Phat Pasty on BBC Working Lunch, January 2010
By combining freshly baked traditional Cornish pasties, high quality homemade sandwiches, baguettes, salads and soups and delivering with our unique brand and our distinctive Phat van, we are changing the 'delivered to work' marketplace.
The exclusive Phat Van has been developed by us to give our franchisees the opportunity to grow their own businesses, built around local offices, industrial estates and local events.
Your business working to our systems
This business is designed to be operated from home and can be either a simple 5-day operation or extended to include events and functions in the evenings or weekends. Over time the business may be extended to operate a number of Phat Vans from a small lock up industrial unit which acts as a 'hub'.
This is a franchise in which we provide a total package to get our franchisees up and running, with top quality support and expertise to help grow their own business.
Working from home, the business is designed to fit around individual lifestyles and to minimise the headaches associated with many other retail or franchised operations -
Say ''No!'' :
Rents to pay
People to employ
Money to chase
Major capital investment
The unique brand, marketing materials and the specially developed Phat Van allow franchisees to grow their own business, built around local offices, industrial parks and local events.
This is a franchise in which we provide a total package of training and support to get you up and running and to support you in growing your business.
- A comprehensive Operations Manual, recipe cards and business systems - follow our blueprint and successful model.
- Route planning and territory development - we are there to help you establish your area and business.
- Comprehensive operations and field training takes place in our business - we then come to your home to help you set up and establish your business.
- Ongoing support and assistance - we are there to provide ongoing support and to help you develop and grow your business.
The unique Phat Van
The Phat Van has been developed for the exclusive use of our franchisees - everyone who sees the Phat Van loves the great styling and instantly recognizes the brand. Operating from Monday - Friday and to a set routine from 9am - 1:30pm each day, we are able to bring a fabulous, 'funky' operation to the workplace - our customers just can't get enough of us!
The Phat Van can also be used at weekends to cater for events, from football tournaments, village fetes and private parties. It really is a versatile business that allows franchisees to develop their business to suit their circumstances.
The Phat Van is available to franchisees to lease over a 5 year period (subject to status), thus allowing franchisees to pay for the vehicle as they go along and reducing their capital outlay.
At the heart of this business are our award winning traditional, hand crimped, Cornish pasties from Newquay, Cornwall. These pasties are delivered to you frozen each week and you simply bake them off. Using our proprietary oven system, we are able to bake over 12 varieties of Cornish pasties and savoury items on the Phat Van each day. To compliment the Phat Pasty range we make fresh homemade Phin sandwiches, baguettes, salads and soups, each created to our own recipes and packaged in the Phat Pasty packaging… we really do have something for everyone.
Quality of Life
Working from home, this business is designed to fit around your lifestyle and to minimise the headaches of many franchise operations.
- Rents to pay
- People to employ
- Money to chase
- Major capital investment
This represents a great business return and allows franchisees to be up and running in as little as 8 weeks.
Some franchisees may decide to grow their business and to operate a management franchise, with a wider territory, developing a number of Phat Vans, which are then operated from a central lock-up kitchen and facility. We are able to help and advise you to find the best fit and the most appropriate route for you to take.
"Are you what we are looking for?"
This is an important and life-changing decision. You will have lots of questions and want to see how the business could work for you. We also want to be sure that our franchisees are a great fit with our business and meet our requirements in building the Phat Pasty brand. Once you have received our full information pack, completed our application form and had an informal chat, we can get together to show you this exciting opportunity.
