With a proven franchise model that spans over 20 years, Cash Crusaders welcomed its 200th franchise store to the family at the popular Protea Glen Mall in Soweto on 24 February 2017.
Since 1996, the Cash Crusaders business model has proven itself time and time again against recession and fluctuating economic conditions, making it a sought-after franchise opportunity for passionate entrepreneurs. This year the proudly South African group aims to open thirty more franchise stores, further strengthening its reputation as the largest secondhand retailer in southern Africa, three times the size of its closest competitor.
This 20-year success story is attributed to the company ethos of helping entrepreneurs be in business for themselves, but not by themselves, coupled with a successful three-tier business model that allows franchisees to maximise their profit potential by diversifying their service offerings.
In line with this strategy, all stores trade in competitively priced secondhand items including mobile phones, appliances, laptops, electronics, and more.
In addition to its secondhand offerings, Cash Crusaders is committed to being a niche provider of quality private label new goods, giving customers access to a wide variety of value-for-money new goods which are sourced internationally. These range from home theatres, electronics and car audio to musical instruments, housewares and smartphones and include private label brands such as DXN Pro, Dixon, Jebson, Sanchez and Amber. These brands make high-end consumer goods more accessible to South African consumers, such as DXN Pro DJ equipment and the Sanchez range, which together make Cash Crusaders the largest DJ and musical instruments retailer on the African continent.
Cash Cash Crusaders is also proud to offer its customers a hassle-free online loan service called Pawn Express – fast, safe and secured short-term loans for life’s unexpected expenses. For more information, visit pawnexpress.co.za
