland our extensive network of franchise businesses distribute Autoglym Professional products from their own van based mobile showrooms providing excellent service levels and technical expertise to trade clients the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland. Each franchisee purchases an exclusive geographical territory and develops their business and customer base within this region.
As with any franchise purchase there is an initial capital investment to get the business established. This investment includes your goodwill payment for your business as well as any other operational set up costs – with a minimum start-up cost of £50,000. This investment can vary depending upon the number of sales areas, area size and current business levels within the area.
