    Become a Master Franchisee located on the Central Coast

    Located in the Tuggerah Business Park is an opportunity to buy a proven Master Franchise business from the owners who after 7 years have decided to retire. This Master Franchise territory has been operating since 2000. Currently there are 8 Master Franchise territories across Australia and New Zealand, with over 200 Franchisees and Distributors, servicing more than 55,000 workplaces in a fortnightly cycle.

    Current retail sales exceed 50 million across Australia and New Zealand with more than 4 million products sold.

    Currently owned by Quarto Inc. a publicly listed company on the London Stock Exchange, the business began its existence as Lifetime Distributors the Book People in 1991. Since then the company has emerged as the largest franchised operating display marketing company in the world.

    In 2014, Quarto decided to merge the two business entities in Australia and New Zealand and rebrand the organisation as Books & Gifts Direct……

    This merger has resulted in a centralisation of resources at the Franchisor level, thereby reinforcing its buying leverage, merchandising, marketing and information technology expertise.

    Currently the organisation is investing heavily in its IT infrastructure with the rollout of its custom built and owned Central Management System for Master Franchisees and Field Unit Device for Franchisees and Distributors, further demonstrating the investment and future intent of the Franchisor to further grow and build on the solid foundations of this business model.

    Some of the benefits include but are not limited to;

    Products that are easy to sell

    Books & Gifts Direct offer a range of products; they sell these at 50-70% lower than the recommended retail price; which makes everyone happy. They as a business know their products inside and out and hand pick each item. This ensures that it is selling products that people will want.

    Proven sales model

    This is proven by the fact that they sell more than 4 million Books and Gifts per year and that their overall annual revenue total exceeds a massive 50 million across Australia and New Zealand.

    Proven business model

    With a comprehensive management system and working closely with the Franchisor and Master Franchisees, the business model continues to evolve and improve. Unlike other franchise models there is no ongoing franchise royalties normally associated in a franchise system.

    Opportunity to Buy a Books & Gifts Direct Master Franchise is rare

    After 7 successful years an opportunity now exists for the right person to purchase this business and take the impetus of the rebranding to exploit the untapped potential of this burgeoning territory.
