Own a Olive~Me Store & Wholesale Information

db_file_img_1621_220x145Are you interested in opening your own Olive~Me & Co store or your own branded Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar Store, adding Olive Oils/ Balsamic Vinegars and hand crafted gourmet pantry products to your product lineup in your specialty food or gift store?

For those interested in owning an Olive~Me & Co store: We offer an interactive gourmet specialty shop packed with international flair, flavor and a passion for food, providing our guests with an unparalleled gourmet food experience.

Founded in 2010 by Missy Haggarty, Olive~Me & Co has focused on becoming a Canadian name synonymous with high-quality international taste and experience. We are gaining rapid brand recognition in the Ontario marketplace, and we recently expanded into Quebec. Primarily through wholesale and licensing, our vision is to make Olive~Me & Co a household name, providing gourmet foodies in local markets the opportunity to experience our high quality product.

We are actively seeking passionate entrepreneurs who love olive oil, vinegar, and gourmet food in general and are ready to chase the dream of running their own business. What Olive~Me & Co has to offer is a retail concept vastly different from anything in the market and one that appeals to the gourmet food enthusiasts.

As an Olive~Me & Co business owner, you will have the opportunity to take customers on a tour of culture, healthy eating, and amazing flavors all in the comfort of your own retail store!

At Olive~Me & Co, we believe we offer a one of a kind business opportunity that is fun, economically attractive and personally rewarding. However, finding the right “fit” for you as a potential business owner with our licensing model is what is most important.

Immediately upon taking the first step toward owning an Olive~Me & Co store, you are connected to a team of food industry and business experts who have successfully introduced a brand to the Canadian marketplace.

With a shift in our economic climate, individuals are seeking the opportunity to be their own boss and place their career and income prospects in their own hands. Our licensing model represents a great way to get a fast start with a business of your own without the start-up challenges of creating a recognizable trade name and brand identity, formulating the interior design of a shop, developing a merchandise plan and establishing a supply network, among other things.

If you are weighing the pros and cons of opening a similar independent store on your own, or joining a licensing network, here are a few things an Olive~Me & Co store has to offer.

You will…..

  • Be in business for yourself but not alone
  • Incur lower start up expenses given the prior store opening experience
  • Receive ongoing training and best practice advice from members of the licensing team who are living the brand every day
  • Benefit from product purchasing power, private label capability, and an established supply chain that Olive~Me & Co possesses
  • Have access to services and support of the licensing staff to assist with creating local marketing programs and address any business issues which may arise
  • Have a defined territory of operation within the network, which will protect you from direct competition
  • Benefit from being an immediate member of a team of passionate business owners with a wealth of best-practice knowledge ready to share

We have researched and tested our retail concept throughout Canada to ensure the international concept could catch on in various markets. In Canada, the consumer reaction to the store, products and service has been extremely positive.

We feel strongly that Olive~Me & Co is well-positioned to capture an untapped, unique market segment and have established a development plan to take advantage of the health-conscious consumer trends. Furthermore, with the unstable economy, discerning consumers are opting for more practical purchases for their families and for gift occasions in addition to opting to dine at home instead of eating out. Our product offering aligns perfectly with these trends in consumer behavior.

Given the personal service and guest relationship aspects of our concept, we believe that our licensing model is the best way to spark our passion for taste into communities across Canada. Our ignition won’t wait on the economy, either. If anything, we feel now is the best time to open new stores and position our brand for the future.

If you share this same vision and belief in the market potential, contact us today to learn how you can capitalize on this unique opportunity. info@olivemeco.com
