The business expansion model is a simple distributorship, not a franchise. There are therefore no up-front fees, no invasion of your sales figures, and no insistence that your store look like 100 others. You buy at wholesale pricing. Your first order is prepaid. With good credit references, your future orders will be Net 30.
All candles are shipped FOB Mentor, Ohio.
Because this product line is positioned at the top of the market, we are very particular about where and how the candles will be presented. Distributorships are limited to an enclosed retail space in which the environment can be controlled. Anyone who has visited Gelissimo in Brick Market Place, Newport, Rhode Island, knows exactly what this means. Soft music, good halogen lighting, informed sales personnel who take the time to explain the product to the customer.
We will not consider mall kiosks, craft store booths, flea markets, home parties, or any other venue in which our product will be confused with the array of home-crafted, imported, or otherwise inferior gel candles appearing on retail shelves.
We protect each distributor's customer base by not placing distributors within 30 miles of each other. Please indicate your proposed location in the form below.
