LAKE DISTRICT FRANCHISE OPPORTUNITY

KINDRED SPIRITS RETAIL LIMITED

* EXCITING AND ESTABLISHED BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY *

Kindred Spirits was established in 2018 by local business entrepreneur Ollie Barker and his wife Tasha Barker. Formerly of Diageo, Ollie’s vision and Tasha’s guidance helped to create the retail brand and business which confidently specialises in the selling of niche alcoholic spirits through an attractive range offering, carefully sourced from a range of British distillers, not found on the high street.

Since 2018, the company has grown steadily and now has shops in Ambleside, Keswick and Beverley. The operational side of the business has grown rapidly from general retailing, to online, to sit down tasting events.

In addition, their lines feature throughout the UK in numerous garden centres, various farm shops, Not On The High Street and other strategic shopping locations.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of the growing Kindred Spirits brand and the opportunity will include: -

• A major marketing push and brand activations happening in select retail outlets throughout the country that will only benefit existing stores.
• New product development pipeline that franchised stores will have preferential access to.
• Repeat custom time and time again.
• Opportunity to do in store paid tastings after hours to increase revenue, and have new staff trained.

The business benefits from a high rebook rate from repeat guests and has a solid proportion of longer lets over 3 days as well as a strong booking rate from the weekend tourist market and business guests.
