Mind Games has been operating successfully in a retail environment since 1977. We currently have eight stores operating in the eastern states of Australia including corporate, affiliates and franchises. A Mind Games store provides a comfortable income and interesting workplace for the motivated owner operator. We do not recommend this business opportunity for the passive investor.
Mind Games has never felt the need to actively seek out new franchisees and thus does not have glossy colour brochures or hard-sell material to send to prospective franchisee customers. Our relationship with franchisees is more along the lines of a handshake licence agreement. It is essentially a verbal arrangement based on mutual respect and common sense with the need for very little to be put down on paper. After the initial set-up phase, you will be responsible for your own buying and the day-to-day running of your business.
We highly recommend prospective applicants have access to capital funding of $100,000 to establish in a major metropolitan area or $80,000 for a rural environment. Our annual fee gives you the right to trade under the name Mind Games with all the benefits and responsibilities that entails.
The main benefit of an association with Mind Games is the experience gained from almost half a century in the Games industry. We have established very favourable terms with most of our suppliers and are able to source all lines essential for a successful games shop.
A Mind Games franchise is best suited to the hands-on owner-operator, preferably a person who has a love of games & puzzles in addition to a level business head. It is not recommended in an investment-only situation. A successful operator can expect an enjoyable hobby and a healthy income.
Some other benefits are as follows:
- help with shop location and lease negotiations
- supply of Mind Games stock control software
- access to Mind Games catalogues, stationery and website
- access to expert advice from all Mind Games owners & staff.
