About fifteen years ago, I was presented the opportunity to buy a franchise store called Wine Kitz. I was very curious about the prospect of owning such a business because I am a fifth generation winemaker with a lot of wine related experience. But, before I took such a big step, I wanted to be certain of the quality of the wine that could be made from these kits.
After meeting with one of the founders of the organization, I quickly realized that this company was truly committed to providing the best possible wine on the market. I was informed about their grape selection process and the strict quality control standards applied to the juice (raw material) before they purchase it. As a matter of fact, Wine Kitz is so sure that the customers will love the end result, that they implement a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If for any reason, the customer is not happy with their product, we will either replace the batch or refund the purchase price. After seeing all this, I knew this was the franchise for me.
Some things have changed since I purchased this business over fifteen years ago. A large and very well established company took Wine Kitz under their wing. This company is Andrew Peller Limited of Niagara, Ontario. They own several famous wineries such as Peller Estates and Hillebrand who have established themselves as having some of the best wines coming out of the region. Their continued commitment to quality and their seemingly endless resources have assisted in bringing Wine Kitz to the of the wine kit industry.
At the store level, we operate under a special license titled “Ferment on Premise Facility License” This license is issued by the Alcohol & Gaming Commission of Ontario and is governed by the Liquor License Act. This license allows us to provide a facility where an individual can come in, select a wine kit of their choice and have it prepared for them on site. They are required to return after a specified period of time to bottle their product. Not only is this process fun and rewarding, but it can save you a significant amount of money.
A batch of our wine which normally produces 30 – 750ml bottles can cost from as little as $99.99 up to $229.99. When you do the math, this averages out to only $3.30 - $6.67 per bottle, a truly unbeatable deal. So many ask us, “how is this possible or this sounds too good to be true” Well, first and foremost, you are purchasing in larger quantities allowing for a bulk discount to be applied, and second, you are not required to pay the alcohol tax because when you order the wine, it is still in a juice (no alcohol) state.
Liquor tax on wine in the province of Ontario can range from 30% to 68% in certain cases. When you combine all of this with the fact that our Wine Kitz store is a family owned and operated business and run by individuals who are knowledgeable, friendly and eager to assist you with any questions or concerns, you really have a winning combination.
So come in and say hello and have us prepare the wine that is best suited to your tastes.
