Harrisons Carpet & Flooring Christchurch Territory Urgent Sale - Tabak - Christchurch Business Sale Brokers

This is a very well established territory with annual sales circa $1.2m + GST. The business is priced to sell, as the vendor has other plans for next year, albeit the asking price of $95k does not includes the vehicle, signage, or racking. A new vehicle will need to be purchased or leased, whilst a full set of samples will be supplied by the Vendor.

The Buyer

The keys to success with this franchise is people skills and a liking for sales. Most leads are provided by way of franchisor driven advertising, and success is simply leveraged by presenting products & solutions at the clients’ home and closing the sale. A good retail person or customer service person will excel in this role, (and probably more than double their income!!) with all training provided by the franchisor. The only requirement is an empathetic personality and/or simply being “a people person”.

A well-defined territory that includes over 50,000 households and most sales are after-market, A dynamic, proven and trusted franchisor (winners of Readers Digest Most Trusted Brand award), excellent systems and a compelling opportunity are available for the right buyer!

Harrisons Energy Leading Solar Franchise; Proven Systems; - Tabak - Christchurch Business Sale Brokers

This business is trading strongly and the current franchisee is simply seeking a change of direction, and there are significant opportunities to grow this business and/or improve margins.
The Harrisons Solar franchise model in Canterbury is now fully mature, with 4 franchisees in Christchurch and 1 in Timaru. The future likelihood is that the only way in with a Harrisons franchise is to purchase an existing territory, which provides opportunity to add real value to your business.

Benefits of Ownership

Flexibility – the franchisee enjoys flexibility around what hours and days they work, so they optimize their lifestyle. Create longer weekends; attend family functions etc. You still work hard – but when you want to……

Hot Leads – no cold calling required although business development is encouraged. Harrisons provide qualified inbound leads i.e. prospects that have invited you to their home to quote and provide solar solutions.

Installation is contracted out, so you do not have to be an electrician – but you do need to understand the principles of solar and the cost-benefit analysis of your offering.

Sales & Installation - - Tabak - Christchurch Business Sale Brokers

This business currently services a niche market in the mid-range and above new home build or renovation. This business model has been proven over many years and this is the second time Tabak have had the pleasure of bringing it to the market in the last 18 years. Reason for sale is quite simply – retirement! Key business attributes include:• Clients are primarily residential builders (and their customers)
• The business is likely to achieve $2.0m + GST sales this financial year
• H1 sales are well ahead of last year, with increased gross margins
• Owner only works 25-30 hours per week supporting his very capable operations team
• Market leading position within its niche

The current owner performs a variety of admin & support functions to assist his team, and they are held responsible for their own areas. Critical roles include that of the Ops Manager who has been with the business 16 years; a Project/Sales Manager (8 years +) and several experienced installers.

This is primarily a sales business; albeit it would help if the new owner appreciated new homes; enjoyed reading plans and/or is comfortable in a measure & quote environment. The bespoke software inherent within the business is also a critical contributor to the business success and is a hugely valuable asset of the business.
