Smoothing the transition to being your own boss with Countrywide Signs

A proven business model to becoming an operations manager, making transition from the Forces to franchising, and the opportunity to be an owner-operator or grow a larger business: Countrywide Signs is the ideal business opportunity if you’re due to leave Service in 2019.

The franchise involves managing for sale and to let boards for local estate agencies in your area. A van-based business, if you’re an owner-operator you’ll be out and about every day rather than stuck in an office. If you choose to expand and manage a team of drivers instead, they’ll complete the daily jobs while you focus on business development and growth.

This is a thriving market: because you’ll work with lettings agents as well as property sellers, demand is high whatever the economic conditions – this has already been proven during the financial crash in 2008, when our franchisees continued to grow their businesses.

You’ll enjoy market-leading technology which makes it easy for your customers to place their orders and track their boards, at the same time as simplifying the administration required to run your business.

A single van franchise can generate more than £70,000 turnover annually, with strong profit margins.

Personal experience helps you make the move

Countrywide Signs Depot and Operations Manager, Rob Price, knows exactly what it’s like to hit civvy street – and the challenges it can bring. Rob says: “I was a Master Sergeant in the US Armed Forces for over 20 years, and a combat veteran in Afghanistan. I was a specialist for most of my career, but it can be difficult when you leave. It can feel like you’re on your own.

With our franchise, that’s never the case. If you want to be your own boss this is a great opportunity to use the organisational skills you’ve learned from your time in the Military. The potential for making money is limitless; it’s really up to how ambitious you are. And there’s so much experienced support available from our head office to help you move into business for yourself.

It will be a smooth transition. With financial support available and investment starting at under £15,000, this is a low cost, high reward business. We know that people from the Military are going to set their goals high. We want proactive people who are looking to achieve their goals on leaving the Forces. The potential for them is enormous.”

Rob adds: “We’re reaching out to those men and women looking for a smooth transition from the Military. If that’s you, then come and talk to us. It could be the best move you make.”
