Canadian Online Business Niche Idea – Bulk Candy ©

Have you ever been searching for something in Canada and thought, “Somebody should start a business in that”?  It happens to me all the time!  I’ll be sharing these niches with you as they come up, in the hopes of inspiring a business idea or two.  We begin this series with a quick guide for starting an online bulk candy business in Canada.

I’ve been looking for online bulk candy suppliers in Canada for occasions like Halloween.  I found one or two with a limited selection and high prices, but nothing impressive at truly bulk prices.  After relentless searching, I could only find truly bulk candy suppliers outside of Canada, and the shipping was too high to make an order feasible.  In my desperation, I tried to find a Bulk Barn offline in my area, but I couldn’t find one of those either (take note, British Columbia, there’s a bonus franchise idea here).

The Possibilities in this Niche

A candy store can change with the seasons to become a thriving business all year ’round.  Canadians love their candy and many occasions call for it, such as:

What You’ll Need

Bonus Tip:  You can offer popular products if you can give shoppers a seriously good bulk candy discount.  To really bring them in and encourage orders with a higher profit margin, also stock unique products that may not be easy to find in Canadian retail.  Unique items can overcome online sales objections, such as shipping costs.  Keep an eye on your local bulk food stores to maintain your originality and competitive pricing.
