A merchandise franchise can be described as a company that purchases finished goods and then sells them to create a profit. Merchandisers usually buy from a variety of distributors and will then market the purchased products both physically in shops and online.
It’s a consumer-driven industry and it is sometimes a case of supply and demand. Some merchandisers specialise in supplying very niche products, while others might offer everyday items that will always be in demand. Whichever approach you choose, the importance of merchandising is undeniable to the retail industry.
The merchandising industry brings in a huge amount of money to the UK economy every single year. It’s estimated that, as a whole, the merchandising and product distribution sectors are worth around £1 billion. There’s no sign that this growth is going to slow down either - so now is a good time to pursue a merchandise franchise opportunity.
