HOW IT WORKS

You operate in your own local territory exclusive to you. You are supplied with the display boxes and stock at a price which allows you to easily earn the above mentioned income. You build your business by simply placing these boxes of sweets and snacks (with an introduction letter from the charity) in any place where there are either people working or customers visiting. This is not the same as `cold calling selling` as you are offering a free service with no obligation. Placing the boxes is easy, generally people are very receptive because of the charity appeal - you can expect over 60% success rate, all you need is a friendly attitude. After you have placed the boxes, you simply call back every one, two or three weeks to collect the money and replenish the stock. It really is that easy.

All you need to start being your own boss is:

  • Computer with printer
  • Reliable medium sized car.
  • Spare room, garage or small rented unit.
  • Small initial outlay for your stock.
  • Internet banking facilities.

GUARANTEE

We must emphasize, no commitment is made on your part until you are fully confident and are 100% assured of the income you will receive and satisfied with everything that is involved in operating your own business under the guidance of Snak Appeal. You will have `hands on` experience of what is involved by spending the day with us servicing existing customers before any commitment by either party is made. We give continuous ongoing support to all our franchisees.

INCOME

Although full on-the-job training is given, the work is not hard, needs no experience and the hours are very flexible, easily fitting around school times if need be. The money you earn will be proportionate to the effort you put in. A typical day would start at 9am and finish by 3pm to achieve a gross income of at least £30k (with the potential to earn more) operating within your own exclusive territory.

This is a great opportunity for someone to join us and earn a very good income whilst raising money for LOCAL children and providing a service to customers in their work place. You will find this the easiest way of earning a good income you ever imagined and for this reason we do not need to `hard sell` this. We have a certain criteria for the people we choose for this opportunity. You must be willing to operate your round full time, be reasonably confident and most importantly be a friendly person with a pleasant demeanor.

PLACING YOUR BOXES

One of the major advantages that Snak Appeal offers to prospective franchisees is the local appeal of the charity. Where other companies operating similar Cause Related Marketing business ventures support national charities, we at Snak Appeal have arrangements with the charities that support the LOCAL children in your area. The `local` appeal from people buying your sweets cannot be over estimated. It is amazing how much easier it is in placing your initial boxes when people know it is supporting children from THEIR local area.

Another point worth noting is the quality of sweets and snacks you will be placing with customers. No matter what the charity appeal, the product has to be right. Our sweets and snacks are professionally packaged and of a very high quality with a larger selection of sweets than any of our competitors. The sweets consist of well known brands and include old favourites such as wine gums, giant strawberries, fizzy cola bottles, jelly babies, jelly beans, fruit chews, dazzlers, milk chocolate peanuts and raisins and many more. As well as the traditional sweets we also include luxury sweets such as yoghurt coated honeycomb, milk chocolate brazils and chocolate coated popcorn.

INITIAL INVESTMENT REQUIRED

Provided you are suitable, we will offer you the chance to join us for NO FRANCHISE FEE. You will also be given a free `start up package`. All you pay for is your stock and display boxes.

There are no license fees or ongoing fees of any kind apart from your stock and occasional replacement of your display boxes. There are absolutely no hidden costs.

You pay for your stock and display boxes ONLY

Initial cost in starting your business in the UK including Northern Ireland is under £4,500 inclusive of  VAT for stock and display boxes. Buy back guarantee if you decide not carry on at any time.

Because the buy in amount is for stock and display boxes only, the initial investment is never lost: it is always there in your business as stock with your customers.

No further outlay will be required. Your business will be financed from your profits after your initial outlay for stock plus your first additional order of stock but as in any business, you will need to support yourself for the first month or so while your business is building.

Some other companies offering exactly the same expect you to pay up to £10,000 for a franchise fee, initial stock and display boxes. While others have so many clauses in their contract that you are legally tied in to pay them even if you decide to leave.

We are more interested in attracting the right type of person for long term rather than making a quick profit from an initial franchise fee.

WHY NO FRANCHISE FEE

Unlike some other companies in this field, we do not rely on a large initial franchise fee to make a profit. Our profit comes from your continuous ordering of stock from us and not from a large initial fee or any renewal fees as some others charge. If you are not successful, neither are we. Basically our profit comes from your success and not from taking your money before you have had a chance to make any. We only make money if you do, which is why we have to help you in every way possible and not just make promises.

WE ARE DIFFERENT

There are a few other companies offering a very similar franchise opportunity. Why are we different?

First of all don't be fooled by cheap buy in offers without looking very closely at their contract and Manual. Also, be cautious of any offer to have the boxes placed for you before you start. This does not work, which is why we do not offer the service. The boxes placed (which you will at some point pay for) are placed by people on a fee to place anywhere and everywhere. They are not the ones who have to service them, so many are placed in places you would not dream of placing. We guarantee you will be taking half of them out on your first visit. There is only one way this works, place the boxes yourself. With a good local charity behind you, this is relatively easy. A third point is the donations most of these companies donate to the charities they support. The amount they give is a pittance compared to the amount any respectable company would donate. This in time will reflect on your business as the charities realise they are not getting a fair amount and decide to quit their partnership, leaving you without a business. Investigate carefully at the donations any company you are thinking of joining give to the charity. If they have changed charities in the past, ask yourself why!

1. No franchise fee or any other fees at all. Read other companies contracts carefully including their Manual which will be part of your legally binding agreement. Some insist on a minimum length contract and some even insist you pay for stock until the end of your contract even if you decide to quit. (Our contract has been drawn up by a solicitor accredited by the bfa to ensure fair play).

2. The charity. All charities are very worthwhile supporting but you are looking into this venture as a business to earn a good living as well as being ethical in how you earn your money. The charity branding on your display box is absolutely vital in placing your boxes with customers. The more supportive people are of the charity, the more chance you have of placing your boxes. Few would disagree that supporting LOCAL children tugs at more heart strings than any other type of charity. It is not only the fact of it being children that has the appeal, it is the LOCAL aspect of it. Because of this, you will find it much easier in placing boxes than any of the other franchisees representing other charities.

3. Product. We boast that our products are better than others in this field. We know they are better and proof it to prospective franchisees. Our chocolate raisins, nuts and chocolate coated popcorn are real milk chocolate. Look closely at the ingredients of the other companies, some have chocolate flavoured sweets. Our other sweets are also of high quality with branded names. We also have more products with over 80 varieties to choose from.

4. Packaging. Packaging is vital in selling. Our packaging has been designed to attract and sell. It works.
