One year after Coventry retailer Gaz Bains joined One Stop, sales are up by £2,000 a week and still growing

Average store turnover: £18,000 p/w
Number of UK retail members: 170

One Stop Franchise has convenience retailing at its heart, with a network of more than 780 company-owned stores, meaning it can offer its expertise and insight to all retailers who join the family.
The back office systems take care of day-to-day stock management and ordering, saving time and money, while the market-leading promotions compete with the high street.
Retailers can benefit from healthy, consistent margins of between 18-24%, depending on their sales mix, and receive a dedicated business development manager to help them grow their business. One Stop also offers a £50,000 investment in each store.
All great reasons for a progressive retailer to join the One Stop family and profit from their expertise.

1.Latest technology: “The data they can offer retailers is exceptional. I never have to worry about stocking a product that won’t sell,” he says. One Stop’s EPoS system offers retailers suggested ordering and handheld terminals that can help scan deliveries and print reduction labels.
2. Initial investment: One Stop offers retailers financial support to get started and help them put on a launch event and engage with local press. “The fact they offer every store £50k at the start shows their commitment and helps us get off to a great start,” he says.
3. Great value: The company’s promotions help One Stop retailers stay competitive while offering quality products. “Our shoppers understand that we’re linked with Tesco and they understand that they can expect quality and value,” he says.

“We’re two and a half years into working with One Stop and since then we’ve ranked in the IAA top 100 every year and have been lucky enough to win three awards, which has taken our business to the next level.
“One Stop offers us promotions every four weeks, which are staggered so that it keeps it fresh for our customers. We also have permanent promotions, like two-for-£2 on drinks and our meal deal is £3, which is among the cheapest in convenience.
“We also receive leaflets to shout about these promotions, as well as merchandising guidance.
“The technology that is available to us is a huge benefit. We have access to a system called Franchise Net where we can see emails, invoices and compare like-for-like sales and we can access this from anywhere.”
