VapeWild is leading the pack in the e-liquid industry. As the world moves in the vaping direction, VW invites you to join the ride. Learn more about how you can own your very own VW retail store!
Community interaction is key and our stores put you face-to-face with customers already familiar with a popular brand. Being in the heart of the places your customers live and work every day creates deeper connections, promoting vaping in a positive way.
With in-house manufacturing, inventory control is more efficiently managed and available faster. Our retail merchandisers keep your store running smoothly and keep in close contact from opening and beyond.
VapeWild enjoys a large social footprint in the hands of savvy brand marketers that will help put your store in direct sight of your customers. We work hand-in-hand with you to fulfill customer needs.
Analyzing your sales each month helps us keep your product offerings fresh and relevant to your customers. We maintain an extensive inventory of the most sought-after e-liquids and hardware for fast and efficient replenishment.
In 2012, three friends embarked on a quest to create a brand that would provide creative, delicious flavors, a unique approach to customer service, and a price point that couldn’t be beat. This zany, fun-loving, customer-oriented brand has grown into one of the largest manufacturers and distributors of vaping products in the world and you now can be apart of the ride with our new franchising opportunities. We have assembled a great crew of supporting staff to ensure a smooth experience and help create a successful environment for our franchisees.
Our ideal candidate will have a passion to serve the customer and a commitment to empower their employees. Further, our candidates should have an understanding of brand-building within the community through the use of local area marketing, as well as, a demonstrated ability to build a high-performance team dedicated to operational excellence and customer satisfaction. Lastly, our ideal candidate should have the desire and financial resources to develop or purchase one or more VapeWild Franchise Store(s).
The cost of opening a VapeWild Franchise Store can range between $85,000 and $156,000 (depending on the location), which includes the franchise fee, build-out, and initial startup expenses. This range can be significantly reduced with our store conversion program that current vape shop owners can take advantage to join VapeWild as a franchisee.
We would recommend having between three to six months worth of capital to cover costs after opening.
Currently there is a 1% of gross sales for local ad expenditures and a 1% of gross sales advertising fee for marketing and brand support. There is also a 5% of gross sales that is paid as a franchise royalty fee.
Aside from the initial training, opening-the-doors support, and general business consultation, you can also expect inclusion in our national marketing program, most up-to-date products, product training, compliance and regulatory support and guidance, and operational and systems integration and improvements.
Our ideal candidate will help build our brand within the community and have the desire to market and advertise in the local area. If a franchisee chooses, they can spend more on local advertising and we will provide some reimbursement of the ongoing marketing fee. Our franchisees will have the ability to choose local area marketing efforts with support from our marketing team.
We do not pretend to know everything, so we take input from individual franchisees very seriously. This definitely applies to product selection in local stores. All you have to do is get approval and we will source those products for you and send them as quickly as possible. Our prices will remain relatively constant through all channels and thereby franchisees do not have as much input on pricing.
The initial term of our franchise agreement is 10 years with up to two 5 year successor terms.
