I benefitted from all the existing classes and great local partnerships. Create Club was also established, and I have continued to work with that school, and 5 more, 6 years later!Kat Howard Creation Station Exeter”
Kat Howard, Creation Station Exeter, bought her resale franchise after working for the previous owner. Kat says:
‘I always enjoyed arts & crafts and loved working with children, so Creation Station sounded fab when I applied to work for Erin. I was working for Erin for around a year when she said she was expecting her 3rd baby and that she would be selling the business. I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to run the business myself and I benefitted from all the existing classes and great local partnerships. Create Club was also established, and I have continued to work with that school, and 5 more, 6 years later! It was great to hit the ground running straight after training and my classes were ready to go. The benefits of flexibility have meant I have run my business throughout the pandemic and have welcomed my first baby as well.'
Did you know that seven out of ten franchise businesses acquired between 2020 and 2022 had been previously operating before they were bought?
Buying an existing franchise that has been operating for a period of time is called a ‘Franchise Resale’.
There are many reasons why people decide to sell their franchise. These include; they have a new opportunity, they are relocating, they are looking to retire or there is a change of personal circumstances.
All businesses enjoy a lifecycle. One of the many benefits of running your own franchise is that you can sell your business as an asset when it comes to moving on in the future.
This enables you to enjoy running your business and capitalise on the investment and your hard work in the future when you sell.

The training and ongoing support have been invaluable. Having access to a supportive network means that I always have someone to turn to with questions or concerns.
Avne Wilson, inspires imaginations at Creation Station Sutton Coldfield, found her resale opportunity whilst in another job:
"I found The Creation Station when I was looking for an opportunity that would give me more flexibility to spend time with my family and also allow me to be creative. When I discovered the opportunity to run my own business using an existing customer base, I was thrilled. It was reassuring to know that there was already a community of people who knew about The Creation Station. The training and ongoing support have been invaluable. Having access to a supportive network means that I always have someone to turn to with questions or concerns. I have big dreams for my business, and with the wide range of sessions on offer, I know that families will stay engaged for years. Seeing children grow and develop through the program is a magical experience that fills me with warmth and joy. I am grateful to have a job that provides such fulfilment and satisfaction.
The benefits of investing in a franchise resale.
When you choose to invest in a resale opportunity, you will benefit from years of marketing, customer relations, venues & partnerships. Your business will enjoy greater stability with immediate cash flow, local brand awareness & easier business planning, meaning you get to grow what is already running.
An existing business can demonstrate what it has already achieved. This means that future plans can be based on actual performance. Furthermore, gaining funding is considered even more favourably for a franchise resale than a new franchise.
When you invest in a franchise resale you gain the following benefits:
- Established track record
- Established customer base - The Creation Station model has a lot of repeat customer bookings and you will already have some customers in place
- Increased brand recognition in the area
- Instant cash flow - activities will already be running
- Experienced staff - not all franchises have staff but where there are staff you have experienced staff from day one
- Marketing support - you have access to tried and tested channels
- Reduced Risk - the business has already been operating which helps you further develop the business opportunity
- Support & Training from Creation Station to help you with the sale and getting up and running quickly.
