Australian Franchise News – 09-12-09
Successful Australian retail franchise, Howards Storage World, has arrived in the UK and is set to offer a unique business opportunity for entrepreneurs.
The company, which opened its first UK store in Scotland in October, offers hundreds of clever and innovative products and solutions to reorganise and revolutionise the home, stocking quality own branded products as well as renowned international household names.
Established in 1998, Howards Storage World has enjoyed a strong growth with 64 stores in Australia and 19 others internationally, including New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, Dubai and Ireland.
Managing Director and Master Franchisee for the UK, Martin Brown, is confident that the Aussie winning formula will be a hit with UK consumers and be of interest to people looking to start their very own franchise.
He said: “When I was looking for a new business opportunity I was bowled over by the Howards Storage World concept, it really does offer something different for UK consumers. We are a storage and organisation specialist, focusing on high quality, differentiated ranges complemented with outstanding customer service.
“I am keen to grow the Howards brand in various locations across the UK and I am interested in hearing from possible franchisees looking to invest in their own Howards business. All you need to have is a ‘can-do’ attitude, understand good customer service and be passionate about running your own business and we will help you do the rest.”
The growing ‘lack of space’ in the home has driven the popularity and growth of Howards Storage World with stores helping provide customers with a ‘place for everything’.
The Howards Storage World franchise fee is £25K and would require a further investment of around £200K+, depending on the property deal. Ideal store size is around 300 – 500sq m in locations with a pull of around 300,000 people.
