The Partnership

Franchising is regarded as the most successful way of distributing products and services in economic history.

When you own a Mary Ryan's franchise, you enter an exciting industry at a time where more then ever, customers are looking for the type of business which can offer a range of products and provide exceptional customer service. Some of our products are similar to our competitors, but we believe that it is the way we deliver our products that is the essential ingredient to our success.

When you become a Mary Ryan's franchisee you become part of the Mary Ryan family while still remaining independent to manage your own business. You will benefit from the Mary Ryan's franchise support system, which provides you with:

  • Buying power and access to a wide product range of book and non-book products.
  • Regular catalogue releases, a Club Card membership program, point-of-sale material, and promotional campaigns.
  • Business support and training.
  • Advice on store layout and design, marketing, purchasing, and business operations.
  • Assistance in negotiating rental leases, and support and guidance with property related issues.
  • Regular franchise meetings to exchange ideas that assist in developing business strategies that benefit the business.

As a member of the Mary Ryan's family you will benefit from our highly experienced support staff and from our own company operated store experiences.

You will also receive ongoing business support and development from our Franchise Management Group, skilled in all aspects of book and café operations. The Group will advise on stock management, shop layout, design, presentation, purchasing, marketing, staffing, and all the day- to-day operational aspects of the business. This will help you to achieve a maximum return on investment. Mary Ryan's conducts regular meetings for franchisees to keep you up-to-date with the latest industry trends and information, and the opportunity to look at the latest retail developments and issues.
