Camile is London and Ireland’s fastest growing online delivery restaurant group. Our delicious healthy Thai food is cooked to order and delivered within 30 minutes in an approximately 2 mile radius around each restaurant. Some of our restaurants offer dine in, and all offer our menu for carry out and collection.
From our London base in Tooting Bec, we’re looking for ambitious owner operators, who see themselves opening multi-unit businesses in the years ahead, to join with us in expanding the business in South East England.
Get in on the ground floor of the booming online delivery restaurant industry, with our fast- growing sophisticated, disruptive restaurant brand. As a franchisee, you’ll be your own boss supported by our well- constructed franchise system. This will allow you to build a serious multi-unit business, create a strong income stream and opportunities for significant capital growth.
From helping you find your location and negotiating the best deal possible - we’ll oversee the design, construction and equipping of the new restaurant, to our detailed specification.
We’ll then help you to open it by assisting with staff recruitment, training, a launch promotion, setting up suppliers and services and full hand handholding during the launch period.
Additionally, you will develop your own management team to execute your growth strategy and benefit from group purchasing and a value- added supply chain.
If you’re interested in finding out more about Camile, and whether our business opportunity is right for you, then we’ve outlined below the process we follow. This is to get you to an informed position, from which you can make your mind up.
Franchised businesses offer a structure for starting, operating and growing a business. At Camile, we’ll deliver the framework around which our business is built and provide comprehensive training programmes that’ll cover mar- keting, operations and accounting. There are many reasons why becoming a franchisee can prove to be more suc- cessful than starting your own business:
Firstly, you’ll be joining a proven and established brand. This is a huge advantage as they’ve already developed a formula to achieving success and possess a strong customer base.
Secondly, there are training programs and ongoing support. You’ll be brought up to speed on the most success- ful ways to run the business. Additional, franchise firms have staff dedicated to providing constant assistance to their franchisees. Whether it’s an operational or marketing issue, you won’t be alone in resolving the problem.
Thirdly, the franchisor will assist with property searches and eventual construction. Most franchisors will have a property criterion and will want that to be met. They’ll help their franchisees best sites, negotiate a deal and design the layout of your property. This will help keep the costs down and allow franchisees to maximise the effi- ciency of your investment.
Finally, the biggest reason is risk avoidance. When buying a franchise, you’ll avoid most of the uncertainty that comes with starting your own business. You are joining a stable structure, that offers you plenty of opportunities to succeed. You’ll be able to look at other franchisees and use them as reference points of what to do and not to do.
