Until now little has been done in terms of marketing locally or other forms of advertising with the exception of advertising created within the franchise group. A point of sale system has been installed & has proven very beneficial as far as making the store very easy to run, keeping track of sales, ordering & stock levels. With this system in place it would make it infinitely easier to cope with an increase in sales, should the new owner put in place marketing strategies to increase sales.
This business enjoys the backing of a website & a strong presence in the White/Yellow Pages. As part of this franchise group, the business can rely on active advertising support, including the co-ordination of promotional campaigns for all stores.
