The ideal Budgens franchisee

To become a Budgens franchise owner, a background in retailing is an advantage, especially within similar industry, but not necessarily required, although you will need to be commercially minded, dedicated and have a passion for quality food. The amount needed will depend on your preference but a minimum of £20,000 is required if just reacquiring and up to £250,000 for a new one.

You will be required to search for your own property and we have a list of requirements. One of which is to have 2,000-10,000 sq ft sales area, leasehold or freehold, 5000 population within 5 minute drive. It is really important to have a sufficient parking space and should be accessible to the public. A site visit from us is needed to check if the area of your choice will be fit for a Budgens store.
