Countrywide Signs Limited

Countrywide Signs

Company Overview

Walk around your local town or village and there’s a good chance that you will see the work of a Countrywide Signs franchisee. We are the UK’s only ISO9001-accredited estate and letting agents board contractor, responsible for the erection and maintenance of ‘For Sale’ and ‘To Let’ signs across the country.

Countrywide Signs has been providing this service to agents since 1998 and has a network of over 60 franchisees nationwide.

We also provide commercial signs of all kinds to businesses, giving franchisees extra revenue streams.

Franchise Overview

We offer a highly flexible opportunity, with different territory sizes according to your ambition: you can invest in one van and scale up as your confidence grows, or hit the ground running with a larger operation by employing staff and running two or four vans from day one.

Our top franchisee is on course to break £1m turnover soon and with great turnover per van and strong profit margins, alongside exceptional technology that provides great customer service and simple business administration for you, the potential is substantial.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

Your daily operations depend on whether you opt to be an owner-operator or a multi-van franchisee.

In a single van business, you’ll be putting up signs yourself, but because our franchise is so flexible you can adapt it to your own circumstances – some franchisees like to leave and return early, others do the school run before they begin.

As a management franchisee, you’ll manage your team to deliver great service while you focus on business development, meeting new agents and winning new business. Flexibility is key – the choice is yours!
