Full Description

Snack Aid is the only franchise company in this sector that offers both snacks and children’s activity packs. 

This means, within this entire sector, you will be the ONLY franchisee in your area able to offer these packs to customers in restaurants, cafes, dentists and other such places where snacks are not wanted. How amazing is that! 

We can launch your business by physically siting 300 boxes for you in the first 2 weeks, plus we offer the lowest priced package in this sector for the amount of stock offered. 

Several charity snack franchisees have left other companies to become Snack Aid franchisees. They knew, more than anyone, that we offer the best franchise along with amazing support.

We have the best and most interesting range of over 120 lines (more than anyone else in this field), including quality sweets, flapjacks and cakes that help us outsell our competitors.

You will receive a very useful bespoke database to automate and print off your rounds in an efficient route order with just one click. (Only from Snack Aid)

Leave when YOU want, penalty free. We have a very fair franchise agreement. No minimum order and no fees. 


We are a leading company in the fundraising snack sector and are the exclusive snack selling partner of the very popular children’s charity Make-A-Wish Foundation UK. Our products are sold from Make-A-Wish branded boxes, which are situated in various workplaces, retail and leisure establishments throughout local areas. When customers buy a snack or activity pack they help raise money for Make-A-Wish as well as provide an income for our franchisees who supply the local service.

Please feel free to contact Make-A-Wish for feedback on our partnership with them. They receive a first class service and are absolutely delighted with us. Unlike most companies, the amount we pay to the charity is uncapped.

Anticipated income is £30,000 to £35,000 per annum.

Dual Franchise: Our market just got bigger

As well as the snack box sector, we have now opened up a market exclusive to just our franchisees with a product that is showing great promise in our sector; children’s activity packs. These packs contain 3 colouring/sticker/puzzle books plus crayons and unlock businesses which would be inaccessible with our competitor’s packages (have you ever seen a dentist reception selling sweets!) Often in these establishments, families visit with children who may need some entertainment whilst their parents eat, drink or wait for an appointment. At £1, the activity packs offer great value and convenience and only Snack Aid can offer you the supply you need to fulfil this part of the market. 

How It Works

We give you a large exclusive territory and provide you with stock and display boxes on competitive terms; the price includes the charity donation too, so all the money you collect is yours to keep.

In the first few weeks, your business will start to be built by having boxes placed in workplaces or anywhere that people visit e.g. offices, school staff rooms, dentists, pubs, hairdressers, shops, doctor surgeries, restaurants etc. Depending on which package you choose, you can either place the boxes yourself or have them physically sited for you. Customers buy the products for £1 each and place their cash in the concealed moneybox. Every two or three weeks, you return, remove YOUR cash and restock with more products – it’s that simple!


  • No fees of any sort. Free delivery. Flexible hours. Excellent on-going support.
  • Simple bespoke database to automate your rounds (only available from Snack Aid). Removes the headache of calculating when your customers are due a delivery and prints off your weekly rounds in an efficient route order with one click, making your business significantly easier and more profitable.
  • Unlike most companies, the amount we pay to the charity is uncapped.
  • You only pay for stock and display boxes.
  • All charity is good, but it is very important in this sector to have a well known children’s charity displayed prominently on your boxes as this will help ensure your business is successful, particularly long term. Ask yourself; does it tug at the heartstrings? The well known Make-A-Wish branding on your snack boxes will ensure that you are well represented in this capacity and this will have a positive effect upon your sales.
  • We offer more products than other companies, over 120 lines. Our products are excellent. They have to be, otherwise our business would fail as it’s all about repeat sales. Included are hand-baked flapjacks, cakes and bespoke sweet mixes that you will not find elsewhere. We also have up to 25% more weight in our sweet bags than some other companies. 
  • Simple business to run, full training provided and no experience is necessary.
  • Free franchise pack including an expensive electronic coin counter/sorter, charity branded clothing, database, ID badge, stationery and more.
  • Free newsletters to insert in your customers boxes to give them regular feedback.
  • We have been in the retail sector since 1995 and have a successful track record. We will be here for a very long time!

Try Before You Buy

Before you decide to join us, you will accompany us on our own rounds to experience the business ‘hands on’.  We will ensure you will receive a very in depth understanding of this business so you can decide if its right for you. You will be under no obligation to enter into an agreement unless you feel completely comfortable, in regard to both your expected income and what running your business will entail under the direction of Snack Aid.

Franchise Packages

There will be nothing more to pay out for other than additional stock and occasional display boxes. As our financial success rests solely upon the orders we receive from our franchisees, we are only successful if they are, which is your guarantee that we will do all we can to make you successful.

Package 1 – The franchisee sites the boxes.

£3,495 plus VAT offers a mix of 7280 sweets, flapjacks, cakes and activity packs plus 350 Make-A-Wish display boxes.

What We Require From You

You will need to operate the business on a full time basis, have a friendly pleasant personality and a desire to be successful. All you need to get up and running is some storage – a garage or spare room is ideal (or alternatively you can rent storage space cheaply) and a dependable car.
