Convenience Store franchise opportunities

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.

Why should I invest in a convenience store franchise?

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. 

Is it difficult to run my own 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!
