This gives the new owner an ever-increasing pool of potential new business.

The current owner has deliberately resourced the team to handle significant growth in the immediate future. The business is currently administered from a home office with a centrally located store but this arrangement could easily be adapted to suit personal circumstances.

GreenThumb franchisees across the country structure their businesses in a variety of different ways according to their own circumstances. The current owner of this business has chosen to concentrate on sales, marketing and business planning to deliver strong growth but there is opportunity to structure the business differently if required.

In summary, this is a lifestyle opportunity that could be adapted to fit numerous different personal circumstances. So, if you want to buy a thriving, year-round, business in a booming area that has a solid foundation for future growth then do apply for more information.
