E-Cigarette Franchising is Rising

VaporFi FranchiseThere’s no time like the present. So if you have ever given owning a franchising serious thought, consider the electronic cigarette industry as the gift of your future endeavor –  available now.

And at the forefront of this entrepreneurial charge is VaporFi.

Established by parent company International Vapor Group (IVG) in 2013, VaporFi drew the immediate praise of many hardcore e-smokers as well as would-be entrepreneurs. Recognizing the chance for expansion, IVG introduced VaporFi’s franchise opportunities in 2014, and by 2016 the brand has seen excellent demand to join a company with an established track record continuing to reflect the many successful stores and lounges that have already opened for business.

So why franchise with VaporFi? Here are just some of the gainful benefits, shall we say, “in-store:”

  • All VaporFi e-liquid sold is made in the USA.
  • All products are manufactured by VaporFi who backs their products 100%.
  • With production and manufacturing done ‘in-house,’ VaporFi guarantees low-overhead; saving you money while earning more of it.
  • Increase profitability with VaporFi’s exclusive revenue sharing program, which pays commission for all internet sales generated in your store’s area.
  • Offering some of the most durable devices and unique e-liquid blends on the market, the name VaporFi is not only well-known but synonymous with quality, innovation and customer satisfaction.

There is little doubt the e-cigarette business has grown at a rapid pace and continues to do so as popularity for the most recognizable alternative to smoking skyrockets the world over. Overall sales of e-cigs and vaping products such as mods, vape pens devices, and e-liquids are expected to surpass $10 billion by 2017. And such accelerated growth is directly attributed to e-cig firms like VaporFi, who initiated their brand’s successful presence online and have since enjoyed significant market share with continued store location openings throughout numerous cities and states across the country, as well as internationally.

New York’s State of Vape

New York VapingNew York has always been known as The City That Never Sleeps. But one might imagine how Frank Sinatra would have spread the news if it were declared The City That Never Smokes.

According to a recent, and first of its kind study conducted by NYC’s Health Department, more than a half million city adults say they use electronic cigarettes. The findings, published by the New York Post, indicate a significant shift in the amount of younger people who prefer “vaping” over old fashioned tobacco smokes. The report also signals an already rapidly increasing trend as to just how much sales are far better for e-cigarettes and far worse when it comes to traditional cigarette today as opposed to yesteryear.

The Details   

According to the newly annual Community Health survey, around 14% of New Yorkers ages 18 to 24 acknowledge having used e-cigarettes or nicotine-infused vapor mods within the past year. Those who identified within the ages 25 to 44 made up roughly 11%, while the total number of adults surveyed found that 8% say they have vaped over the past 12 months.

The study also reveals Staten Island leading all boroughs with 12% going the way of the vape, and when broken down even further, Staten Island’s North Shore and the Brooklyn neighborhood of Bensonhurst led all New York City areas – topping over 14%. Such results clearly indicate millennials and generation X-ers take a particular liking to e-cigs over tobacco and that the trend has unlimited potential within older age groups seeking an alternative to smoking.  

So without further delay, it is fair to say that vaping is here to stay. And though hurdles still remain, large, progressive cities such as New York continue to have a profound influence on both the social acceptance and financial persistence fueling its ever-growing market popularity and profitability, well into the foreseeable future.
