Did you know that almost three million people in the UK currently use e-cigarettes? That’s a lot of people choosing to vape instead of smoke a traditional cigarette.
This statistic isn’t surprising given that electronic cigarettes have grown massively in popularity since they first hit the UK market in 2013. Vype was the first brand to appear in the UK and this was quickly followed by many different brands, flavours and styles as the nation’s interest in e-cigarettes and vaping began to take hold.
Part of this popularity is due to people thinking more about their health and wanting to give up smoking. Research by Public Health England showed that e-cigarettes are around 95% less harmful than smoking and that most of the adults choosing e-cigarettes were using them to help them quit smoking or prevent them going back to cigarettes, making e-cigarettes a real option for smokers who have struggled to quit in the past.
The continuing popularity of e-cigarettes means it’s a great time for anyone considering running their own e-cigarette franchise. With high-street brands such as Totally Wicked and The Vape Shop offering franchise opportunities, you will be able to run your own business with the support of a big business network. This means that even if you’ve never run a business before, you can access training and marketing support to help you get your new franchise up and running plus you have the benefit of being part of an already-established brand and business reputation. This really helps you to grow your customer base and is one of the key reasons that franchises often have a higher rate of success than a start-up business.
