Franchise resales available in sunderland and swindon

Resales are a natural part of franchising as branch owners may have a change in lifestyle or wish to sell of part or all of their branch for a profit after working hard to build the branch up. We currently have 2 resales available - our Sunderland branch which offers a great deal for someone looking for a low cost resale opportunity and a Swindon branch which has previously been part of our very successful pilot branch in Bath.

Franchise resales are lower risk than a completely new franchise as the demand has already been proven and resales often come with existing bookings in place. Because of this they do have a higher start-up cost but the monthly cost is the same as all franchises so you can quickly earn back your initial investment. All franchise resales include the benefits that new franchisees will get and you can read all about this here.

Emma started this franchise in September 2018. At the time she was working part time. Emma worked hard to secure work with a local library and has built up a great reputation with them. Fun Science Sunderland continues to work with this library on a regular basis in school holidays and also runs a weekly after school club at a local school which the school are keen to continue. When full, this after school club generates a turnover of £120 per week. In October, Emma was offered a full time job and a place on a masters programme. Despite hoping to continue running Fun Science, Emma has found running her branch difficult alongside her full time job and masters programme and doesn’t feel that she is running the branch to it’s full potential so has made the desicion to sell it.

Emma says “We have had a lot of interest and comments such as “I haven’t seen anything like this within the area” and “it’s great that you can make science fun for kids!” I have enjoyed working with the children and having fun whilst teaching but there is so much more that can be done, unfortunately I don’t have the time to keep running the franchise to its capacity.  The area covered under the franchise hasn’t been fully covered by us and it would be beneficial to do more advertising within County Durham as we have had people travel to our events from these areas. We do hope someone will be willing to take on this franchise and give it the time that is needed as it’s the children who benefit from this.  Even working full time and studying part time from September to April we earned £2500 from parties and events”.

Emma has done a fantastic job building the branch up and creating a good reputation in the local area but there is much more potential to be explored. Fun Science Sunderland has recently had interest from 2 more schools who would like to run Fun Science clubs. If these were to be taken on by a new branch owner and were full up, they would generate a turnover of £240 per week (£360 per week when added to the existing club). This could then be added to revenue generated from parties, workshops, regular library events, holiday clubs and additional after school clubs.

Fun Science Sunderland has 192 likes on Facebook including 2 5* recommendations and Sunderland pages are viewed on average 15 times per week with 87% of viewers coming from organic search engine listings.

Fun Science Bath is our pilot branch. We have been running successfully for 8 years, mostly covering Bath, Bristol and Somerset. We do not do any advertising in the Swindon area as it is right on the edge of our territory but we do take on bookings from this area as and when we receive them and have built up the reputation of Fun Science in Swindon and to the south of the town. This market is huge and there is potential for holiday clubs, more after school clubs and more parties so we would love to find someone who is local to Swindon to take on the branch and fulfill it’s full potential.

We currently have an after school club running once a week at a school in Swindon. This club is fully booked and has a waiting list. We also have a club running once a week at a school in Pewsey which is also fully booked. The revenue from both these clubs is £240 per week in term time. We also have a very popular home education group running in Swindon and this generates an additional weekly revenue of £72 but there is scope to increase the numbers at this group.

In the past year we have run 24 parties in the Swindon/Pewsey/Cirencester area, generating a revenue of £3180. This is all with absolutely no advertising in these areas and only taking on bookings in Swindon and to the south and west of the town. There would be a great opportunity for someone to take on bookings to the north and east of Swindon.

If someone was to take on the Swindon branch, they would automatically receive exclusive rights to the area and would be able to take on our existing clubs and sessions, providing a good income from day 1. Being so close to the Bath branch, the branch owner would benefit from access to cover staff for emergencies.
