Businesses Seeking Investment and/or New Owners


Immersion Language Learning & Exchange Programmes for Children

This well-established business operates a group of franchises in Australia and New Zealand. Modern teaching methods and resources have been developed that are particularly engaging for younger children. While the initial focus has been on teaching Mandarin conversation skills, the approach used is readily adaptable to teaching other languages (including English) and skills. Courses are mainly offered in collaboration with child care centres, kindergartens and primary schools. Older children, both from Australia and China, will soon participate in holiday-period exchanges where mixing of groups will create authentic cultural experiences and social interactions.

Entrepreneurs may wish to leverage the reputation and resources of this business to establish their own franchisee businesses. Alternatively, the franchisor seeks to partner with international investors and entrepreneurs to develop and market new offerings which will underpin further business growth. Partners could, potentially, purchase the franchisor business in the near- to medium-term.

High-Growth Scaffolding Hire Business

This Queensland business, operating for over ten years, is enjoying profitable growth. Currently, it hires scaffolding, void protection and edge protection systems to the residential and light commercial construction industries as well as stage scaffolding for outdoor events. The company has six permanent and 20 casual staff and is located in a high population growth region with a very significant shortage of dwellings. There is potential to build on the company’s established and protected brand to expand into other related business areas such as elevated access equipment hire, temporary fencing hire, and construction waste bin hire.

The current owner of the business has reached retirement age and is offering the business for sale by tender.
