Even if you didn’t grow up loving the iconic Farm Stores brand, we’ll show you how much there is to love about the ground-floor Farm Stores Convenient Stores franchise opportunity. We say “ground-floor” because although Farm Stores has been around since 1957, this is the first time the franchise opportunity is being offered. In other words, your timing is fantastic!
At the end of the day, Farm Stores sells something that no one in the world has enough of: TIME. We make life easier and more convenient for busy families and that’s something that will never go out of style. In fact, our model has been relevant for more than 60 years—and we’re just getting started.
Here are just a few of the advances we’re making to help our franchisees succeed well into the future:
As our customers’ needs continue to evolve, so too will we. You can guarantee that if something comes along that makes our process easier or more efficient, we will make the investment. In fact, that’s one of the great things about being a Farm Stores franchisee: you have a built-in R&D department working for you year-round.
What does it mean to be the perfect “fit” for a Farm Stores franchise? A desire to bring good, old-fashioned customer service to your community is a great place to start.
Within the Farm Stores family, honesty and integrity are of utmost importance. Although franchisees operate their locations independently, we like to think of ourselves as one big team. We bounce ideas off of each other, and share with one another what works well and what works even better.
Not only do we treat our franchisees like family, we believe it’s important to treat our employees and our customers the same way. Professional excellence is at the heart of what we do – from the quality products we buy, to the successful marketing strategies we share, to the customer service best practices we employ.
Honesty, integrity, and genuine customer service aside, here are some more qualities we look for:
PREVIOUS BUSINESS OR MANAGERIAL EXPERIENCE – We’re looking for leaders who have experience running a business or managing people – those who are well-acquainted with the business world.
GOOD PEOPLE SKILLS – Farm Stores puts customers first, that’s why we’re recognized for our topnotch customer service. If you’re interested in owning a Farm Stores, you’ve got to love talking to people.
RETAIL EXPERIENCE – While this is not a requirement, if you’ve worked in a restaurant, bakery, grocery store, or convenience store, you’ve got applicable experience.
ABILITY TO FOLLOW A PROVEN SYSTEM – Your willingness to follow a proven system is very important to us and to the success of your business.
YOUR FUNDABILITY FACTOR – This refers to your ability to financially qualify for the Farm Stores franchise opportunity.
At Farm Stores, we are well aware that the future success of the Farm Stores franchise is dependent upon the capabilities of each of our franchisees.
We want our franchisees to succeed, and we want their store to THRIVE. That being said, we provide all of the education, tools, training, support, and marketing that franchisees need to be successful in their business. And we don’t stop there – we provide the emotional support.
We support our franchisees in the following areas:
We’ll help you decide if opening a new location or buying an existing Farm Stores is right for you. From there, we’ll help you iron out all of the specifics, including zoning details, so you can move forward in the right direction.
TRAINING & SUPPORT
We offer comprehensive onsite training and support. Building up to your Grand Opening, we’ll teach you and your employees everything you need to know to successfully operate your store. After the Grand Opening, you’ll always have ongoing support to help you run your business efficiently.
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
We’re continuously keeping tabs on what the market demands. We recently added specialty baked goods, coffees, gourmet soups, salads, and smoothies – all because we listen to our customers. You can count on us to regularly introduce new products to keep our faithful customers interested, and to boost sales!
We offer world-class distribution nationwide. With product distribution across the U.S. and to other countries, we’re not limited by geography.
MARKETING & NEW CUSTOMER ACQUISITION
