Own a Store
Let's start the conversation:
OWN A STORE
Like a “Franchise” WITHOUT the royalties (licensed direct outlets)
It’s simple – You, the entrepreneur, own and run your store. Entrepreneurs and existing business owners, take this opportunity to own a stable investment in a paint retail store through our unique business model.
THE BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY
We are actively looking for suitably matched candidates to open more stores. We are specifically looking to find people who are great traders and understand how to successfully operate a specialist paint outlet. Our licensing model requires the direct outlet to be a standalone retail outlet that exclusively stocks Universal Paints and complementary accessories. Your revenue and profits are not subjected to franchise fees and other hidden costs – What you earn is what you keep.
No other retailers stock Universal Paints products, the entire range is only available from licensed direct outlets. Owners focus solely on customer service and experience rather than what other multi-brand stockists are doing.
BACKGROUND & PEDIGREE
Universal Paints is a South African manufacturer of high quality paints and coatings, developed by expert technical teams. Our products are only available through licensed, independently owned and operated, direct retail outlets (like a franchise). Our heritage encompasses 40+ years of experience in manufacturing and production and a reputation offering superior quality products at affordable prices.
Universal Paints stores supply and service consumers who understand the value of quality, longevity and expert service. Owners and staff are provided technical services and access to comprehensive training. Target markets includes DIY, developers, contractors, commercial, residential, specifiers and architects.
The model provides flexibility in the complementary and associated products on offer through a buying group affiliation and other suppliers.
BRAND ADVERTISING & LOCAL STORE MARKETING
Our strategy, attention and budget, focuses on growing the Universal Paints Brand for the benefit of all parties. We participate in various mass brand advertising campaigns and promotions to create awareness and drive traffic to the stores. We will assist you with your local marketing efforts using the latest marketing techniques to promote sales.
