THE Original Basket Boutique was founded in 1989 in Canada and has franchises in Kuwait, Australia and the USA. The company is now based in Perth, Australia and is run by husband and wife team, Carl and Christine. They first came across OBB while living in Canada and were given the opportunity to open a franchise in Australia. After five years, they bought out the company. OBB has recently launched franchise opportunities in the UK.
THE Original Basket Boutique, or OBB, puts together luxury gift baskets, containing tantalising food and drinks, plus other high-end gifts. These luxury baskets are aimed at both the corporate environment and the individual. They can be sent as a sign of appreciation for a job well done, or for an anniversary or birthday.
OBB has become a well known international gift brand, with nearly 30 years of experience behind it. They are currently looking for Master Franchisees in the UK to start the ball rolling. They will be responsible for a territory and for developing new franchises. The main products that will be sold in the UK are luxury food and beverages. The Original Basket Boutique head office in Australia provides a 24/7 resource centre and full training. There’s also an option to start part-time and increase hours as the business grows.
