Specialist services to help companies trade from a local garden centre.
First Franchise represents some of the UK’s most recognisable retail concession brands. We specialise in matching leading retailers with forward thinking garden centres and since 2004 we have helped establish garden centres as retail destinations by installing concessions, and thereby broadening the retail offer with the best retailers in their field.
Concessions are now an intrinsic part of modern garden centre retailing, adding to the overall appeal and relaxed informal shopping environment that make garden centres the consumers choice of retail destinations.
Concessions trade as independent businesses from their own designated area and are generally operated as either manned or unmanned formats. Long term concessions trade with their own staff and till points and unmanned concessions operate under their own branding, supported by merchandisers that look after the products.
Our Directors and consultants have an intricate understanding of garden centres, concession management and retail development strategy. The company is committed to offering the highest standards in concession advice and operates with the principle objective of providing its clients with an unbiased, professional service.
If you are a retailer considering the garden centre market for the first time, our database will provide you with the details of garden centres looking for specific retail experts to add to the appeal of their sites.
Contact us today for further information and we will be pleased to introduce you to the garden centre sector and talk you through the process for establishing your business in some of the UK’s best known venues.
