More information.

What is a franchise? It's like a 'business in a box'.

Put simply a franchise is a way of starting your own business that has been already proven to be successful in another geographical area. A franchise means you can have your own business, but you are not alone. Business materials and processes have already been designed for you to use. The franchise head office and other franchise holders in other areas support and advise you on how to get up and running and how to become successful. You are becoming part of something that WILL be successful if you put in the time and effort.

Some words directly from the franchise company:

Baby & Children’s Market Ltd. is a well respected and established national company set up in 2010 that runs high quality nearly new baby & children's markets across the United Kingdom. Our regular markets provide the local parental community with a great opportunity to reduce their costs of raising a growing family by coming along and setting up a pop up stall to sell on their high quality nearly new baby and children's items to money savvy parents keen to save a fortune on children's items.

Along with local mums & dads who attend our events we also have a number of local businesses in the children's industry we support that showcase and selling their unique products and services at each event.
