Becoming an owner operator

Franchise opportunities (also known as owner-operator) do arise from time to time thanks to new store development or the sale of an existing business.  We are happy to consider external candidates for these opportunities.

The entry point for people new to grocery retailing is usually at our iconic Four Square stores. This is mainly due to the fact that management of our larger stores requires considerable industry knowledge and experience.

For further information about current franchise opportunities and criteria please use our contact form.

Four Square

The local Four Square has grown to become one of New Zealand's most iconic identities and, as Foodstuffs' first grocery store, it is our organisation's heritage brand. With over 240 stores nationwide, Four Square stores range from small neighbourhood shops in larger towns and cities, perfect for picking up last minute ingredients for dinner or dessert, to larger grocery stores in rural and provincial regions that serve their communities’ everyday shopping needs.
