Hire Intelligence, the Australian PC rental company, is attempting to expand its UK market share by seeking franchisees through newspaper ads. A second ad appeared in the Times today, asking for businesspeople to come forward and buy franchises for £30,000-38,000. It claimed annual profits of £83,500 on capital (including stock) of £133,250 could be achieved. The company first came to England last July, opening a franchise in Maida Vale, London. Since then, two subsidiaries of this franchise have opened in Glasgow and South East London. Steve Taylor, Hire Intelligence's senior sales executive in the UK, said these latest additions had largely resulted from the ad in the Times earlier this year. He said turnover for the Maida Vale franchise had started at £2000 in the first month of operation, and now stood at £90,000-100,000. He also outlined next year's plans to roll out franchises in Birmingham, Reading, Manchester and Dublin. Desktops account for about 60 per cent of Hire Intelligence's business, mainly Compaq and Hewlett-Packard. The remaining 40 per cent notebook business is mostly Toshiba. ®
