Franchise in small towns and in rural areas


What is the franchise concept in small cities characterized by?

  • The Globi concept is perfectly suited to the needs of franchise in small towns and rural areas, both in terms of area and range. According to the specificity of the places for which it is intended, the franchise - Globi grocery store is opened in premises with an area of at least 50 sq m, and the average sales area is 80 sq m. For comparison, Carrefour Express stores with a green face can have up to 200 sq m. sales area.

  • Globi stores are also different from the Carrefour Express franchise with an orange signboard that can be found in busy city locations. Due to the client's needs, we will not find Globi in the franchise such a large selection of take-out dishes (food to go), but the focus was on the offer of alcohol and the non-food range. In addition, by diversifying the offer, you can find approximately 400-500 Carrefour own brand products in Globi stores.

  • The franchise in small towns must take into account the convenience of customers who do not have access to such service outlets as in big cities. That's why the Globi franchise offers a number of additional services, such as paying bills at the checkout, cashback, telephone top-up and more.

    Although the latest concept of Globi has been designed for urban locations, the stores with this logo can also be found in several large Polish cities, for example in Warsaw there are 14 such stores.
