Auntie Anne’s, the world’s largest soft pretzel franchise, has a fantastic opportunity to acquire and existing kiosk at The Elmsleigh Centre, Staines-Upon-Thames.
Staines-Upon-Thames is west of London with great links to the capital. The Elmsleigh centre is a small but bustling shopping centre in the heart of the town. It currently has over 7.5 million visitors every year and the recent new Primark store is expected to boost this further.
In the middle of the central area of the mall is the Auntie Anne’s kiosk, it’s just over 2 years old and due to personal reasons, the current franchisee is looking to sell the store.
The asking price is £30,000 and therefore much lower than a new store would cost (c£145,000) and would be perfect for an owner-operator style franchisee looking to work in the store themselves.
"The brand is going from strength to strength and I am as excited now to work in this business as I was nearly 10 years ago."
"I can honestly say 3 years on and I still enjoy what I do – nothing beats the smell of the first batch of freshly baked pretzels in the morning."
