Pickled Pepper Books is an interactive, specialist children's bookshop for kids & their grown ups. Built around a curated range of children's books, we offer great recommendations delivered by enthusiastic staff, and an events programme with the aim of bringing books to life.
Our events include opportunities to meet authors and illustrators in-store and in schools, preschool activities, after school/holiday illustration, science and book clubs and children's birthday parties. All this is in a family friendly setting where grown ups have the chance to relax with a coffee too.
Pickled Pepper Books was established as a bricks and mortar bookshop and events space in 2012 and has seen consistent growth. In year 5 we established a more thorough and well thought through events and activities programme and developed online sales to support this. With our well established and tried and tested model we are now seeking initial interest from potential franchisees to join Pickled Pepper Books in the next step of our success story.
Franchisees should, first and foremost, have enthusiasm and the ability to deliver a personal service to customers, including children. Previous experience in bookselling or events management is not required as full training and a comprehensive package of support is provided.
With a typical overall investment level of approximately £60,000 including franchise fee and all initial setup costs, this is an affordable opportunity for those looking to invest in a rewarding business.
