Franchise Business Opportunities

A Cartridge World franchise is an opportunity to become
self employed by utilising the expertise that comes from
buying into not only an established system but also a brand
name that is recognised worldwide.

The Cartridge World franchise unites the skills and resources of an experienced and established company with the driving ambition and dedication of the individual investor.

Our Business

Cartridge World is the world’s largest dedicated specialty retailer of Ink & Toner printer cartridges. We handle every major brand of printer cartridges for home, education or business (large & small) and we are committed to providing great value that is backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee.  Any one of our 200 stores Australia wide will be happy to provide you with a solution that fits your home or office requirements.

Currently Cartridge World has 1,000 stores worldwide, located in 55 countries and has appointed 65 Master Franchisees. In Australia we now have 200 franchisees, with up to another 20 to 30 stores in existing territories to be opened shortly.

Our Customer base is growing

Market research shows that more than 85%* of people currently throw away their used cartridges and buy new ones. Imagine what this means in terms of the growth potential of our industry as more and more people realise they can have their cartridges refilled and pocket the savings.

With only 22% of cartridges currently being refilled in Australia and our aggressive plans for the future with public education, the future is bright and prosperous for Cartridge World, its franchisees, customers and the environment.
