Case Study
Not only did we earn back our initial investment in our first year but we did it twice!

Charisnack Perth is run by a group of 4 family and friends from Poland and Hungary. Tibor Gorbics tells us their story. “We became a ChariSnack franchisee in February 2020. Our situation was unique in that we started our business just before the first lockdown in 2020!  We were not sure at that time if we would still be in business by now. We have however seen growth and it is just the beginning of 2021! We are the living proof that Charisnack is a tried and tested business model and is truly “bulletproof’’.
