Head office has instructed it's time to sell! 

With some of their most successful store locations on offer, this is an opportunity not to be missed. 

Howards Storage World is an iconic Australian franchise group that was established in Sydney, NSW. Started in the 1970s by Les and Edda Howard it began franchising in 1997. Today there are over 35 stores nationally. 

At the heart of Howards Storage World is the ‘joy in being simply organised’

With storage solutions for every room, Howards Storage World is a well known retailer that stocks quality brands from Australia and around the world.

This rare opportunity see’s 16 established franchise locations on offer in NSW, ACT and QLD. With prices ranging from $86,000 to $760,000 plus stock. There is a price point for just about any buyer. 

“It's time to get some dedicated owner-operators into these locations”  Listing agent, Michael Newham shares. 

“There's a good selection there. As you can see some are very profitable and others have room to grow”

“This a good opportunity to acquire a franchise that is already under management and become the owner-operator.”

That is a major key to this opportunity - they are already established! 

“The franchisor has been successfully running them as corporate-owned stores for many years and is now ready to offer them to dedicated new owner-operators to improve and take them to the next level.”

These franchise locations have lease agreements, sales histories, forecasts, staff and much more. Walking into an established franchise location can give you a higher level of predictability than a new site. 

That is the vision of Howards Storage World. To find experienced people who have the ability and passion to run these franchise locations. 

“Someone who has a passion for retail and wants to be part of a group that's going to help them and nurture them and give them the best chance at succeeding.”


As a 25-year-old franchise group, they know what it takes to be successful. 

Full training and continual support are offered by the franchisor. With innovative training programs and marketing, they are passionate about the success of their franchisees

“Be supported with group strategic and tactical marketing initiatives. A multi-channel campaign calendar including digital and traditional elements is provided including store signage packs to build group wide consistent activity.” Howards Storage World Site. 

With a large team of franchisors, they welcome interactions. Which means you won't be going it alone. 

“Come together with other stores at National Meetings to share intelligence and draw on the camaraderie and support of others in the group.” Howards Storage World Site. 

As we welcome in 2023, buyers are looking for opportunities. To change their current careers, and become business or franchise owners. 

The term ‘buy yourself a job’ has been thrown around a lot in the past couple of years. The idea is that you can be an owner and reap the benefits whilst also having employment. 


With a franchise opportunity like this, you can see the current wages, income, expenses and forecast what you - as an owner-operator - could earn.

When questioned by Bsale on the next steps, the listing agent shared;

“I have an IM [information memorandum] I can provide and answer any questions buyers may have. Then move forward from there.”

To find well-established franchise locations on offer, at varying price points, is a rare opportunity. 

To take the next step, enquire with the listing agent.
