Matt Toopes and John Scott of VaporFi
Leading e-cigarette brand VaporFi has true American entrepreneurs in its family in the form of franchisees and local business owners Matt Toopes and John Scott. The duo opened their first vapor franchise business with the brand in Ohio in 2014. Following their strong success with the initial store, they have since opened another five locations in the state, creating new jobs in the area and benefiting their local community as a result.
With this vaping franchise, owners must be committed to product knowledge, success in operations and top-notch customer service. This is an area where the brand team in Ohio excel, and it's helped them grow their business at a rapid place.
Naturally, the two men realized they needed an outstanding manager to keep their expanding operation running smoothly. After considering many applicants, they hired Amanda Verbsky for the district manager role. Verbsky can be found in a VaporFi location daily, helping to ensure customer service remains a top focus. Part of the brand's direction is for employees to build consultant-type relationships with repeating customers as this helps form a bond and boosts the word of mouth on the ground in the community.
Part of an industry that is expected to hit $50 billion by 2025, as reported by firm Bis Research (https://bisresearch.com/industry-report/electronic-cigarette-market-size-forecast.html), VaporFi offers exciting franchise opportunities in a growing market that is starting to soar. The brand recently announced another 17 locations across six states and currently has franchise opportunities available. The franchise fee is $29,900, and the initial investment ranges from $137,200 to $277,900.
