The company is a Franchise of Rocksolid USA who started in Florida in 2001. Granite Transformations has operations in the United States, Australia and Italy with more than 60 Franchisees located in more than 24 states in the United States. The company for sale (a local, Northern Virginia Franchisee) is in the business of locally marketing, selling and installing Rocksolid Granite reconstituted slabs over existing surfaces, including kitchen countertops, bathrooms, vanities, and fireplaces to customers within designated and exclusive geographic territories.
The product is a slab that is approximately 95% natural granite stone, with specially formulated polymer that provides greater strength and durability than Mother Nature's version. The stone is heat, stain, and scratch resistant, anti-microbial, essentially maintenance free, and backed by a life-time Limited Material Warranty. Residential applications include kitchen countertops, bathrooms, vanities, fireplaces, floors, and any of the commercial applications which include receptions areas, entry foyers, lobbies, restroom areas, bar tops, tables, boardroom tables, retail stores, hotels and motels: lobbies, guest rooms, investment properties, retirement villages, and entertainment facilities. Our revolutionary products allow for quick and easy installation resulting in a fast remodeling turnaround and less disruption to business.
This is a very unique opportunity for the right entrepreneur who likes to work with people and a tangible product that they can be very proud of or for one, two, or more entrepreneurs who also like marketing and sales, design, fabrication, installation, and business development. The business has been open for approximately 1.5 years and generated approximately $909,000 in 2005. The business comes with an existing customer base, a protected geographic territory, a showroom / fabrication shop, trained production and installation people and one relatively new sales person.
