Think merchandising franchises– think high volume quick turnover sales. Merchandising is big news around the globe. They are many possibilities with a merchandising franchises, from stands in shopping malls, to High Street stores, concessions or online sales.
Merchandising can be a lucrative market, with scope for growth as your franchise becomes more established. Unlike setting up a sales operation from scratch, by investing in a franchise, the supply chain, training and support is already in place. So your business will be up and running in no time.
Whether you would like to retail, gifts, accessories, newspapers there is a merchandising franchise available for most products we need to purchase on a frequent basis.
The trick is finding out what franchises gleam greater customer loyalty and retention. Look for a long term option that will yield well, areas you could consider may be greeting cards for example, this is an essential regular purchase for many of us and with reported sales of £1.75bn spent on greetings card in the UK during 2017 worth some thought.
Whatever area of merchandising you wish to explore, finding an area that you have a genuine interest in, will make for an enjoyable business venture.
Management Franchises remain to top choice amongst white collar franchise seekers. With business consultancy services estimated to be worth £7bn to the UK economy. Many companies chose to employ franchised business consultants in order to reduce costs and improve their businesses operations.
This can be both enjoyable and a lucrative area of business. Working as a management consultant is considered by many to be a professional role, if you have a passion for business and are brimming with enthusiasm, the training programmes that many management franchise can provide you with the right skills, techniques and on-going support required for you to operate your franchise.
A management franchise can also offer a good life work balance, with consultancy hours mainly being set around traditional office hours, a management franchise could be the solution for more leisure time and is ideal for people who enjoy business and have a desire to inspire other local businesses to thrive.
Coffee Shop Franchises
As the British cafe culture grows last year the UK spent over £7.9bn in coffee shops.
The number of coffee shops grew to well past 20,000 in 2015, driven by a 12% increase in the number of branded coffee shop chains, according to the Project Cafe 2016 UK report from Allegra World Coffee Portal.
Costa, Starbucks and Caffè Nero, which when combined control more than half of the branded coffee shop market, led the coffee shop sector with a growth of 15% to an annual turnover of an amazing £3.3bn
With this sort of grow you can see why some many successful coffee businesses decided to franchise to enable them to compete with the major brands and take a slice of this ever growing market. Some of these coffee franchises are the traditional coffee shop like the above major brands but some have also been innovative and even made mobile coffee shop franchises, a coffee shop on wheels by converting vans to deliver to offices, industrial estates etc which both lower the businesses overheads and also brings coffee shops to more people that maybe would work too far away from a traditional coffee shop.
The UK spent a whopping £29.4 Billion just on takeaways according to research conducted by vouchercodes the online discount voucher company so it appears there is no shortage of potential business with any food related franchises.
Catering franchises are not just fast food though they cover a huge variety of different sectors including restaurants, corporate catering, bar & pub franchises, ice cream and frozen yogurt, mobile food businesses, sandwich businesses and even wine bar and dessert franchises. The diversity of catering & food related franchises is what makes it very interesting to potential franchise seekers and it provides variety in both sectors but also customers and even they way you trade, ie from a mobile food van to a high end restaurant.
The type of people that would probably be suited to catering franchises and other food related opportunities would be foodies. You may not be required to have any formal catering experience of qualifications, although that would depend on the franchise as all franchise businesses will provide full training & support both initially and ongoing with your new franchise business.
