Join the movement…
We are extremely proud to have created a revolutionary retail concept that creates enthusiasm, confidence & above all, fantastic income.
We welcome you - Welcome and thank you for your interest in The Source Bulk Foods franchise and giving us the chance to share our story with you...
After opening their first store in Chiswick in 2018, Mak and Pat, who own the United Kingdom and Ireland Master Franchise, are excited to continue expanding the The Source brand and open up their unique shopping concept to more customers across the United Kingdom.
Coming from diverse career backgrounds Mak and Pat bring valuable expertise that, combined with their passion for zero-waste living and healthy food, has driven amazing growth for The Source Bulk Foods Franchise across the UK and Ireland. Having identified an opportunity for plastic-free bulk food shopping, and subsequently discovering The Source brand while in Australia, Mak and Pat spent a year establishing the brand in the UK before opening in Ireland with a specialised product range catered to the local Irish community.
Our Journey So Far…
The Source Bulk Foods came to the UK in 2018 with the opening of the first store in London, Chiswick. There are now 7 stores in the UK and 2 in Ireland. We think this is only the beginning. We want to see healthy plastic-free shopping all over the UK and Ireland and are looking for Franchise Partners to help us make that a reality.

As a Franchise Partner you get the benefits of joining our proven and successful business. This means that your business can be up and running faster and is more likely to meet your goals. There are many advantages to being part of a larger group including benefiting from the buying scale across our group, the continuous development of new product lines and evolution of the business as well as group wide and store specific marketing campaigns and materials.
How will you support me and my business?
From the beginning we are there to support you as you build your business including locating the ideal site, designing the store and fixtures, and managing the fit-out project. We will train you in all aspects of running a The Source Bulk Foods during our in-store Discovery Week including customer service, product filling and cleaning processes, ordering and inventory management, staff rostering, back of house operations and more. As opening day nears we will be there with you and the team to prepare the store while providing training to the team on handling the products and the day to day store operations. Then as the doors open and we welcome your first customers we are on site beside you to make sure everything is running smoothly.
After open we continue to support our Franchise Partners with on-going Training, Product Support, Marketing and Operations. All stores receive regular Quality Reviews and where required we work with you to optimise the performance of your team and the store.
