As long-time owners are looking to sell their business and begin the next chapter of their career, now is the time to re-franchise an established location with an existing customer base and proven revenue.
Opportunities are currently available in Fort St. John to franchise partners who are passionate about the brand and are ready to grow alongside it.
Whether you want to own your own business, switch careers, or diversify your investment portfolio, now is the time to consider the benefits of an M&M Food Market franchise.
A strong and stable franchise opportunity
M&M Food Market products are sold in over 2,100 locations across Canada. Since the first store opened in 1980, M&M Food Market has adapted to economic downturns, changing consumer tastes, and an increasingly competitive retail environment to emerge as Canada’s largest frozen food retailer.
It’s this history that guided M&M Food Market through the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Even as other industries were impacted by restrictions and public health policies, M&M Food Market Franchise Partners remained open, serving Canadians as an essential service.
Most stores achieved stable revenues and strong margins during an unpredictable period.
Innovating in times of uncertainty
With Canadians spending more time at home, many turned to the convenience of great-tasting, nutritious, and easy-to-prepare frozen meals.
In response to this surge in demand, M&M Food Market accelerated investments in key strategic initiatives such as eCommerce and other digital capabilities.
By providing more flexibility to customers, franchise partners expanded their reach and established new revenue streams to offset any short-term decline in in-store traffic.
Recently, the company launched a new eCommerce website that makes it easy for customers to purchase online, input dietary restrictions, and discover new products through personalized recommendations.
New pickup options have also been implemented across the country. Click & Collect, Curbside Pickup, and Delivery programs are now available in most stores, allowing customers to choose how they receive their orders.
Additionally, an expanded loyalty program, powered by a robust point-of-sale system, rewards customers and provides tailored discounts based on their preferences.
Together, these new digital initiatives demonstrate how M&M Food Market is continuing to innovate and enhance the customer experience across all channels.
Supporting franchise partners every step of the way
M&M Food Market provides the tools, training, and support needed to achieve success with the brand.
All franchise partners go through comprehensive classroom and in-store training prior to opening their own location. Cloud-based daily training programs, operational manuals and guidelines, ongoing development opportunities, and regular calls with local Area Managers ensure franchise partners always have a place to turn to for help.
Throughout the pandemic, M&M Food Market has stepped up support for franchise partners to help them navigate a challenging and evolving situation.
Stores implemented enhanced safety policies early in the pandemic. In addition to these national policies, Head Office worked closely with local franchise partners to understand and enforce the changing requirements in their market.
M&M Food Market has also taken significant steps to mitigate the impact of supply chain and labour market disruptions. While these challenges have affected every business to some degree, M&M Food Market has been able to keep products on the shelves and available to customers by working closely with suppliers and managing frozen inventory to reduce the risk of shortages.
With over 40 years of proven resilience and stability, M&M Food Market is a strong franchise brand, well-positioned for the future.
