Top 10 questions about our Show Distributor Businesses-new areas available now

The purpose of this Blog is to look at the top 10 areas that prospective Show Distributors have questions about before starting.

1 Is it a Franchise? No. It is a standalone business that you will run, buying stock from us and selling it at events in your Territory. There are no fees for joining, for ongoing marketing or monthly fees.

2 Where do I find events that are suitable? We will provide you with a list of over 50 types of events that are now attended by our existing Show Distributors. Call with us before booking an event just to check that the costs vs anticipated sales ratio is about right.

3 How quickly will I be earning money? The target is to get to the stage where all your stock funded out of show profits-this usually is within @ 3-6 Show days. Most franchises take at least a year to achieve anything near this.

4 What happens if I buy too much stock or want to retire? All stock comes with a 100% buy back guarantee – you get back what you paid for the stock, as long as it is a sellable condition.

5 How do I lay out a Trade Stand? We provide photographs to you showing how to do this. Part of the training provided (free to you) cover stand layout and presentation and what you say to customers at shows.

6 Do I need an Alcohol Licence? Yes. Sometimes the organisers of an event have this in place. We recommend that you take a 1 day course and obtain your Personal Licence-this then means that you can apply for Temporary Event Notices for events and have your own Licence for the Show.

7 The price of the brands look high-do people pay this much? Yes. We have been trading via the Show Distributor model for over 20 years and it works throughout Great Britain.

8 Are there any brands that are only for Show Distributors? Yes. We have a range of Single Cask Single Malt Scotch whiskies that are not available on our Website or in any retailer. This means that it is much more likely that customers will buy from you on the Show day.

9 I have never sold anything before. Will I be able to do this? Yes. We provide training before your first event, at our Annual Show Distributor Meeting (accommodation, meals and refreshments paid for by us) or at an actual event.

10 Do I have my own Territory. Yes and you get an Agreement confirming this. You then have the right to book events in your Territory. If you wish to do an Event in another Territory, just call up the Show Distributor who works there.

If you have any other questions not answered here, just call Roy Lewis on 01436-679935
