ALL ABOUT OUR FRANCHISE
How we get you started
When you join our team, we will provide you with everything you need including stock, branded snack boxes and even 300 guaranteed customers for you within the first few weeks, within the EXCLUSIVE local territory you have been assigned. This kick starts your business and allows you to begin taking in money straight away.
Your business will be built by placing the snack boxes in workplaces or anywhere that people visit e.g. offices, pubs, school staffrooms, doctor surgeries, factories, hairdressers, golf courses, hotels, garages and anywhere else where people gather. You can choose either package 2 which includes 300 GUARANTEED CUSTOMERS with boxes sited for you by our quality siting team, or package 1 where you find your own customers and site your own boxes.

There will be nothing more to pay out for other than additional stock and occasional display boxes. After you pay for your first stock order your business becomes self-financing as part of the cash you subsequently collect in is used to purchase more stock. As with any new business you should ensure you can meet your living expenses for the first couple of months while the business is developing.
Requirements from you
This is a fantastic opportunity for someone to join Snack Aid and earn a good stress-free living with the added benefit of helping a worthwhile cause. We will want you to operate the business on a full time basis, have a friendly pleasant personality and hopefully a desire to be successful. If this sounds like you please get in touch.
All you need to get up and running is some storage – a garage or spare room is ideal (or alternatively you can rent storage space cheaply), a dependable car, computer with a printer and the money to fund the franchise.
As our financial success rests solely upon the orders we receive from our franchisees, we are only successful if they are. So it is important for us provide our franchisees with the best advice and support to maximise their chances of success – this is your guarantee that we are not making empty promises, we succeed with you. We feel confident that once you have looked into all the options you will agree that Snack Aid represents by far the best value for money and the best formula for success.
Package 2 includes 300 GUARANTEED CUSTOMERS with boxes sited for you by our quality siting team
Day-to-day operations of the franchise
Customers choose a product from the box and place their cash in the moneybox. Every two or three weeks, you remove YOUR cash from the box and restock with more products – it’s that simple. These takings are then used to purchase more stock and also provide you with your profits! The price you pay for stock includes the charity donation, so all the money you collect is yours. This way of selling is termed ‘Cause Related Marketing’ and is an increasingly popular way for charities to fundraise. The charity partners with the retail company and receives part of the profits.
What makes it so simple?
As the boxes are branded with Make-A-Wish Foundation UK, customers are happy to host them. This is not the same as cold calling as you are simply leaving a charity snack box at customer’s premises, just as if you were placing a vending machine, and giving them a free service. The fact that the charity is for children ensures a welcome mood and makes placing boxes easy.

We offer a superior and diverse product range including high quality sweets, luxury flapjacks, cakes, healthy crisps, gluten-free and sugar free options to make sure we are meeting today’s trends.
Also available to you is our range of children’s activity packs. Stocking these allows our Make A Wish boxes to be situated in places that sweets/snacks cannot get you access to (for example restaurants, cafes, coffee shops, dentists etc.). This is very exciting because, as we are the only franchise in the charity sector that offers children’s activity packs, it guarantees that within this sector, our franchisees will have ZERO competition selling these packs from any another franchise!!

We believe our package and top quality products will always keep your business in ‘pole position’ amongst any competition you may encounter.

Our in-house box siters have years of experience in setting up our new franchisees. They will quickly get you set up with 300 sites (package 2) and, at the same time, train you how to site boxes yourself so you can grow your business in the future. This allows you to hit the ground running, with customers in the palm of your hand from the off.
Full and proper siting service.
We are very proud of our siting team and the exceptional work they do. In fact we believe we are the only company to offer a ‘full and proper siting service’ where snack boxes are PROPERLY placed into customers premises for you to build your business quickly. We do not use external subcontractors as they usually do poor quality work. Our siters are all part of the Snack Aid team working exclusively with us and only place boxes in sites that meet our strict criteria. Quality work is guaranteed!!
Other companies do not offer a proper siting service like ours, as they have to rely on subcontractors who work on commission and do poor quality work. Rather than admitting this weakness in their franchise package, they usually belittle this valuable and absolutely essential service. It is a fact that without a proper siting service you will struggle to get your business off the ground! The cost of the service is quickly repaid to you because all of your boxes and stock are sited within two weeks quickly bringing in cash for you rather than stored at home earning you nothing! In a nutshell, it’s the best money you could ever invest in your franchise!!

It can even automatically print off charity certificates for your customers showing them how much they have raised for the charity! The overall result is a reduced and automated workload that makes it easier to grow your business.
With our modern solution included in your franchise package, its simple to comfortably deal with as many customers as you want, even 10,000!

One of the most touching and recognizable children’s charities in the world, the support of the Make-A-Wish brand will open many doors for you. As part of your franchise you will receive a Make-A-Wish branded ID badge and Make-A-Wish branded clothing so you can represent the charity in a professional manner whilst doing your snack box round.
