If you are considering buying a retail franchise, check out the upcoming Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo in Brisbane in July which will include franchise brands such as Lenard's.

Lenard’s is refurbishing the store network over the next 36 months to achieve greater customer service opportunities as well a modernised, more aesthetically pleasing store environment.

On offer is a turnkey store solution with an investment of $350,000 to $450,00 depending on the site (updated investment amounts are currently being costed to be available in the coming months).

“We have recently launched 14 new Ready to Cook product lines into our North and Central Queensland stores with huge success,” sales Danny Messenger, national franchise development manager. “We are set to launch the Ready to cook range to the rest of the network in the first quarter of FY15/16.”

The company focuses on generating profitable businesses with franchisees in a collaborative manner, using Regional Advisory Councils and National Advisory Councils as the channels.

There are challenges, of course; the changing retail face and the way consumers shop, for instance. “We have analysed these and have systems to adapt to the changes, however, we are mindful of this ever changing environment and continue to be alert to these factors,” explains Messenger. “Lenard’s has been in the fresh food market for over 27 years and will continue to evolve and adapt to suit the changing market demands for years to come.”
