Run Your Own Furniture Repair Business with the Weathersby Guild Franchise
The Weathersby Guild is expanding into the UK and will bring with it a dedicated clientele eager to conduct business with its members. We are seeking a master licensee or area developers.
The Weathersby Guild is a low-investment, low-overhead, home-based, in-home furniture repair model. We are highly specialised to serve the interests of the furniture removal and insurance industries.
We have an extensive and comprehensive dedicated clientele of moving van companies (furniture removal companies) and insurance companies who depend heavily on the Weathersby Guild to handle damages incurred in household goods transportation.
We are a well-known, successful US franchise expanding into the UK with 55 US franchises. The same domestic clients are eager to support a Weathersby Guild presence in the UK.
Our Franchise Package
Our model is centred on running a sound business. While the restoration skills are essential to success, our model is centred on maintaining the excellent relationships we have developed with our clients over the past half-century. As with any business-to-business model, The Weathersby Guild recruits individuals with excellent communication and management skills.
With a Weathersby Guild franchise you will receive:
- Extensive initial one-on-one training in the US
- Training regulated by our extensive and comprehensive manual which includes skills training and college level academics
- Close post-completion monitoring of report quality and craftsmanship
- On-site visits if necessary, from headquarters staff
- Enthusiastic phone support by a master craftsman at headquarters is available for artistic and management advice and direction
All specialty tools and supplies are provided before training is initiated. Most supplies are available through web purchases from Weathersby Guild approved suppliers.
Franchisees are not required to spend a minimum amount in advertising. Much of the advertising is satisfied by the extensive Weathersby Guild network of dedicated clients.
A Weathersby Guild franchise can be scaled to include more extensive operations in addition to in-home services – employees can be added to increase capacity. Our services can extend to the private residential, commercial, and hospitality interests.
At present, the master license fee is £80,000. The present population of the UK should support 15 – 20 franchises at a selling for an initial franchise fee of price of £38,000.
