Franchise Systems

The Gateway franchise system has proven to be a successful business proposition establishing itself as the foremost newstand operation.

 Currently a franchisor to over 500 Gateway Newstands

  • Leasing space for 75 square feet to 700 square feet in high traffic
  • Easily accessed lobby locations in high rise office towers
  • Transit locations and shopping centers in Canada and the USA.

Gateway is essentially a convenience store

  • Operating out of kiosks and in-line stores in large office buildings, shopping centers, and transit locations.
  • Gateway will adapt the design to fit in with the design of the building

The major strength of this franchise relates primarily to its traditional merchandising

  • Featuring nationally advertised, pre-packaged, everyday consumer needs sold to a captive population generally with an exclusive use clause for its merchandising for the full term of the lease and options thereof.

Gateway Newstands provides the individual franchisee with:

  • A turnkey operation in an excellent location.
  • Coordination of the construction of the leasehold improvements.

Less Demanding Hours

  • The working hours for a Gateway location in office towers and some transit locations are less demanding than most convenience store locations.

Finally, and most importantly, Gateway is not vulnerable to significant operational problems

  • Gateway is a simple turnkey franchise operation.
  • Our owners are fully knowledgeable and experienced in every facet of their trade

The franchisees operate by way of a sublease signed by the landlord principal

  • This affords the franchisee with all the rights and obligations of the franchisors head lessee.

The future for Gateway is bright since the company is expanding at a faster rate than any competitors. The franchisee has a vested interest in promoting the store sales and customer satisfaction. This level of service is difficult to duplicate with corporate staff and therefore, the Gateway Store, will continue to be a pleasant shopping experience for our customers, and a successful addition to any new or existing office, retail or transit development.
