Franchise

We are always looking for new franchisee, and with a low start up package and if you are a Craft Beer lover, this may be an opportunity for you.

Our first beerdock opened with £1,800 of stock and about £500 of shopfitting 3  years ago and to date this has gone from strength to strength.

Our ideal location is a main road property with parking outside, and rental below £15,000 p.a

We have an in house property department to guide you through the leasing process, and user friendly low cost solicitors.

Depending on the shop itself, shopfitting is going to be in the order of £10,000 and opening stock is also in the order of £10,000 , and you can be on the way to selling Great Craft Beer.

The beer market in the UK is in excess of £18 billion and the Craft Beer market is about 2% of this so there is a long way to go, with 1,300 micro breweries in the UK alone.

At beerdock we have sourced and sold over 3,000 different beers and we think there could be at least 100,000 to go at world wide.

We source direct from small breweries where we can, and avoid  wholesalers that put on a huge margin, which we fell undermines the breweries brands.We sell as cheaply as we can.

We buy direct so the sales go direct to the small brewery, and supports the local economy.

If you feel that beerdock is an opportunity give us a call and we can talk you through the process and let you know the support we can offer.
