We have put together an excellent franchise package which will enable you to build your own successful TRUS business either starting from new or converting your existing retail business to the TRUS brand

TRUS - Retail Franchise Brief Overview
TRUS is a retail business started in 1998 and currently has a number of stores operating under the same banner – the main ‘flagship’ store in Carterton Oxfordshire and satellite stores in nearby towns.
The shop trades in ‘really useful’ items that are good value i.e. low price but quality goods. TRUS is therefore recession resilient - an important consideration for prospective franchisees given the UK economic outlook over the next few years. The TRUS franchise therefore combines an attractive opportunity with a relatively safe investment.
