Sassi Gifts UK Ltd

Working for:

Sassi Gifts UK Ltd

Description:

A mobile gift shop service to care homes and sheltered housing across the UK enabling people to find it hard to get out to buy gifts, at a fraction of the high street price!

Sassi Gifts was formed in 2012 by Sandra Samra who is an ex nurse and could see an opportunity to supply a unique mobile gift service to residential homes and sheltered housing.

As well as providing this service to the care and sheltered housing industry, you can offer home parties and attend fetes / events. As we do not have the over heads of a shop we are able to offer affordable gift items to our clients whilst making good profits. Due to many carehome groups contacting us to supply into their homes we are now expanding our growing team of franchises.

This role suits people who need to work school hours or flexible hours and as it is your business you can control your own diary, decide the hours you want to work and go on holiday when it suits you!

To succeed in this business you need to be ambitious and driven, wanting to earn an excellent return for working as many hours as you choose (most of our franchises aim for 4 to 5 sales a week – a sale tends to last an hour which enables you to fix your business personal life around this role). Developing your area will take some work by calling care homes, emailing, letter writing and use of social media to spread the word of your business. Once you have got a booking for a sale, you will find the homes will rebook you as they enjoy the service so much.

A car and a phone is essential for this role – so please only apply if you have both of these.

EACH FRANCHISE HAS THEIR OWN AREA – NO COMPETITION!

The joy of joining Sassi Gifts is the fact you are providing a service which brings a smile to not just the residents of the care homes and sheltered housing but the staff who also enjoy the great priced gifts. You will make money whilst drinking tea and chatting!

Philippa's story

Franchisee

Name: Philippa

Location: Bristol

 

I am so glad I took on the Sassi Gifts franchise for the Bristol area. It is a great, low stress way of earning a living that fits in with running a home and family- it doesn’t even feel like work!

If you are self-motivated, confident and enjoy talking to people I can thoroughly recommend taking on a franchise. Generating leads and bookings is easy and I would say that I take bookings for around 80-90% of the establishments I contact. Everybody enjoys a visit from the Sassi Gifts shop and it’s lovely to chat to the residents, they always enjoy seeing somebody new as well as doing a little shopping.

If you want to work for yourself but enjoy the total support, enthusiasm, and backing from Sandra and Tina then go for it! They are a great team and are so encouraging, motivating and always available
