Body of advert
This Franchise site was ‘purpose built’ over 4 years ago and occupies an impressive 809 sqm plot. Vehicle access is via a private drive to the side of the building with car parking spaces allocated and room for delivery vehicles to access the warehouse at the rear. It has excellent main road/high traffic flow frontage and there are plenty of public parking spaces also available within walking distance, so even on the busiest of days customers will rarely be inconvenienced.
The main aspect of this business is the beautifully appointed 260 sqm showroom with clean, modern and welcoming displays stocking a vast selection of tiles, bathroomware and stone products. The owners have worked hard to create an offer that is focussed wholly around quality and providing ‘creative’ solutions. As such, there is little real competition with other businesses in this arena choosing to focus more on the budget market.
There is a significant opportunity for the new owner to further develop the ‘trade’ side of the business. The current owners acknowledge that this market is significant and largely overlooked at the moment.
Stock replenishment is easy and timely, with the Franchisor holding and supplying stock from a centralised warehouse facility in Brisbane. Bathroomware suppliers freight directly to store and large customer orders can be organised and despatched directly to site.
