Together instead of alone

There are many advantages in opening a low cost franchise business, instead of doing it alone.  With a franchise, you are in business for yourself, but not by yourself.

Partnering with 2nd Take through our low cost franchise business options available in all South African Provinces will give you a head start in establishing your own business.

2nd Take is a member of the Franchise Association of South Africa

2nd Take is a member of the Franchise Association of South Africa, FASA and the Cape Chamber of Commerce. It has been an  excellent experience for 2nd Take to work with FASA, to ensure that our Franchise offering is 100% aligned with best practices and legal requirements.


In the words of the great Thomas A. Edison “I have not failed, I’ve just found 10 000 ways that won’t work.”

We at 2nd Take have done exactly that already for you, so you don’t have to find out the hard way, what works and what doesn’t. When establishing a business, you are bound to make some wrong choices until you find the way that works and leads you to success.  With 2nd Take as a partner in one of our low cost franchises, building your own second-hand clothing business has become a whole lot easier.


Some start up business facts

Especially small, low capital, start-up businesses are very vulnerable in their first years and making a wrong decision could be fatal. In January 2014, The Small Business Development Centre, Bradly University in the US, published their latest research on small business start ups. They found that 25% of new start up businesses failed in their 1st year, 36% in their 2nd year and of those left 44% failed in their third year. Only 47% of new retail business still operated after 4 years of opening.

Last year’s Global Entrepreneurship Week highlighted the poorly enabled business environment in South Africa. The government’s Small Enterprise Development Agency (SEDA) is under performing and general entrepreneurship initiatives lack integration and business, especially small ones, are being hampered by red tape.

In this tough and challenging business environment, it is important to have a strong business partner, who can tick a lot of boxes when it comes to experience and support, to help you over the hurdles of starting up your own business. It is great to have a Franchise Partner, who has as much interest in the success of your business, than you do. It is important to us that you turn this low cost Franchise Opportunity into a success! 2nd Take aims to attract the right kind of entrepreneur to build a large and strong Franchise network of 2nd Take second-hand designer clothing stores in South Africa. Thinking of second-hand designer wear must equal thinking of 2nd Take.
