recycling of printing consumables and printer specialists
Description of franchise system
A BIG FISH in printing
BIG FISH is a one stop solution for all printers. We offer printer supply, maintenance, repairs and toner cartridges. For customers who appreciate a truly green solution, we offer our remanufactured toner cartridges, which are produced in the UK. Our remanufactured toner cartridges are also consistently lower priced than new ones.
We believe that buying a new printer is an investment, and that's why we offer independent expert advice to our customers. Our products include:
- specialty printer paper
- fax machines
- all storage media
- all fax and printer consumable requirements
- remanufactured BIG FISH toner cartridges
- printer servicing for all major manufacturers
- laser, inkjet and dot matrix printers
- toner recycling collection services - for free!
- printer and fax authorized services
We believe that prevention is always better than cure. We offer our customers the SAFETYNET guarantee to call out within a single working day, if anything should go wrong with their printers. If repair time exceeds 24 hours, we will supply a loan printer or fax until we have completed the repair and the original printer or fax is back at its place.
Our technicians are ready to provide help whenever one of our customers makes an emergency call. We provide rapid on site services, and in any case, if we can't repair a printer or fax, we don't charge anything.
A BIG franchise opportunity
BIG FISH is fully committed to franchising. We have been franchising since we started our operation in 2000 and we have been redefining our franchise system for more than ten years now. The BIG FISH franchise support package starts with our initial training program, where you will learn everything you need to know to successfully operate your own BIG FISH franchise business.
But our training doesn't end here. We have designed an ongoing training program to ensure that our franchisees are always informed on the latest technologies and operational enhancements. As a BIG FISH franchisee you will be able to supply the full BIG FISH support package including office equipment supply and technical maintenance to your customers. As a BIG FISH franchisee, you'll be an Active Service Provider of all major printer brands such as Lexmark, Konica Minolta, Tally Genicom, and Kyocera.
