Become An E-Cig Franchisee

In 2014, we opened our first retail e-cigarette store in Guildford, Surrey, which has managed to achieve a turnover of £727,000 with an annual net profit in excess of £120,000 in its first year, after taking into account all expenses as if it were an arm’s length business.

In 2016 we are proud to announce our new E-Cigarette Franchise Programme to allow others to share in our success and own their own branded Vapestore E-Cig Shop.

We have chosen the brand name of “Vapestore” to reflect the wide range of high quality vaping products and e-liquids that we stock, from some of the world’s top vape brands.
