Daily Life of a Franchisee
A typical day starts with prepping the store for customers, ensuring the environment is clean and tidy and stock is displayed correctly.
With the doors open and customers arriving it will be your duty to explain the benefits of electronic cigarettes while trying to identify the correct equipment for their lifestyle and needs.
The vast majority of your day will be spent communicating with customers on a personal level and engaging with the local vaping community.
Passion is key!
