Year Franchising Commenced
Vast Founder & Director Ross Clayton opened the first Vast showroom in Coffs Harbour in 1999 & it was an instant success. Customers loved it so much that several of those very customers became Vast franchisees. Over the next 15 years these new customers/franchisees began to open their own stores throughout Australia.
Since then Vast has opened stores in many locations across Australia & NZ, & still sticks vigorously to its original four rules:
No bland furniture ever!
Use natural & recycled materials!
Hand made & hand finished!
About the Opportunity
We have many new territories available both nationally & internationally & would love to take you along for the ride. Come & join a family of 26 stores across Australia & New Zealand.
NEW STREAMLINED BUSINESS MODEL!
Vast creates value for its customers by being a direct import retailer shipping container loads of furniture directly from the factories to our showrooms ensuring that our exclusive goods land at the best possible price.
This process typically took a long time so we set about creating EPIC. An "Easy Pull Inventory Chain” that allows franchisees to only order in product as it sells with the need for only a minimal local stock holding.
FURNITURE MEETS TECHNOLOGY!
Traditionally the retail furniture industry has been a low-tech affair, traditionally entrenched in the time old ways of sales. However this presented a great opportunity for those willing to invest in technology & change the game forever...that’s us by the way.
Here at Vast we have created a custom in store app that transforms any Customer Advisor into an encyclopedia of Vast knowledge. This helps in giving the customer any information they need, along with doing away with the need for customers to take photos of products on their phone & write notes on paper. Our app emails the customer the products they see on the floor through a high quality digital catalogue allowing them to go home & make an informed choice.
We realise that to be relevant in today’s digital world, adapting to new technology is a must and we consider ourselves pioneers in this exciting new bricks & clicks arena!
THE BEST FURNITURE ON THE PLANET!
And finally and most importantly, our product is awesome!
Vast has been dealing with the same suppliers for decades and has created an exclusive range that dovetails together in our perfectly curated showrooms.
Every range is designed to integrate and cross pollinate with the entire showroom to create a huge range of looks for our customers, with a minimal store footprint.
This process has created our “perfect store”, continually evolving ahead of the trends & automatically updating through our EPIC supply system.
The choice is easy! We fully assist in all facets of store setup & provide ongoing training and technology to ensure that your sales team fully maximise every opportunity & provide an excellent customer experience.
We also provide superior marketing support across social media, local area marketing & customer lifecycle marketing.
