About JustBooks 

JustBooks Solutions Pvt. Ltd. is a new generation community library chain that provides a unique reading experience to book lovers with a wide range of books for every type of reader – toddlers to teens, dabblers to bookworms – under a modern, vibrant ambience with effective use of technology.

At JustBooks, there is a book for everyone in the family. Proven practices from the retail industry (like warehouse-backed operations with centralised inventory) combine with new generation technology to meet the ultimate goal of every library – get every book a reader and get every reader his or her book. JustBooks has revolutionised the routine book circulation activities of a library by introducing RFID-based, unmanned kiosks for members to choose a book and check-out from the library without any time-consuming manual processing.

*PLEASE NOTE: the franchise models are only available in Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Tamil Nadu at this time.*

The Physical Model

The franchisor manages the back-end of the business and provides the requisites (books, technological support, operations and marketing) needed to run the front-end of the business, i.e. the store operations. The franchisee then manages the store (provides the space and the staff required to run the branch).

Investment: approx. Rs. 12,00,000 with a Rs. 4,00,000 refundable deposit.

a) Franchise fee: Rs. 3,00,000 (fixed)
This is used towards providing the self-help kiosk (touchscreen), store launch marketing, fabrication and installation of signage board, shipping of the initial stock of books, branch set-up by JustBooks representatives, in-store training to the staff, and provision of initial supplies (membership cards, magazine tags, membership-related forms and booklets, etc.).

b) Books: Rs. 6,00,000/- (approx.)
Minimum 2,800 to 3,000 books should be kept in the library.

c) Library interiors: Rs. 3,00,000 (approx.)

d) Refundable deposit: the reason for keeping a refundable deposit is because the franchisee will be having enough advance cash collected from members at any point in time. For example, an average member pays for four to six months and leaves enough surplus cash with the franchisee as cash inflow. When exiting the agreement, the advance will be adjusted against the liability that the franchisee is holding and the balance will be returned.

80% revenue will be taken by the franchisee and 20% is to be shared with JustBooks. 10% of the franchisee's share is to be set aside for marketing every month.

The Online Model

Warehousing is done by the franchisee. The service offered to the customers will be doorstep delivery only using the JustBooks website and app. It can also be hybrid, where the location chosen will be a low-rent place which will be just a takeaway place of 100 to 200 sq. ft for those who are not willing to order on the website. The place will be positioned as a one million books hub for online/delivery/access.  

The franchisor will manage the back-end of the business and provide the requisites (books, technological support, operations and marketing) needed to run the front-end of the business, i.e. store operations. The franchisee manages the warehouse (provides the space and the staff required to run it).

Investment: approx. Rs. 5,00,000 with a Rs. 2,00,000 refundable deposit.

 a) Franchise fee: Rs. 1,50,000 (fixed)
This is used towards providing delivery hub launch marketing, fabrication and installation of signage board, shipping of initial stock of books, branch set-up by JustBooks representatives, in-store training to the staff at the warehouse, and initial supplies (membership cards, magazine tags, membership-related forms and booklets, etc.).

b) Books: Rs. 3,00,000 (approx.)
Minimum 1,000 to 1,200 books to be kept in the warehouse.

c) Warehouse interiors: Rs. 50,000 (approx.)
To set up front desk and to get racks for stocking books.

d) Refundable deposit: same as for the physical model.

80% revenue will be taken by the franchisee and 20% is to be shared with JustBooks. 10% of the franchisee's share is to be set aside for marketing every month.

20% revenue is to be shared with JustBooks because they will provide the following services:

a) Technology  
The JustBooks network is completely tech. enabled. This means an online account for each and every customer of your franchise, and an easy and potent library management system to help you supervise/manage your store off site.

b) Operations
This includes all inventory/books management and movement services, and also includes the movement of books between store and warehouse (Bangalore). There is also an operations help desk available to each franchisee and their staff.

c) Royalty 
This goes towards using the JustBooks brand name and for the marketing team to provide support in online marketing i.e. manpower support, creatives and helping with vendors' coordination.
