Even if you didn’t grow up loving the iconic Farm Stores brand, we’ll show you how much there is to love about the ground-floor Farm Stores Convenient Stores franchise opportunity. We say “ground-floor” because although Farm Stores has been around since 1957, this is the first time the franchise opportunity is being offered. In other words, your timing is fantastic!
At the end of the day, Farm Stores sells something that no one in the world has enough of: TIME. We make life easier and more convenient for busy families and that’s something that will never go out of style. In fact, our model has been relevant for more than 60 years—and we’re just getting started.
Here are just a few of the advances we’re making to help our franchisees succeed well into the future:
- Video Wall Marketing Technology
- Loyalty & Rewards Programs
- Text & Email Marketing Services
- Online Ordering & Mobile Payment
- iPhone and Android Apps
- “Green” Technology and Best Practices
- Fully Integrated Cloud-based POS System
- Local Support (Area Developer)
- National Distribution & Purchasing Power
- Upgraded Equipment for Fast, Quality Production
As our customers’ needs continue to evolve, so too will we. You can guarantee that if something comes along that makes our process easier or more efficient, we will make the investment. In fact, that’s one of the great things about being a Farm Stores franchisee: you have a built-in R&D department working for you year-round.
