Find out more about our exciting Sweet Shop Franchise Opportunity right here!
I don’t think any other retail activity could possibly match the satisfaction we get in providing our customers of all ages with a superb selection of sweets. From quality retro and traditional sweets to sugar-free and American sweets and candies.
Consider the potential lifestyle you could have running a DaffyDownDilly sweet shop franchise. And then compare this with any other franchise opportunity you might be considering.
Can you imagine running a franchise business where every single one of your customers is excited about buying product from you? And is looking forward in anticipation of enjoying a delicious treat for themselves or giving that treat as a present to someone else?
You really should see the absolute delight shown on the faces of young children when they come into our shop with their parents or grandparents. Especially when they are given the chance to choose for themselves which sweets they can have from our selection of over 350 sweet jars.
Or witness the happiness of our teenage customers when they find we stock the trendy American candy they’ve been looking for. Or receive grateful appreciation from a diabetic or other dieter when he or she discovers the wide choice of sugar-free sweets we’ve sourced especially for them.
Our Daffy-down-dilly pilot shop in the High Street, Sidmouth, Devon, opened in April 2014. We carry a huge range of popular and specialist confectionery products and piñatas. We have a vast core product range. In addition we supply bespoke gifts of sweet jars, hampers, candy cakes and party sweet bags made to any budget. This service ensures we are able to meet the needs of just about any customer with any budget.
The shop prides itself on providing the type of friendly and professional service that regrettably most shoppers simply don’t get these days. Absolutely nothing is too much trouble for our well trained staff.
DaffyDownDilly has proved so popular that in January 2015 we were voted “New Enterprise of 2015” by the Chamber of Commerce, an award we were very proud to receive in our first year of trading.
What makes us a popular destination shop?
The bright, cheerful shop design and lively atmosphere is key. Coupled with a virtually unbeatable, well priced, product range and outstanding service has already developed considerable customer loyalty. We know that’s so important to the success of any retail business.
DaffyDownDilly is a specialist retail confectioner with a particularly strong, fresh, young and dynamic brand image. This was developed by Franchise Consultants Limited to appeal to all ages.
We are now keen to accept initial expressions of interest in opening a Daffy-down-dilly confectioners shop, as a further pilot outlet. We love to hear from anyone who feels they would like to offer the same level of service that we do and be willing to mirror our company ethos in their own area. Interested parties are invited to contact me if they are able to raise the necessary funds, which will vary depending upon the size and location of the proposed new shop’s location.
For the first 5 sweet shop franchises taken up, the initial franchise fee will be £9,950 + VAT. Because we are determined you will succeed, our licence fee for you to use the DaffyDownDilly corporate image and systems and receive ongoing support will be set at just 3% of your net monthly sales turnover. (This is designed to keep your expenditure to the minimum during your early growth period and in the future.)
