Tackle Trailer 
The UK’s local fishing stores
Your fastest, simplest - most affordable - route into fishing tackle retail 
Tackle Trailer equips its Franchisees to create a successful and rewarding business marketing fishing tackle, bait, clothing and accessories to local customers at competitive 'online' prices.
Our mission is to provide ambitious entrepreneurs and enthusiastic anglers with a cost effective route into tackle and bait retail - allowing you to access leading brands and leverage volume economies without committing to prohibitive High Street premises costs.
As a member of the Tackle Trailer team, you’ll be able to compete on price and service with larger Internet stores too - making you the first choice and best value for local customers when it comes to more expensive branded products.


Tackle retail: the facts

The UK leisure angling market was valued by Tackle and Gun magazine at more than £1/2 billion –– with average turnover per store rising from £172,830 in 2003 to £218,653 last year.

As a Tackle trailer Franchisee you’ll benefit from:
  • Your own exclusive Tackle Trailer territory
  • Advantageous direct-buying terms with leading wholesalers
  • An ecommerce website stocked with top brand products at competitor-matched prices
  • The backing of a highly experienced sales and marketing team - to help you grow your business at your own pace


Earn while you sleep

Like so many businesses today, Tackle Trailer Franchisees may depend on the Internet for upwards of 60% of their income. Yet only a very few of them will have Internet experience.

And why should they - since we take care of every aspect of their web-based business for them.


As a Tackle Trailer Franchisee, all you have to do is promote the Tackle Trailer website on your Tackle Trailer, on your business cards and in your personalised promotional flyers (yes; we supply those too).


And we do the rest: promoting your events, processing your orders, arranging payment and delivery.... and sending your commission direct to you every month.  



Support, Sales & Marketing, and Finances


Tackle Trailer Franchise Partners are exactly that: partners. From the moment you ‘sign on the dotted line’, you’ll be assured of all the help and advice you need to help your new business survive… and thrive.

Our initial training will get you off to a flying start and covers everything you need to successfully operate and continue to develop your mobile tackle retail business.

The programme includes:

  • Hands on training at our warehouse, covering the product ranges, ordering and administrative processes, and introducing you to the marketing tools and techniques that you’ll use to launch – and ensure a ready market – for your Tackle Trailer business in your region.
  • Access to an award-winning online training programme, business plan builder and video library - providing you with the business, marketing and financial skills you’ll need to hit the ground running in your new venture.
  • Training in key business and finance skills – including use of our bespoke accounting solution.


With Tackle Trailer, you also will benefit from national brand equity and from our ongoing marketing, advertising and PR efforts.

In order to give your business the best possible start, we have also designed a launch programme for you to implement to create maximum local awareness - featuring:

  • Media release(s) announcing your arrival
  • Local press advertising
  • Leaflet distribution
  • Direct mail  
  • Social media


As well as this, we recognise that financial management is a key challenge for beginning entrepreneurs. So we’ve pulled out all the stops to make the process as painless as possible, providing you with a suite of easy-to-use web-based bookkeeping software backed by a highly experienced team of accountants – enabling you to tap into the financial advice and support you need, when you need it.


Our Ideal Franchise Partners: anglers first, business people second

Tackle Trailer Franchisees are first and foremost anglers.


Experienced and knowledgeable with a longstanding passion for the sport, they stay right up to date – conversant and quick to adopt the latest products, approaches and thinking.


Outgoing and enthusiastic, sociable and service-oriented, they are committed to keeping our promises, and are quick to identify, respond to and feed-back changing trends and demand.


Driven and ambitious, they have the determination to develop a profitable business in their region - and maybe beyond. 



So: what's it cost? Now the really good news...


A Tackle Trailer Franchise costs just £29,995+VAT including your fully stocked trailer. And funding of up to £25,000 is available to successful applicants.

Our ongoing Management Services Fee is refreshingly low too, at just 6% of turnover – a figure that you’ll easily offset against the generous trade discounts offered by our preferred wholesale partners.

A ‘lifestyle’ business which can be operated full or part time (three-four days a week), offering Franchisees the potential to generate operating profits of £25,000 - £70,000 per annum.
