The franchising format 'on a sale-or-return basis'
A calculated risk
Our franchisees only pay for the goods sold, without the risk of unsold stock that is at the expense of the company including the collection of unsold stock at the point of sale. This business formula guarantees a powerful product range in line with market demands and an easy management of stocks with huge cost containment.
Guaranteed and constant profit margin
A great certainty
The profit margin for the franchisee remains unchanged and guaranteed during both regular season and the sale season.
The lighthouse of our work
Our management software guarantees stores with fast and accurate new ranges of goods sold in compliance with existing stocks. The franchisee can easily manage the several activities carried out in the point of sale: sales statistics, inventory check-in and check-out reports, staff shifts scheduled according to goods sold in the several working time slots, direct contact with the head company, etc.
No false starts
The opening of a new point of sale is a decision process subject to an accurate analysis by the Development Department team. No detail is overlooked, but everything is supported by tangible and quantifiable values thanks to the analysis of tangible elements such as the market area, the pedestrian volumes, the location of the prospective point of sale, the presence and sales results of our competitors.
Communication and Marketing
A crucial support to sales strategies
The brand image in the point of sale is managed by the Communication & Marketing Department through always fresh materials. The promotional strategy is carefully coordinated by marketing experts in collaboration with sales supervisors. When franchisees wish to promote the brands with local advertising events, the Communication & Marketing Department helps them with the planning of the event sending out all the materials needed. There is a corporate policy about local advertising events and actions regulating brand communication to final customers.
Guarantee for growth
For Teddy Corporate Group personnel training is a fundamental element for the development of a point of sale: store personnel must be trained by our experts with regard to corporate strategies and the most effective sales techniques, either at our company or in the pilot shops. The franchisees and their teams, even after the opening of the store, will be supported by our sales consultants and visual merchandisers.
The heart of the store
Each point of sale must have a stockroom inside or outside its premises, whose area must be suitable to allow a management in line with our sales strategies and needs. A store achieves the best performances only when supported by an efficiently-managed stockroom and stocks.
Town centres of large or important cities
and shopping centres with a good market area.
