Sweets franchise opportunities

The traditional corner shop selling sweeties by the quarter pound may be an endangered species, but creative business people have found new ways to supply the UK with confectionery. From Candy Carts at events, weddings and festivals, to Pick & Mix shops, and even a roaring trade in retro sweet hampers. Ironically, a new style of 'old fashioned sweet shop' has appeared on high streets, once more selling bags of goodies by weight.

The UK has a sweet tooth!

Companies are experimenting with a vast array of ingredients and flavours to produce confectionery for such niche markets as diabetics, vegans and anyone who likes their sweets to pack a salt or chilli punch. Do you know, in the UK around half of the sweets consumed are an evening's treat? One report found that 47% of the UKs confectionery is part of post-6pm relaxing.

If you are considering launching a new sweet franchise business, more important is knowing that confectionery sales are resilient and growing strongly. This has been partly helped by a rise in the number of international brands offering their sweets in Britain. Whatever type of confectionery venture you are considering, launching under an established brand name makes great business sense. Retail pricing in confectionery is cut throat, and having the backing of a company that buys in bulk from established suppliers is key.

What kind of sweets based franchise?

Sweet franchise opportunities let you pick from a mix of options. This includes self-vending sweet snack boxes from Barnack Confectionery Ltd, and confectionery vending franchiser Tubz. On a different front, With Thanks is a bagged sweet franchise business that works with charities to raise cash. High street name Thornton is on the look out for new franchisees and Mixmo offers pick and mix systems suitable for shops, or stands in garages, leisure facilities, colleges, cinemas and train stations, for example.

With so many choices, how do you pick the right flavour of sweet franchise for you? Contact us, and we can find a match that will put your future trading 'in the bag'.
