Established Autosmart Business for Sale in Watford
The Watford & Hemel Hempstead franchise opportunity is an established and profitable business covering an area from Watford, along the M1 corridor to Hemel Hempstead and across to Berkhamsted. There are around 120 regular repeat customers from road haulage services and car dealerships to food processing plants and manufacturing businesses, who have been buying Autosmart products for between 5 and 20 years.
Current Watford Franchisee Neil Harris Says...
“I’ve been with Autosmart for 12 years and have operated 2 franchise businesses with the company. I started off as the Autosmart franchisee for Sutton Coldfield and then in 2012 I moved to Watford and have been successful in doubling the turnover in this area and developing some great customer relations.
"I’ve loved the life as an owner-operator and being out and about in my shop-on-wheels, however, after 12 years I feel that it’s the right time for me to move on and so I plan to utilise my business skills in another field".
