Snack Aid has spent years cultivating relationships with the best suppliers in the confectionary world. 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!!

Our franchise opportunity stands out from the crowd and offers a very secure investment to its franchisees as well as excellent value for money. We believe our package and top quality products will always keep your business in ‘pole position’ amongst any competition you may encounter. For your peace of mind you can leave our franchise any time you wish. There is no tie in period or any penalties.

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.

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.
