Why Join The Dice Box
If you’re passionate about providing an unrivalled level of customer service, have a thirst for running your own business and simply love board games, then The Dice Box would be the perfect opportunity for you. The Dice Box business model includes several revenue streams. Firstly, an entry fee applies to customers, which gives access to the board game café. Thereafter, a variety of teas, coffees, sandwiches and other refreshments are available through the café kitchen. There is also the opportunity to upsell on the fact that board games can be purchased through the in-café shop.
When you join The Dice Box, you’ll receive everything you need to set up your own established gaming café. This includes:
Full Training and Ongoing Support – Steph, Trev, a team of franchise consultants and a dedicated head-office team are on hand to help you launch your own board game cafe.
Stock – For the franchise investment, you receive everything you need to set up shop, and this includes initial stock, uniforms, marketing packs and more.
Set up and operational assistance - Including Tablet, Electronic Point of Sale, Signage and 1st Year accountancy with company formation.
Exclusive Territory – You’ll be allocated your own franchise territory to trade in, which ensures no other Dice Box franchisees will take potential customers from you.
Launch Marketing – We’ll provide 10,000 flyers as well as inclusion in local magazines and social media shares to make the best possible start in your area.
Rights to Trade – Included in the investment are the rights to trade under The Dice Box brand name, allowing use of the logo and proven systems of operation.
The Earning Potential
With a Dice Box franchise, the earning potential is very much up to you. Therefore, what you get from your board game café depends on how much effort you put into marketing your business, quality of customer service and the size of your Dice Box shop and café. We’d expect a turnover of £150,000 in year one, rising to almost £300,000 in year two and the potential to earn a six-figure income from year 3. These figures are based on existing business turnover in a relatively small venue and will depend on your venue size and willingness to work hard and make your Dice Box franchise the best it can possibly be.

Modern board games are so much fun and so interactive that in todays technology driven world there is nothing better than socialising over a board game.
