There are other supermarket franchises available, but none provide top-notch grocery store licensing opportunity training and support quite like Save A Lot. We specialize in using an efficient and effective time-tested model that allows our Retail Partners to build a thriving business.
Independent grocery stores are experiencing a boom: these stores now account for 33% of overall U.S. grocery sales. It’s a great time to become part of this booming industry, and there’s no better partner than Save A Lot. Save A Lot works hard to provide industry-leading retail store training and support.
Starting A Grocery Business
Save A Lot works with Retail Partners with a wide range of experience – don’t let inexperience prevent you from taking advantage of this exciting opportunity in starting a grocery business! Some of our Retail Partners have run grocery stores before, while others haven’t, so we’ve designed our comprehensive training program to get Partners up to speed.
Some of the resources we provide to Retail Partners include:
- Site selection support
- Operations and distribution support
- A detailed operations manual
- Ongoing training as needed
- And more!
Real Estate Guidance
You can count on Save A Lot to provide you with strong real estate support throughout the process of opening a grocery store. For starters, we’ll help you choose the right location to serve target customers. There’s a lot that goes into the site selection criteria, so our team of professionals provides expert knowledge, time and cost-saving tools, and industry best practices regarding lease negotiations.
Save A Lot stands out from the competition in many ways, but possibly one of the best reasons to consider our model is that we focus on building smaller footprint stores. Smaller stores are more convenient for customers, are less expensive to lease and build-out, and help keep overhead costs low.
Once we find the perfect space for your store, we’ll provide you with customized store layouts, prototype building plans, connections to contractors, and more right up to your grand opening. Our strategic layouts are designed for simplicity, both for customers and Retail Partners alike. We carefully lay everything out to maximum impact on your bottom line.
The ongoing support that Save A Lot provides to Retail Partners sets us apart from the competition. We’re dedicated to helping you not only get your store up and running but also seeing your business grow. Our vested interest is the driving force behind the ongoing support resources we’ve developed.
Save A Lot isn’t your typical grocery store support team: we’re here to help you achieve your growth goals. With our field operations support, we’ll keep your business running smoothly and profitably with time-tested operations procedures, an efficient point-of-sale system, unit-level reporting and analytics, and inventory management in place.
Retail Partners are able to tailor their selections to the communities they serve, and our distribution support keeps stores stocked with the high-value products they need. Save A Lot utilizes 13 dedicated distribution centers to keep shelves stocked and reduce waste; our Retail Partners can use this support to offer consistently low prices and industry-leading service.
Save A Lot’s grocery store licensing opportunity training and support will walk you through the process of opening a grocery store business and set you up for success.
