Marketing support: At a local-level, the marketing team provides Soul Origin franchise partners with consultancy and support in facilitating strategic marketing initiatives. Soul Origin actively encourages all franchise partners to be involved in local community events and organisations. On a national level, the annual marketing calendar includes above-the-line media and below-the-line advertising, new product development, seasonal campaigns, digital development, and promotions that communicate important community initiatives such as our Gold Partnership with the Starlight Children’s Foundation.

Training & Other Support: Our franchise partners are trained by experienced business professionals over a 5 week programme. Our training consists of in-store hands on experience in addition to classroom style learnings for back of house procedures.  This ensures new franchise partners learn everything they need to know to operate and grow a successful Soul Origin store including policies, procedures, best practice and more. Soul Origin’s dedicated New Store Opening team directly supports new franchise partners in the opening of their store. Thereafter, our franchise partner network, Operations, Marketing and extended Support Centre teams continue to assist franchise partners in both the day-to-day operation and long-term development of their business success including further training sessions if required. Our Retail operations   team schedules regular visits to every store in the Soul Origin network and provide support across all aspects of the business.   Regional group meetings are held throughout the year so franchise partners can connect, share information, ideas and network with other partners and support centre representatives. . This is also an opportunity for key departments from the Soul Origin Support Centre to share important updates, information, guidance and materials on existing and new products, operational improvements, marketing initiatives, industry news, and general business. Soul Origin’s Franchise Advisory Committee (FAC) is an intimate group of peer-nominated franchise partners who also gather 3-4 times every year to represent the national network on general and strategic brand decisions directly with the executive team. Soul Origin franchise partners are encouraged to communicate important suggestions or concerns which are presented in this intimate forum, via their nominated FAC member. 

Finance Options: Accreditation with ANZ and Silver Chef
