Inc500CircleLogoThe company does not charge many of the fees that come standard in the industry. So, our “Business-within-a-Business (BWB)” retail partners pay NO upfront franchise fees and NO ongoing royalties. Where many brands charge their retailers 2%-5% to cover advertising fees, PFSbrands flips that one around.

The company banks up to 6% of a retailer’s Champs Chicken product purchases on behalf of the retailer in a special Marketing Development Fund (MDF). The retailer will then be able use these manufacturer-provided monies to underwrite approved local advertising activities designed to increase their Champs Chicken sales to consumers. Two of three Champs Chicken partner levels (silver and gold) can also earn additional annual Volume Incentive Rebates in the amount of .5% to 5.0%.

Check out our ad support monies (MDF). The company contributes many hundreds of thousands of dollars on this program annually, which has been reported on by industry media. How much your store will receive depends upon the partner level you choose. Shown below are the amounts of MDF we will bank for you based on your partner level:

  • GOLD: We similarly bank a full 6% of your Champs Chicken purchases. Plus, we grant you an Upfront MDF Pool of $1,000 to get you started in a big way.
  • SILVER: We similarly bank 3.5% of your Champs Chicken purchases. Plus, we grant you an Upfront MDF Pool of $500 to get you started.

This program is reserved for Silver and Gold Partners only. So long as you purchase a minimum of $80,000 per calendar and grow your purchasing volume by 2.5% year-over-year, SILVER partners earn a cash rebate of a 0.5% to 2.5% of their calendar year purchases depending upon volume. Similarly, GOLD partners earn a cash rebate of a 1% to 5% of their calendar year purchases again depending upon volume. Your Business Developer will provide you with further details on our VIR program, which can drop additional profits straight to your bottom line every year.

Throughout the year, the company releases a National Promotion to all of its Champs Chicken retailers with aggressive retail price points that are supported by case rebates on the promoted products. These Limited Time Offers (LTO’s) with their aggressive retail price points still provide excellent profit margins for the retailers who opt-in. Historically, the promotions are generating 50% or more in sales growth for the promoted products for participants. Now, the company is sending consumers (who register online) advance email notifications of our LTO’s and suggest they visit their local Champs Chicken retailer by name.
