Take a stroll down any residential area today and there is a very good chance that you will see the work of a Countrywide Signs franchise owner. The UK’s best known estate and letting agents board contractor is responsible for the erection, servicing, and maintenance of ever-present ‘For Sale’, ‘Sold’, and ‘To Let’ signs across the country.
Countrywide Signs has been providing this service to agents since 1998 and has a network of over 60 franchisees nationwide. Countrywide Signs is a multi-van management franchise. This franchise is rare in that the business model actively encourages franchise owners into a situation where they 'work on their business' rather than being stuck 'working in the business.
The Countrywide Signs service is as simple as following the proven system to erect, maintain and take down estate agent's sign boards.
Countrywide Signs is the market leader as the only company in the industry to have attained the ISO9001 quality standard.
Countrywide Signs is a unique business in that the management team is made up of the company's most successful franchisees.
Yes, you read that correctly! The entire management team is made up of the top performing franchisees, each having built up their own highly successful local Countrywide Signs office.
The Countrywide Signs business model has two aims; to generate cash flow to support your immediate lifestyle, and grow as an asset to provide you with a long-term return on your investment.
Unlike most franchises the Countrywide Signs model focuses on taking you to a point where you can 'work on', rather than 'in' your business. Read More
“My business is on track to generate well in excess of £750,000 this year, with the high profit margins I was looking for as well as being flexible. This is the perfect franchise for those who are hard working and want a business that is reliable and easy to run.”
Anthony WilliamsFranchise Owner
“We attended our first regional meeting recently and found meeting the other local franchise owners really interesting. There is a very supportive culture and people have been happy to share experiences and business systems they find useful. It was also exciting to hear about new technology developments which will be available to use soon.”

“Investing in Countrywide Signs was a lot less daunting than the prospect of setting up my own business, I felt that I had support every step of the way and a guaranteed territory which I could use to my advantage. What really appealed to me about Countrywide Signs was that they were a van based company and the fact that I could take control of my workload. This opportunity has given me the independence and the courage to go further and progress professionally that the retail career couldn’t.”
“ Customers can be pretty unforgiving – you need to bring you’re ‘A’ game right from the start. But if you’re not afraid of hard work, you won’t regret making the leap. I know I don’t” “The support and training has been second to none. I recently took part in a webinar which provided some useful tips and ideas that I’ll be implementing from the off. But really it’s the whole package that attracted me – the people and their approach. They’re not afraid to keep things simple. And after 25 years of working with one of the biggest organisations in the world, believe me, that’s been incredibly refreshing. I’m excited for about the future.”
