Established in 2012, Charisnack is the original, home-based, snack distribution franchise. Our self-service vending boxes are placed into businesses and workplaces allowing employees and customers to enjoy a range of confectionery, snacks and healthy options; there is no charge to the site, they simply pay for the products they eat.
The Charisnack model is based on charity partnerships and cause-related marketing; we raise money for charity through the sale of our products. We were one of the first brands to pioneer the cause-based snacking sector and remain one of the leading brands with over 47 franchises across the UK.
All charity donations come directly from head office. When a franchisee purchases stock from us, a percentage of the purchase price is deducted and donated directly to the charity. This means that ALL the money taken in the vending boxes belongs to you.
Charisnack supports Bliss, a charity that helps premature and sick babies in their first days and weeks of life. We’re extremely proud of our existing franchisees who, between them, have raised a staggering £26,000 while running their lucrative businesses.
With the backing of the Delicious Ideas Food Group—a £10million snack producer, distributor and private label packaging company with over 30 years’ experience in the UK & European confectionery and snacks market, Charisnack has ambitious plans to develop the franchise network into all major cities and towns in the UK.
The Charisnack franchise opportunity
Charisnack franchisees sell a range of branded products from impactful self-service point of sale boxes located in workplaces, shops, leisure centres and other locations. There is no charge to the site to host the boxes, they simply pay for the products they eat.
The Charisnack franchise offers flexibility and great earning potential. As it can be run on a full or part-time basis, it allows you to work around existing obligations making it an ideal opportunity for those looking for a second source of income or wishing to work around family commitments.
Our franchisees benefit from the lowest purchase price of products in this sector and from stock offers every month such as Buy 3 get 1 Free, making this franchise the most profitable in this sector.
We have had several franchisees transfer over to the Charisnack network from our competitors. This shows that we have the best value, the best support and are overall the number one franchise network across the industry.
