Join the next big thing in UK vaping

Join the next big thing in UK vaping

If you’ve had a lifelong dream to own a business and be your own boss, but didn’t fancy the associated risks of going it alone, have you thought about franchising?

With over 90% of all UK franchisees reporting profitability over the previous 12 months (and did we mention that’s actually from 20 consecutive years’ worth of data?!), it would be a shame not to.

But before we go any further, let’s do a short personality quiz…

Are you ambitious?



Do you have people skills? Are you happy to put in the time and effort to create something amazing? Can you show grit?

If your answer to all of those is a fervent ‘yes’, then step right up, because you are exactly who we’re looking for!

The Red Box Liquids family

We’re a family run business through and through, set up with a view to creating a quintessentially British vape brand, with a key focus on the sale of UK-manufactured liquids and an overarching ambition to establish the brand in stores across the UK, rivalling the biggest names in the UK vaping industry.

You could say that we’re still a relatively new kid on the block, considering that the Red Box Liquids enterprise only started just over a year ago. Though you may be surprised to learn that in a matter of months, we had several keen investors quickly sign up and numerous leads in the pipeline before our flagship store (Red Box Vape in Nottingham) even opened.

Fast forward to today, our stores are continuing to make their way across the nation’s high-streets, with our supporting franchising scheme rapidly gaining momentum.

Why franchise with us?

Since our brochure contains the nitty-gritty (and you can request this using the contact details further down), we’ll just give you the abridged version here!

First and foremost, we take pride in our excellent customer service and believe in an ethical approach to the way we do things because at the heart of our business is the genuine desire to help encourage tobacco smokers to investigate alternative lifestyles.

Second to that is the level of support that we offer. We want our franchisees to feel fully in control of their own business, safe in the knowledge that our world-class business advisors are always just a phone call away, whether you have one or one hundred stores. In addition, we offer a specialist two-week training package, rather than throwing you in the deep end, plus we’ll help you find the perfect spot for your store(s) within a ring-fenced geographical area that won’t conflict with any other Red Box Vape business.

What’s more, we offer super flexible franchise packages, that allow you as the investor to run with a tailor-made franchisee, with a clear view of the future return on your investment.

Why the vape industry?

Business is booming in the vaping world, with the industry being worth an estimated £1bn currently and with a projected size of £4.6bn by 2021. If there was ever a good time to get involved with the UK vaping market – this is it!

Sure, the competition is becoming increasingly hot, especially with over 2,000 vape shops now registered in the UK. But rest assured, with in excess of 2.9 million vapers across the nation, there’s plenty of business to go around.

Not to mention the vaping populous is ever expanding, judging by a recent report from Public Health England (PHE), which has estimated roughly 20,000 cigarette smokers transitioning to vaping every year. It’s also great news for consumers and businesses alike that vaping has received such a huge amount of support from the likes of PHE and the NHS. When you look at recent studies from these bodies, where the effects of vaping and cigarette smoking have been compared, it’s not at all difficult to understand why.  

Whilst there are a million reasons to be a part of this explosive industry, those are a starter for ten.

Talk to us

Our friendly team are always on hand for a chat if you’d like to make an enquiry. When we’re not touring the UK, we’re most certainly on the end of the phone and/or email, and we also run a number of webinars that you can sign up to for an insight into our scheme, its benefits and the people you could potentially be working with.

In just a few weeks, we’ll also be exhibiting at the International Franchise Show at the ExCel in London on the 5th and 6th of April, which is the perfect opportunity for you to come and meet us for an informal discussion. Find us on in the coffee area next to the big red telephone boxes.

With the pedal to the metal, we’re going 100mph and we can’t wait to see what our second year in the business brings. If you have even the most niggling interest to know more, don’t hesitate - it would be great to bring you along for the ride!
