Franchising | Greenhawk


"We are searching for individuals who will own and operate their franchise and bring excellent people and management skills to the opportunity."

Established in 1985, Greenhawk is a Canadian owned family business and is Canada's largest supplier of equestrian products with locations across Canada.

If you are looking for a lifestyle or career change, Greenhawk offers an excellent opportunity to shine in the world of equestrian sport. Equestrian retailing is a dynamic, fun and rewarding experience, and is ideal for the individual with strong equestrian experience who seeks a career in the horse industry. The ideal candidate will live the horsey life and  be actively involved in the industry.

We currently have excellent opportunities available for Franchise's in the following areas.

AB: Banff, Cold Lake, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat

MB: Brandon

ON: Thunder Bay, Timmins, Huntsville, Bracebridge, Sarnia

QC: Mont Tremblant

Newfoundland: St John's

Additional opportunities and locations are available across Canada and Internationally. New store considerations are ideally 90 minutes or more away from existing locations.

We offer 4 unique concepts from which to choose from.

Greenhawk Full Format are large format stores carrying a complete complement of inventory and are ideal for major markets across Canada. A Full Format Greenhawk should become the local hub for the equestrian community in your area and customers will often drive for long distances to shop. Stores are designed to have significant drawing power and are a major source of pride for the local equestrian community.

Greenhawk Express locations are similar to Full Format but operate with a smaller store footprint and a more limited selection of product. They are ideal for secondary markets and more rural communities.

Full Format and Express are designed for the individual with a strong equestrian background and a desire to seek a career in the horse industry. Stores are stand alone and require a full time commitment. Stores and setup are almost turnkey with the Franchisee playing a significant role in the process.

Greenhawk Advantage locations are excellent opportunities to combine a Greenhawk store with an existing business. Advantage locations can be combined with existing ventures such as feed mills, co-ops, larger boarding and riding schools, pet stores, town hardware stores and so on. Advantage stores are convenience locations by nature and are staffed by existing store staff from the main business.

Greenhawk at The Barn locations are excellent small scale opportunities primarily aimed at riding and boarding facilities. They are convenience style outlets for the immediate community. Ideal barns are those offering riding lessons, horse shows and or public stabling although the concept can be adapted to fit almost any size barn.

Please note some concepts may not be available in areas already serviced by an existing Greenhawk location.
