You’ll only sell your business once…
…so make sure you get the best price 

Have you thought about your exit strategy recently? Any franchisor, or business owner for that matter, considers their end game every now and then. But do you know how, and when, you can sell your business?

Like you, I’ve been there, and it took me years to find the right method. But just recently I sold Dream Doors, the brand I started in 1999 and spent 20 years building until it became the UK’s number 1 kitchen makeover company.

And just like you, I knew I could only sell my business once. So, I had to get the maximum return for all of my efforts. To achieve the same for your business, I strongly urge that you contact me today.

Find out how I got the best sale value for my business

Having sold my business, I’m now set up for life – but I’m not ready to retire just yet. I want to share my experiences with a select number of franchise brands, and help you avoid the kind of costly pitfalls I encountered. If you’re interested in benefitting from the best guidance, experience and support available, from someone who has been there and seen it all before, let’s arrange a phone call this week.

I know what it’s like to be a franchisor. I understand the challenges, and I’ve overcome them all. After 20 years of hard work, and clearing every hurdle put in my way, I sold Dream Doors – and for much more than I could have dreamed of when I started out back in 1999. Contact me today to find out how I did it, and how I can help you get the best price for your business.

How I built and sold the UK’s number 1 kitchen makeover company

And even if you’re not ready to sell yet, there are many other ways I can help you get the best out of your business. Whether it’s building and managing a network, or driving change to dramatically boost your profits, I’ve done it all before. And the results speak for themselves; I started Dream Doors with just £500 and when I sold the company it had a national network and annual sales in the tens of millions.

If you’re looking for a non-executive director, a mentor, or someone who can help you achieve your dream, I can get you there.

If you’re at a crossroads in your brand’s development, and constantly facing challenges, I’ll help you overcome them. 

And if, like me, you’ve always wanted to exit your business at some point for the highest amount possible, then let me show you how I achieved it.

I’m looking to work with a limited number of around five franchised businesses – this exclusivity means I am truly able to implement change, drive success and help you make the most that you can from the sale of your business.

Working together is the way to achieve maximum value for your business. It took me years, and several false starts to find the perfect method to sell a franchise brand here in the UK today. So, don’t waste the time and money trying yourself, just contact me today to start a conversation.
