Dollar General Franchise Opportunity

The Dollar General Franchise specializes in discount stores that are a popular shopping attraction to people throughout the country.

This franchise opportunity is ideal for those that are interested in starting up shop with a reputable franchiser.

The Dollar General discount stores have around 8,000 establishments in the country within approximately 32 states. The concept of the Dollar General store is to provide affordable yet quality products that target low-income patrons, as well as those that are determined to save a decent buck. The Dollar General store has various items in its inventory including various food, apparel, cosmetics, and other basic household items and appliances. The General Merchandise at the Dollar General Store Franchise wholesale has basically everything and anything you will need for yourself and for your home.

Owning a Dollar General Store Franchise will allow you to benefit from a proven business system that includes the essential marketing and financing techniques you will need to develop in order to manage a Dollar General Store. With this type of franchise, you will need to assess yourself on certain factors such as how much you are willing to engage in setting up your store. It will also be advisable to have your own business plan in mind so as to be able to know what your needs are for the company you want to engage in. This will be extremely helpful and essential when you meet with your franchisor as you may want to open up or discuss certain aspects of the business and make agreements and compromise on your plans. The good thing about engaging with a Dollar General franchise is that they are adept at handling those entrepreneurs that are first-timers when it comes to managing the business. With the company’s workforce culture and determination to strengthen the relationship it has with its franchisees, you can rest assured you will be given the ideal training and ongoing support throughout the course of your business.

Home-based in Goodlettsville Tennessee, the Dollar General Corporation is considered the largest small-box discount retailer in the nation as it makes shopping for basic home needs easy and hassle-free. The prices are low scale and meet to those in the general public. There are over 9,300 stores in around 35 states to date. The company reels in an average of $13.04 billion in sales in its around 7,200 square foot stores, with 9 distribution centers and over 85,900 employees. There are about 10,000 American products available at every Dollar General Store.

Another factor that makes the Dollar General Franchise an ideal choice is a fact that the company is continually participative in community involvement. Helping others in the local community and donating and assisting in charitable institutions and those that are geared towards promoting literacy among individuals. Truth be told you will not only be part of a profitable business venture but will also benefit from the fulfillment contained with knowing that you will also be helping other members of the community in the process.
