In Britain, we love convenience over effort, so if there is ever a choice to pop to the local convenience store over a drive to the next major supermarket, 9 times out of 10, we will go for the local shop.
This lucrative business appeals to a wide range of people and there's no reason why you can't be one of them. Convenience stores are basically local grocery stores. They stock a variety of household products, drinks, newspapers and grocery products. They essentially serve a need in the local community, providing a practical solution to those who can't or simply don't want to access the out of town big super stores. They base their stock on impulse and emergency buys or top-up buys until the next "big" shop. If you're situated in a busy location where the nearest superstore is a drive away, then it's a prime spot for you to invest in your own convenience store franchise.
Don't fear about today's economy either, although it's uncertain at times, Mike Carr, the managing director of EM&F stated that “National sales of convenience stores at the end of September this year were up 31% on the same month last year – and those figures were up on the previous year,”- this is good news for those wishing to invest in a convenience store franchise.
Running your own convenience store franchise is easier than you think and has countless benefits. Firstly, there is the financial security of belonging to a bigger, well-known franchise combined with the brilliant independence of running your very own business under your supervision. There is lots of hands-on experience given along with training, and the great thing about a convenience store franchise is that people always need bread, milk and newspapers- throughout the whole year!
