Byrider Automotive Franchise Opportunities Rely on Great Locations. Here’s How to Find One!
If you’re thinking about automotive franchise opportunities as your way to do business, we’re here to tell you, you’re on the right track! Ours is a robust recession-resistant industry, and Byrider is a leader in it. Our franchisees enjoy our comprehensive support and the respect and recognition of a brand name that has been making a difference in hundreds of communities across the country since 1989. There’s a lot that goes into the success of each Byrider dealership, and one very important consideration is its location. Here, we’ll look at a few factors that help define a great Byrider location for our automobile dealership opportunity.
When you begin your search for your Byrider dealership site, you’ll want to make sure you narrow your focus on locations that are easy to find and are part of known and visited areas within your community. You’ll also want to consider the demographics of a location, accessibility, daily traffic counts, level of competition, rent and construction costs, and whether there is sufficient residential and commercial backup to support your dealership. Byrider provides market analysis to ensure market viability, including location with sales forecasting.
Many of our franchisees find that doing business near traffic generators, such as major retailers like Walmart or Home Depot, or major local grocers, hotels, or other recognized businesses is a smart way to go. Some franchisees build their dealerships from scratch, on land they own. Others find a suitable property that’s already been developed. Whatever location you choose, you’ll want to be sure it is highly visible and accessible. Of course, you’ll also want to be sure there’s plenty of space for customer parking. The average Byrider is built or remodeled as a 6-8k of building on 1-1.5 acres.
Some Other Important Considerations
Because we’ve already helped so many of our franchisees set up and establish their dealerships, we know what makes an optimal location for one of our automotive franchise opportunities. We have decades of experience guiding our franchisees through the process of finding and building out locations that meet important criteria that’ll help set them up for success.
We suggest, for instance, that your ideal property should be somewhere between 1.5 and 2.0 acres in size. This parameter will give your dealership adequate space to showcase all your quality used vehicles and accommodate several buildings. These include a required Byrider sales office, CNAC finance office, and the Byrider service center. You’ll also want to choose a site that will allow for paving, curbing, and landscaping. An attractive, well-maintained, and safe dealership is of the utmost importance, as it not only looks professional but engenders trust and confidence in your best customers.
A Recognized and Respected Brand Name
Byrider has been a leader in the used car industry for decades, and all our dealerships across the country benefit from that.
