The Maidstone franchise opportunity is an established and profitable business covering an area from Maidstone, along the M20 corridor and also covering Sittingbourne and Faversham. There are around 140 regular repeat customers from road haulage services, car dealerships and recycling businesses, who have been buying Autosmart products for between 5 and 20 years.
"I'd been driving heavy goods vehicles for over 15 years before I started my own Autosmart franchise in 2005.
"I've loved my time as an Autosmart franchisee and haved loved the independence of being my own boss. It's this aspect of the business, the independence, that I have loved the most and it is for this reason that I am now looking to pursue another business interest. I will be sad to say goodbye to all my customers, they are a great bunch and will give the new incoming franchisee an excellent head start!"
With an exclusive territory you will be the only supplier of Autosmart products to customers in this area and there is substantial potential to grow the business further. Every business has something to clean, so current and potential customers include almost any business you can think of.

As well as supplying customers such as those above, Autosmart’s national accounts such as A Plant, Enterprise Rent a Car, Motorclean and British Telecome are all in the Maidstone area and are regular repeat customers.
