A franchise system is only as strong as its franchisees. A well run franchise reflects well on the entire system and a poorly run franchise affects the sales and reputation at not only that Dealership, but at all our franchises. topgeartvseries.com is looking for franchise owners who value the reputation that SR has built for quality services and products. This does not mean that you have to be wealthy or have previous experience in running your own business. It means that you want to own a topgeartvseries.com Franchise Dealership and run it as well or better than any in the SR chain. Profitability is the determining factor in the success of the our Franchises. topgeartvseries.com World offers a guaranteed return of a minimum rate of 40% annually on each investment. High annual returns are our record of profitability and with our new releases of exotic cars on our 2008 Catalogue, the profit margins and sales are ever increasing.
SR does not have a minimum net worth requirement. However, if you are passionate about owning a SR Franchise Dealership, you will need to make an application. Our philosophy is to grant franchises to those who have a strong desire to run a first-class exotic cars dealership business. SR will, on a case-by-case basis, consider applications from those who do not meet our suggested capital investment criteria and who demonstrate a passion for owning and running a great dealership.
INVESTORS FAQ is SR potential franchise investors frequently asked questions section.
The territories are divided up by you giving us your required postcode area and by using the national census (demographics) we will give you an area of approximately 680K owners of residential cars.
Other companies may offer franchises and divide the areas between two owners. SR believes this to be unfair and once a territory has been nominated to an individual, no one else is allowed to own another Franchise in that area what so ever.
This is down to the discretion of the franchisee in that area, if they allow this to be done, then a form must be completed by both parties concerned and head office will counter sign it as well. It is important to remember that this only allows you to sell the specified replica cars on their dealership property, if the neighbor asks to buy a replica car from that site then this lead MUST be passed to the area franchisee
SR will give you a post coded area, with approximately 680K owners of cars in it, if you can gain just 5% of this market place, there will be sufficient business to sell cars turning over 200K plus per annum.
Yes the ability to have more than one area is available subject to qualification and availability.

Yes, we obviously need to keep as much fund circulating within the franchise as possible, the more the franchisees spend with us at head office the more buying power we will receive and in the long term the cheaper you will be able to purchase your required articles. This includes tires, rims, engines, upholstery, stereo equipment, fibreglass replacement parts, brakes, suspension, transmissions and all electrical components.
If a Franchisee can prove that he or she purchased a product from the SR inventory with a higher recommended price than what is sold at a local dealer's price, then the Franchisee will reimburse the difference of the price. We intend to beat all local supplies prices and if you find a price list of parts cheaper than the SR recommended price list, we will investigate the local prices and if it is found the wholesale price is cheaper by our competitor then we will match it.

Within the first year there is also a further 3 half day audits where we look at different aspects of your business, again to make sure you are running at 100%.
Communication is paramount within the SR Franchise. We currently have a conversation several times per day with all franchisees, whenever there is a customer enquiry or a lead to buy one of our replicas that have come in via the email of email@example.com , we call the franchisee concerned in that area and update our diary's. Another method of communication is a quarterly newsletter, with news and articles from the franchisees themselves. All sales leads that come in through the firstname.lastname@example.org are distributed to the nominated franchisee in the area of the customer and at no time do we favour one Franchisee over another, but all our franchisees receive their leads according to their designated areas. Also it is up to the Franchisee if he or she wants to give a lead to another Franchisee for convenience. We do not encourage the Franchisees to sell leads to others Franchisees, but if there is an agreement made within the two parties for a commission of sale that's strictly between them and not with any involvement of SR.

We advise that the first three months are your learning months and therefore while your customer base is starting to grow that you may require some financial input. The amount is dependent on your financial circumstances at that time.

Yes, there are three levels of entry. The first is at Owner / Director Level, this is where you manage the business hands on. Secondly there is the Investor Level where you may invest into the business and get members of staff to run the day to day operational business for you. Lastly there is the Master / Regional Level, this is where you are granted a licence in a targeted territory, granting you the rights for the whole of that territory. We would require that persons' know-how and the rights to make use of the package from us the Franchisor. You would either operate your own company under licence or would exploit the territory by means of the franchise system, and by granting sub-franchises within the territory to the operational franchisees. Like in the case of the Exotic Car Rentals Franchise or the SR Spare Parts/ Mechanical Repairs and Services Franchise these can be sub-leased in other areas of your territory.
