A business resale enables you to hit the ground running and to continue an area that is already generating income.
- It is an existing business with an established customer base, and a local reputation
- As an already established business it has a trading history showing potential income, and allowing profits to be generated at an early stage
- An existing business gives you a guaranteed income from day one
- With a resale the business already exists
There is easier access to finance with a resale franchise, as banks like the fact that they can base their lending decisions, not only on the franchise system and your suitability, but also on the trading history of the operating location, making it easier to make financial projections.

My Bark Busters Journey
“Eighteen years ago I found myself job hunting, only to discover that at fifty two I was too old to do anything. A franchise of some sort seemed the obvious way forward but in what field? I looked at everything from carpet cleaning to mobile mechanics. Then I found Bark Busters on Google and thought “you can make a living training dogs?
I phoned head office and had a chat with one of our founders, Danny Wilson, and sure enough was convinced that you can. Danny flew down to Melbourne to “interview” me and half an hour later we shook hands over a beer and off I went on my Bark Busters journey.”
Two weeks of intense training and I was on the ground with my own business. I was as nervous as a kitten conducting my first solo lesson, but it went well and my confidence grew with each lesson. Knowing that I had the support of head office and importantly my fellow franchisees was, and is, invaluable. I have been lucky enough to have a six week holiday in Europe, fully supported by head office and my colleagues. And when I had some serious health issues again everyone pitched in to support my customers while I recovered.
Eighteen years in one job is unusual in this day and age, but I have one colleague who is celebrating twenty-two years with Bark Busters. Why do we stay so long? Because it is satisfying to see that turn around in people and their dogs. Being a Bark Buster is more of a vocation and a lifestyle than a mere job. I still get that buzz when I put on my uniform and head out to another lesson. The people that use our methods are already committed to getting a result, they may ease off after a while and that is why our guarantee is invaluable. Recalls to existing customers are all about putting them back on track, the dog remembers even if the owner doesn’t.
I may be easing back a little by selling one of my territories, but I am still enthusiastic about being a Bark Buster for some time yet.”
