About the Opportunity
Astra Apartments has a franchisee network around Australia providing medium to long term serviced apartment accommodation to the corporate market.
Unlike other accommodation providers, Astra Apartments' properties are full-sized, residential apartments that are furnished and equipped to a very high standard, thus providing an ideal solution for business travellers on long-stays.
Because the inventory is leased, it is very flexible. The business can be easily up-scaled according to market demand. This minimises initial capital outlay for the Franchisee and lets the Franchisee grow the business in line with demand without stretching capital needs or increasing debt levels.
This business model offers a genuine competitive advantage compared to other operators within the hotel/accommodation industry.
Astra Apartments is highly regarded within the corporate accommodation sector. It is a premium provider with a high percentage of repeat bookings from blue chip corporate customers and major corporate travel agencies and relocation consultants.
This opportunity includes two territories:

1. Chatswood / Macquarie Park
2. St Leonards

Each territory has a separate franchise agreement which will be assigned to the buyer subject to approval by the Franchisor.

The Vendor commenced operating 15 years ago (July 2006) with units in Chatswood. The three locations of Chatswood, Macquarie Park and St Leonards are key parts of the Astra Apartments national network and are well-known and highly regarded domestically and internationally by company travel bookers, corporate travel agents and relocation consultants. Astra Apartments is also an approved supplier to Flight Centre business travel and AOT (government travel agency).

The three locations are prime commercial centres and the neighbouring residential areas are highly sought after.
