The Agency Express Head Office offers a large dedicated support team to provide back up and support to the franchisee network. The profitability of the company is dependant totally on the success of its franchisees and assistance is only ever a telephone call away.
Over 50% of the business enjoyed by our franchisees nationally is with our large corporate customers and sourcing of national account business is a fundamental support function.
Whilst our unique SignMaster on-line board ordering system reduces your administration to a minimum, our Centralised Accounts Department takes care of all invoicing for you. They even chase payments for you, so you don’t have to worry about bad debt and leaves you the time to concentrate on building your business.
The Earning Potential
Each franchise territory is carefully designed to give you the maximum reward for your efforts and to enable you to put additional vehicles and employees on the road as your business expands.
Ultimately, your earnings are determined by your own ambition and there is no upper limit!
Our top franchisees turnover in excess of £160,000, with many others exceeding £100,000 but an established single vehicle operation should turnover in the region of £70,000 which, after expenditure should provide a net profit of approximately £50,000.
