Our van franchise concept takes the shop directly to the local customer, selling our range of over 200 market leading vehicle cleaning products to the trade.
Jonathan Satchell and his father were the original Autosmart franchisees out on the road in 1979 and wrote the very first invoice for the company. Jonathan is now looking to retire after providing 38 years of fantastic service to trade customers within the Worcester area.
The Worcester patch is rich in industry and covers the M5 corridor from Bromsgrove in South West Birmingham, through Droitwich, Worcester and Tewskbury, but also taking in the Great Malvern area as well as Alcester.
There are around 150 regular repeat customers from road haulage services and car dealerships to distribution centres and manufacturing businesses, who have been buying Autosmart products for up to 38 years.
“My dad and I have had an amazing journey over the last 38 years with Autosmart. We are proud to say that we wrote the first ever invoice for the company and put the first showroom out on the road. I’m now looking to downsize and so I'm planning my retirement.
“I know that whoever takes on my business will get off to a flying start, as they are buying a profitable business with loyal customer base, but also a business that they can expand. We have a strong supply to the road haulage sector, as well as distribution centres, but there is still lots of scope for growth, especially within the workshop, factory and agricultural sectors.”
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.
Typical customers already buying Autosmart products in this area include:
As well as supplying customers such as those above, Autosmart’s national accounts such as Bibby, Mercedes, Motorclean & Dignity Funeral Hire are all located in the Worcester area and are regular repeat customers.
Restocking existing customers will take up around two-thirds of your time each month, giving you lots of time to focus on growing your turnover even further. With over 200 products at your disposal you will be able to meet the cleaning requirements of every company in your territory.
Your contribution to the funding of this very well established and profitable business is £30,000, however, there are different routes into the business depending on what capital you have available.
We will then assist you in raising a business over-draft facility with your preferred choice of bank. The Worcester franchise is already profitable so with your hard work and commitment you should expect to repay your investment quickly and make a great living.
