We are a full member of the British Franchise Association (BFA) and when you choose ‘Thorntons in your store’ that is just the very beginning of our working relationship.

This is an opportunity for UK-based stores only - we do not franchise internationally.

Having Thorntons in your store is a trading format covered by an agreement in which both parties commit and work in partnership. Thorntons in your store holds all the elements which have made Thorntons famous for over 100 years and takes up to 350 square foot, depending on the opportunity. Sales would range from £80,000 up to a possible £250,000


• Thornton’s in your store is run as a franchise

• The Franchise Fee is £1,000 for 5 years, that is less than 60 pence a day!

• The ‘Thornton’s in your store’ insertion costs around £25,000

• We have a set up incentive scheme, which we’re happy to discuss with you if you’re interested in setting up

• We look forward to creating an exiting element in your store that:

• gives you a new product range
