Gross Direct Franchise – Working in Style
The Franchising industry has gained an exciting new addition for potential franchisees to invest in. Since 1964, when Gross & Co was founded, they have specialised in work wear, footwear and equipment. All over South Africa industry workers are clothed in and protected by quality products produced by this company. Their product mix includes exciting brands such as Industrial works, Altitude Corporate, Safety Works, Uniform Works, and Foot Works as well as the internationally recognised brand of Chef Works.
Gross & Co has been market leaders in the uniform clothing industry with the introduction of innovative and exciting designs over the years. In 2010 Gross & Co decided to expand their business model through franchising and offer their years of expertise to entrepreneurs who want to invest in a successful business model. The model is called Gross Direct and is based on the existing factory outlet store in Edenvale.
Gross & Co is looking for individuals who are willing and able to share the company’s values and ideals. The franchisee must have the ability and desire to deal well with people as well as being service-driven and quality-conscious. Furthermore, the franchisee must be self-motivated to take action and follow the successes of others. They should have a good work ethic and not be afraid to roll up their sleeves and work side-by-side with their employees. In addition, the potential franchisee needs to know the value of communication and people skills as well as being prepared to spend time and energy cultivating customer loyalty.
The franchisee needs to be a “hands on operator” in order to achieve these objectives. They are looking for persons in the age group of 30yrs to 60yrs with approximately R750 000 unencumbered funds, and preferably a resident in the nearby area in which the franchise is to be situated.
