Investment

Buying an Ed’s business can be a sound investment.

When you buy an Ed’s business you are entering into a partnership that has to work for both you and us. The investment level tends to be the initial licence fee plus a vehicle and additional/alternative equipment depending on your set of circumstance. If you nurture and grow your business it will increase in value for when you are ready sell.

  6. An established growing network
  7. A format that you can follow to grow the capital value of your business
  8. The opportunity to turn your business into a management operation

3. Re-sales

A big advantage of joining Ed’s is that you can build a thriving business and when the day comes that you wish to hang up your tools, you have the option of cashing in what you have built rather than just walking away.  You could sell your business to either a new or existing operator who is interested in growing their business.  We have examples of operators doing both and walking away with significantly more money that they invested when they joined Ed’s.  What this means is that you are not just earning a stream of profits from being part of Ed’s but at the end of the day you could have a nest egg to cash in as well.

Another scenario is that once you have an established business, you may want to release some cash but continue on your Ed’s journey.  You could do this by selling part of your business to an existing or new operator. This is called "splitting your business".

Whilst you would ultimately be responsible for the sale of your own businesses, at Ed’s we have lots of experience in this area and can give you guidance on the various selling options, valuing your business and navigating the process of the sale.
