Franchise Opportunities

Posted: 9th Jun 2017 Closing: 9th Sep 2017

Working for:
Sassi Gifts UK Ltd

Description:

Sassi Gifts provide a mobile gift shop to the care and sheltered housing industry, as well as home parties, fetes and events. As we do not have the over heads of a shop we are able to offer an affordable service to our clients whilst making good profits.We are now expanding our service and due to having strong links with care home groups across the UK we are able to assist you in building your care homes database quickly and efficiently.  Developing your area will take some work by calling care homes, emailing, letter writing and use of social media to spread the word of the business. Once you have got a booking and have visited the sales for the homes will rebook so over time people will be calling you with bookings!

Investment Required:
We have different tiers depending on each persons budget to sign up for an area. The only other outlay is for stock and you can start with a little as £100 nett. We recommend starting with £200 worth of stock to give a good display at each sale.

Hours:
You can book your own sales at times to suit you. A lot of our franchises have children and they take them in the holidays to the sales which will normally last an hour. This role suits people who need to work school hours or flexible hours. To succeed in this business you need to be ambitious and driven, wanting to earn excellent return for working as many hours as you choose

Salary/Wage:
You can control how much you earn and develop your area to suit your earning your requirements. We find from January to August there is a steady flow of sales and then from September onwards the sales can increase massively!

Best suited to:
People looking for flexible hours, who enjoy meeting people, drinking tea and providing an excellent service to people who cant get out to the shops. The joy of joining Sassi Gifts is the fact you are providing a service which brings a smile to not just the residents of the care homes and sheltered housing but the staff who also enjoy the excellently priced gifts.

Mum's view

Name: Tina Goodhart

Location: Swindon

Family: 2 Children

How often do you work?
I do sales 4 times a week in the build up to Christmas season I can do 2 sales a day and still be back in time for the children.

How does the job fit around your family life?
I can fit this job into school hours and even take the children with me in the holidays - I control my own diaries and bookings. It took my first year to establish which places were best to visit and now I have a lovely client base, they love the bargains and I make great money for working part time hours around my family commitments.

How much time do you commit?
As much or a little as you want to - a sale would last an hour - with the set up time of 30 minutes either side I tend to work 2 hours for a sale and can often make £50 profit... not a bad hourly rate!

Where do you carry out your work?
I visit care homes, sheltered housing, local hospital and charity events

Do you need a car?
Yes a car and a mobile are required for this role.

Do you get support/training?
Sassi Gifts Head office offer support 7 days a week ...always on the end of emails or the phone. Full support and training are given by way of training packs and calls.

Would you recommend this opportunity to other mums?
Yes if you want a part time role where you can earn great money and be in control then this would suit you well!

Do you advertise?
I tend to use facebook, I contact the carehomes and sheltered housing, using letters, flyers and phone calls.

Are there any downsides to the role?
I have never loved a job so much, chatting, drinking tea and making money! NO downside from where I am sitting! You do need to be prepared to call around to get your foot in the door but once you have done a Sassi Sale once, the homes rebook you time and time again!
