New FREECHOICE Franchise EOI
Thank you for your interest in joining FREECHOICE Stores. Since you do not have
a current tobacconist store we would like to give you a little bit of information
about the industry you are looking to become a part of.
The industry is controlled greatly by legislation, the tobacco industry as a whole
is in decline, however the Tobacconist section of the industry is in growth as consumers
chase better value for money, which tobacconists are able to offer. FREECHOICE Stores
– Tobacconists has shown steady retail volume growth over the past 3 years.
As legislation gets tougher we believe there will be a greater emphasis on tobacconists,
as it becomes the last domain in which to display tobacco products. FREECHOICE Stores
are so confident in the future of the tobacconist industry that we are currently
expanding the number of company owned stores.
Your franchise will retail tobacco products and accessories concentrating on Adult
consumers. You can also wholesale tobacco products and accessories to smaller retail
outlets within your area. The business principles are based on large turnover and
FREECHOICE Stores strengths are service, professionalism, training and communication.
The business will succeed as we continue to work on the FREECHOICE Stores brand
and become synonymous as the place to purchase your tobacco products from.
We have the largest average volume turnover per franchised outlet in the Australian
Market Place. This has been achieved by providing our franchisees with the best
training and support of any group in the Australian market place.
