Thirsty for a new business venture? If you’re a fan of fine wines or can’t pass up the perfect craft beer, a drink franchise could be the venture that will satisfy your interests
Here are a few of the opportunities available for drink franchises that we’ve picked — and how you can get involved in them.
The drinks sector in the UK is booming, and not just for alcohol. The UK is the largest producer of soft drinks in Europe and the second largest beermaker on the continent after Germany. No wonder the value of the UK drinks industry is over £55bn and set to soar by almost £2bn by 2020.
Many different types of business participate in the drinks industry. Whether a business is involved in distribution, is a local wine bar, or a teashop, all are helping the industry thrive — and offer drink franchises to suit your budget and interests.
1. Provide drinks at competitive prices at Bargain Booze
You could be the owner of a branch of one of the most successful convenience stores in the whole country by starting a Bargain Booze franchise. As well as selling drinks —alcoholic and soft — you can provide an entire range of convenient products that people need. You can get started with this franchise for £10,000 — and you’ll benefit from training and continued support.
2. It’s Boba Time with Bubbleology
Whether you call it boba, bubble milk tea, or something else entirely, bubble tea as a drink has taken off in the past few years. This tea-based drink originated in Taiwan in the 1980s and has become a global craze worth over $10bn. Bubbleology is one franchise opportunity that will allow you to catch onto this craze and start a successful business. As well as milk tea with tapioca or fruit bubbles, your Bubbleology business will also sell bubble waffle snacks to your customers.
3. Let the juice loose at Beleaf Juice Bar
Europe’s first juice bar to use fresh and natural ingredients exclusively burst onto the scene fifteen years ago. Inspired by South America, Beleaf offers smoothies and fresh juices with fruit and vegetables sourced from Asia, South America, and Africa. If you’re a fan of fresh ingredients and nutritious yet delicious drinks, then Beleaf is your chance to participate in the business to match your desires.
4. Take tea in style at CREAMS British Luxury
Tea is an institution in the UK. A marker of tradition or simply an everyday drink, tea can be served in many different ways. One franchise opportunity has decided to bolster the traditional aspect. CREAMS British Luxury was founded in 2012 by two brothers from Yorkshire and provide an antique atmosphere in which to take tea. To own your franchise you need £75,000, but you could also get involved with as little as £20,000 if teaming up with other franchise partners.
5. Join the biggest in the business with Shakeaway
This 500-strong franchise network claims to be the largest milkshake bar company in the world — and you could join it. Shakeaway launched in Bournemouth in 1999 and prides itself on its friendly staff and an ever-evolving menu of shakes, yoghurts, and much more. As a franchise owner, you’ll benefit from their strong marketing efforts which include a TV channel and radio station.
