Our Journey So Far….
The Source Bulk Foods came to the UK in 2018 with the opening of the first store in London, Chiswick. There are now 3 stores in the UK and 1 in Dublin, Ireland. We think this is only the beginning. We want to see healthy package free shopping all over the UK and Ireland and are looking for Franchise Partners to help us make that a reality.
Why Franchise with The Source Bulk Foods?
As a Franchise Partner you get the benefits of joining our proven and successful business. This means that your business can be up and running faster and is more likely to meet your goals. There are many advantages to being part of a larger group including benefiting from the buying scale across our group, the continuous development of new product lines and evolution of the business as well as group wide and store specific marketing campaigns and materials.
How will you support me and my business?
From the beginning we are there to support you as you build your business including locating the ideal site, designing the store and fixtures, and managing the fit-out project. We will train you in all aspects of running a The Source Bulk Foods during our in-store Discovery Week including customer service, product filling and cleaning processes, ordering and inventory management, staff rostering, back of house operations and more. As opening day nears we will be there with you and the team to prepare the store while providing training to the team on handling the products and the day to day store operations. Then as the doors open and we welcome your first customers we are on site beside you to make sure everything is running smoothly.
After open we continue to support our Franchise Partners with on-going Training, Product Support, Marketing and Operations. All stores receive regular Quality Reviews and where required we work with you to optimise the performance of your team and the store.
All training modules, materials and forms are available for you and your team to access on our intranet site, MyTribe.
Am I a suitable candidate to be a Franchise Partner?
A successful Franchise Partner can come from any background or experience level. Some characteristics that we are looking for when considering candidates include:
How much does it cost?
To open a The Source Bulk Foods store you will need an available investment budget of around £200k. Each one of our stores is unique depending on the site, so the final amount may change, though we have certain brand elements we require in each store that we believe make our stores special. It is possible to finance part of the cost of opening your store though a minimum capital amount will need to be contributed by you.
From humble beginnings in a small Australian town The Source Bulk Food was created by Paul and Emma back in 2012. Since then The Source has grown to 60 stores in Australia as well as launching in New Zealand, Singapore, and the UK and Ireland. We are proud of many things but no. 1 is knowing that by doing what we do we have had a positive impact on our customers, their families and the lives of our franchise partners.
We started selling bulk foods in this space & soon realised what a huge difference we could make if unpackaged foods were more readily available…”
