Calling for Challenge
We would like to extend the EstateEconomy™ business Model into a franchising model, which we called it “EstateEconomy™ Franchise Model”. It is a bite-size, low-cost franchise model for Franchisees (eg neighbourhood stores with under-utilized capacities) to collaborate with Franchisers (Corporate RSPs) in the same industry. These Franchisers of the same industry could be larger Confectionery/Bakery stores who want to tap on excess production capacities offered by franchisees to help scale their businesses without investing in new in-house baking facilities.
We are inviting tech companies, tech consultants, business consultants and brand consultants to bring in your existing corporate customers to explore the possibility of going into a 3-way partnership. Your customers may fall into the following categories:
• Local corporates who are not into franchise yet but like to grow their network of neighbourhood stores using this franchise model;
• Local corporates who are already into franchise but are facing bottlenecks due to shortage of manpower and capacity constraints for their existing store networks;
• Foreign corporates who are keen to have their new presence in Singapore using this franchise model;
• Foreign corporates who are already into franchise in Singapore but are facing bottlenecks due to shortage of manpower and capacity constraints for their existing store networks;
Condition of “One-Corporate-Per-Type-Of-Service, first-come-first-served, on an EXCLUSIVE BASIS in Singapore” applies. i.e. we are looking for ONE corporate as franchiser for EACH of the following products/services which will be exposing your product/services in 5,000 Estate-Services-Marketplace. Examples (not exhaustive):
• Baked pastry
• BBQ meat
• Bubble tea
• Fried chicken
• Fried snacks
• Soya beancurd
• Steamed bun
• Various hawker food
• Etc etc…
