I would like to take today to share an update on the business side before I embark on another holiday next week. On the whole things are very good business-wise with both Self Trading and Clearance Catering Supplies both selling out our warehouses of stock, which leaves us open to accept many new offers for clearance stock from within these industries.
We have had a great couple of years buying up large parcels of stock but don’t seem to be able to purchase any more as the recession seems to be having more of an effect for companies now than it ever has. Companies are less willing to part with their excess stock to make room for more they all seem to be holding out with the stock for better money, cracking down on their own sales offering 70-80% off.
We are actively looking for big parcels of stock up to a value of £1million + to refill our shelves as they are currently looking quite sad.
Being quite a diverse business man I tend to be able to cover myself when one side of a business begins to show a sign of shortfall and build up a separate venture to cover myself this way. I am continually finding that online affiliate businesses are ticking over nicely and our launch of YBISWorld in the USA has proven to be a great success with plans to open up offices in the USA in 2014.
Oven King, our newest venture is proving exceptional oven cleaning services in Poole, Bournemouth & Christchruch to be a good opportunity for any budding franchisees, we’ve only recently launched back in May 2013 and have already developed into a fully fledged business with both website and rounded marketing platforms in place leading to steady streams of enquires and bookings being made for our oven cleaning services. We are now even at this early stage considering putting a 2nd van on the road to meet the ever increasing demand. Once we have attained a level of 4 vans on the road then we feel we will be in a position to offer nationwide territories to franchisees with our attractive entry package that is currently being developed in time for this opportunity to become available.
