Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - May 23, 2024) - Happy Belly Food Group Inc.

We are pleased to announce that our multi-unit agreement that was to see five (5) Heal Wellness stores being opened across major cities in British Columbia has now been upsized to ten (10) units, with the first unit opening its doors in the coming weeks.

"We are experiencing robust organic support from our current franchisees, many of whom are eager to expand into multi-unit ownership. It's especially encouraging when those who already manage multiple units show interest in acquiring more. Today exemplifies this enthusiasm perfectly. We are thrilled that our existing multi-unit franchisee for Heal in British Columbia has requested to double their committed units from 5 to 10. This truly demonstrates the franchisee support for our brand and reflects Happy Belly's dedication to serving and supporting its franchisees as part of the Happy Belly family," said Sean Black, Chief Investment Officer of Happy Belly.

"The success of our franchising program (that we are witnessing today) is reflected in the consistent expansion of our brands across Canada, while maintaining the high level of interest generated from both new and existing franchisees. This achievement is attributed to the robust support system, proven business model, and strong brand reputation that Happy Belly provides. Franchisees benefit from comprehensive training, ongoing mentorship, and a wealth of resources that equip them to effectively run their businesses. The program's ability to reduce the risks typically associated with entrepreneurship while offering a clear path to profitability attracts a steady stream of investors eager to join. Additionally, the enthusiasm of current franchisees to increase their ownership and commitment to the brand further underscores the program's effectiveness and appeal. This combination of factors drives our franchise's growth, ensuring sustained success and a thriving franchise network."
