Driving Sales and Profit in your store
Take Your Business to the Next Level
How One Stop elevates your business to increase your sales and profitability.
The daily challenge of any store is to stay profitable. External factors such as energy costs, product prices and consumer confidence can have a major impact on the trajectory of a business. Navigating an ever-changing market alone can be difficult, however One Stop’s franchisees have a wealth of benefits which allows them to thrive and achieve award-winning results, standing far above the competition in profit and execution.
Our pledge is to increase profits and exceed retailer expectations. We do this by providing: a high quality, high value range, market-leading promotions, a reliable infrastructure, an award-winning online delivery platform, effective in-house marketing, trusted partnership and support, and innovative technology.
The customer is at the heart of our operation, with our mission of ‘serving the customers, communities and planet a little better everyday‘ resonating through everything we do. As a result of our dedication to the customer, both our company estate and franchisees’ businesses continue to grow each year, as we enjoy success together.
Let’s look a little closer into the contributing factors to increased sales and profit that One Stop stores experience.
“I have increased my sales 40%, this is really good for me and really good for growing my business.”

A High Quality & High Value Range
Stocking shelves with products that customers will keep coming back for.
One Stop pride ourselves on the range we provide to our customers. As a subsidiary of Tesco PLC, we have access to consumer insights that allow us to continually remove low performing lines and replace them with products that provide everyday value for our customers. Our fresh range of ‘Selected by Tesco’ also clearly shows the Tesco logo, giving customers the brand’s quality assurance.
Our Eat Street range provides a variety of food to go options alongside quality meal deal snacks and confectionary, and positions stores as destinations within the community when paired with essential services offered such as Evri Delivery, Lottery, and Paypoint.

Market Leading Promotions
Permanent, bi-weekly, and seasonal promotions to keep customers excited about your store.
If a store does not refresh its offering and offer promotions, customers can become fatigued and search elsewhere. It is important to strike a balance between reliable deals on frequently purchased products and lucrative time-sensitive offers that drive impulse purchases. One Stop has perfected this balance. That’s what makes us market leading.
Permanent promotions on fresh meal deals, frozen meal deals, confectionary and off-license keep footfall at a steady high, whilst bi-weekly rolling promotions retain customers by encouraging them to return to our stores seeking the latest high-value bargain. Alongside this, seasonal promotions drive sales and profits during peak periods, such as Easter, Halloween or Christmas. Each promotion maintains a great margin per sale, contributing to an increase in profit. To learn more about our market leading promotions, click here.
Award-winning Online Delivery Options
A tried and tested method to increases sales and profits by delivery quality products to our customers.
Our online delivery offering revolutionised the convenience space. As the first to partner with major delivery platforms such as Deliveroo, Just Eat and Uber Eats, we learnt as we went, until being ready to offer our franchisees a perfected method for increased sales and profit. With each passing day online delivery becomes less of a bonus and more of a necessity for convenience stores. Online delivery allows independent retailers to open up an entirely new avenue for sales and profit. For an independent retailer, if you do not offer online delivery, your competitor will.
The steps we have taken to ensuring our online delivery offering is a resounding success has earned us praise from the entire retail industry. In 2023, we were awarded Best Use of Technology at the Retail Industry Awards for our approach to online delivery.
