Why franchising has the
edge over the competition

Whether you’re currently running a symbol group store or you’re an independent retailer, becoming a One Stop franchise brings with it a host of benefits.

If you’re a symbol group store owner…

For a start, because symbol groups are primarily suppliers and wholesalers, buying and selling products to stores who trade under their brand name, they don’t have the same level of retail expertise as a franchisor like One Stop. So if you’re a symbol group store owner and feeling like you’re not getting the level of advice, support and guidance you want, that’s probably why. The good news is that by joining One Stop, you’ll get the support you need – seven days a week.

If you’re an independent store owner…

While being an independent retailer means you’ve got complete responsibility for every aspect of your business, the downside is that you don’t have the external support, expertise or tools that could give your business the edge in an ever-demanding and competitive market.

Switching from being an independent retailer to a One Stop franchisee instantly gives you access not just to our retail expertise, seven day a week support and industry insight, you’ll also have the power of a national brand behind you. And that means added advantages like greater buying power – so you’ll be able to run high-margin promotions that work for you and your customers – and shopper insights based on all of our customers, right across our franchise network. You’ll still be your own boss, though – in fact, some of our franchisees prove to be such successful business owners they go on to open multiple One Stops over time.

And that’s just the beginning.

So if you’ve got any more questions about how joining a franchise could transform your business, why not get in touch?
