One World Fine Foods, a specialty natural food and product market founded in San Diego in 2004 by Michael and Bibiana Bulloch, is now offering franchise opportunities to California and other parts of the country.
With a vision to become the leading brand of “Neighborhood Natural Markets,” One World combines the characteristics of a convenience market with a healthful product and service offering, all situated in a small and efficient footprint and operates within a proven, solid food service niche.
"Our location in downtown San Diego was met with overwhelming positive response since the opening. We've been welcomed by the community as a neighbor," said Bulloch. "I’m now excited to offer the One World Fine Foods opportunity to those in other parts of the state and country who share an appreciation for healthy and active living and who want to help others achieve vitality in their lives.”
One World provides personalized, hands-on training and support to each franchisee including: a location analysis and real estate support, assistance with third-party financing, store build-out and opening, information systems designed to help manage business effectively and efficiently and neighborhood marketing systems customized for rapid neighborhood saturation.
The operation requires only 2,500 to 4,000 square feet that is perfect for an urban, mixed-use development that combines dense daytime population and neighborhood residents, like the flagship store in downtown San Diego.
"Our goal is to award 25 franchises and five company units in the next five years,” said Bulloch who said the franchise fee for one unit is $35,000 and the estimated cost to establish a new One World franchise is between $454,000 and $715,000. “Our main concern is to grow ethically while ensuring excellent support for our new markets and to maintain the One World quality not just quantity.”
