A great opportunity in a highly desirable territory to maximise potential in an already lucrative territory.
This exclusive Plan-it Cards business based in the West Midlands has a current annual turnover of over £87K and is a fantastic opportunity for a new owner to take this established and profitable business to the next level.
Plan-it Cards franchisees supply greetings cards, gift wrap & gift bags to retailers in their exclusive territories on the 'only pay for what you sell' method of distribution commonly known as consignment within the retail trade.
We visit our customers once a month, more often if needed. On each visit displays are replenished with fresh stock and new designs are introduced as appropriate.
At the end of our visit, we raise the invoice for what has been sold and collect payment.
The West Midlands territory currently covers 238 trading stores and includes well known symbol group names like Spar, Costcutter, Bestway, Nisa, Keystores as well as several independent stores and post offices. Most of the customers are in the convenience sector which means you can plan your visits around their opening hours, 7 days a week.
This flexibility allows you to decide on the right work/leisure balance.
Good road networks make it easy to travel round your stores.
Working with a base of both independents and national accounts and income from day 1, the business offers the new owner an established income coupled with tremendous growth potential through the development of the current merchandising cycle of visits, and through the opening of more shops in the territory.
The franchise territory is well established and there is potential to grow and support over 300+ accounts with a regular visit.
The on-going support for the franchisee is focused on the continued growth of the business and is provided through a structured support programme in the field.
We will support you from day 1 but more importantly we will continue to support you for the life of your business.
We keep things simple AND convenient. We have over 400 designs available across 2 sizes of cards and 2 Everyday price points and bar codes, so our range is broad in appeal.
Everyday Birthday cards as well as extensive Occasions, Relations and Age titles are available. Packeted gift wrap and gift bags completes the Everyday display. Interest is maintained by regular monthly releases, Extra business is generated by the release of new seasonal ranges every year (Christmas, Valentine's, Mother's Day, Easter, and Father's Day).
The West Midlands territory is ideally suited for a couple or individual who is happy to employ help within the business. The right person will bring an enthusiasm and commitment to their business that only working for themselves can bring.
Working from home, (or a small business unit) all you need is a good-sized garage (or equivalent) for stock, a van or hatchback, mobile phone, tablet, and plenty of enthusiasm and passion!
