A Unique Opportunity to bring healthier, more sustainable products

terra20’s goal is to make it easier for everyone to live a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle. Over the years we’ve grown a loyal and committed community of customers and vendors who together are benefiting both people and the planet. Now, through our franchise program, we want to extend that reach by opening smaller, neighbourhood stores in communities across Canada.  

terra20 is now accepting applications for franchise opportunities in 2021 and 2022.

If you are passionate about health and sustainability, and want to take ownership of your career, a terra20 franchise might just be the opportunity for you!

Louise Chouinard - terra20 Orleans Franchise

" Andre and I chose terra20 because I am very passionate about green beauty. I have been an esthetician working with organic skin care for almost 20 years now. I love sharing my product knowledge with customers and friends. We are also very aware of the havoc chemicals can have on the human body, animals and most importantly the planet.

I would encourage anyone who wants to embark in a business journey to join the terra20 family because we have an amazing team of very talented individuals that make our buying, marketing and education easy. They offer us tools and resources to manage our store with success. The warehouse team goes above and beyond to make sure the franchises are fully stocked. Our merchandising team is equipped with experience and a great eye for trends. Last but not least, Bill is our biggest cheerleader! He is only a call away and always ready to help. Hands on and dedicated to our success, he is the President any franchisee dreams of having by their side."
