How to Own Sanrio Franchise

The Sanrio Company specializes in the production of cute Japanese cultural elements and would make for an interesting franchise option as it implements the traditional expression of Japanese culture in a cute yet modern way.

Sanrio Co.,Ltd. Is a Japanese company which focuses on the trendy and artistic display of Japanese culture through icons of cute or kawaii products.

Sanrio has a vast array of products with their own unique lines that are popular not only in Japan but worldwide. Sanrio’s most popular character is Hello Kitty which is one of the most best selling brands in the global market to this day.

Sanrio is not limited to character promotion through their products but also through publishing and movie productions. The company also partners with various food establishments of which it also shares franchises. Sanrio has rights to Peanuts characters in Japan and owns an animatronics establishment known as the Kokoro Company, Ltd. whose most popular android is known as Actroid.

The Sanrio Company started off as a character merchandise producing company that specialized in the gift giving industry. It first started in 1960 known as the Yamanashi Silk Company and officially changed its name to Sanrio in 1973. Hello Kitty was added the following year and has remained the most popular and most profitable among the characters of Sanrio. Other Sanrio characters include Kerropi, Chococat, Badtz-Maru, Kuromi, Deery-lou, Sweet Coron, Tenorikuma, My Meoldy, Cinnamonroll, Charmmy Kitty, Chi Chai Monchan, Chibimaru, Kuririn, Landry, Little Twin Stars, Sugarbunnies, Sugarminuet, Minna No Tabo, Monkichi, Pandapple, Pekkle, Pochacco, Purin, Shinkansen, Spottie Dottie, Dokidoki Yummychums, TuxedoSam and U*SA*HA*NA.

The Sanrio Franchise is an excellent option for those that not only wish to establish a sense of financial independence and security but also for those that possess a passion for the production of these fun products. The Sanrio character line is one of the most popular worldwide and thus making easy for one to make profit by utilizing the already existing credibility and brand name, to generate revenue as well as gather profit.

There are several retail advantages one can benefit from being a Sanrio franchise owner and these include the proven product line which is over 30 years of market success in the US alone, a vast array or various product line characters. Up to 100 new items made shipped and delivered almost every month and retail prices range from $.50 to $50. National publicity support is also provided especially along the initial stages of business operation.

Interested franchise applicants may apply online on the official company website online or may consider visiting one of their businesses directly to inquire. Franchises territories, prices and other concerns vary on location as Sanrio has several branches not only in Japan but worldwide so different rates apply to different countries. Also you need not be a business management expert or a marketing specialist to engage in this type of franchise as training is readily available upon approval of the franchise application request. With this there are things such as location and financing options that you must consider. Luckily these issues may all be settled with Sanrio as they offer excellent support for all their franchise owners, not only during the initial planning and construction stages but also well beyond the business operation of your establishment.
